Chocolate Wacky Depression Cake


Don't be turned off by the name of this cake - this cake sure won't make you wacky depressed. It got its name because it came from the time of the Great Depression when many of the ingredients for a normal chocalate cake like eggs or butter were hard to afford for many. Even without these ingredients, this is one hell of a cake, so moist and delicious. This being February, I thought of putting yet another chocolate dish. This is specially for my vegan friends and anyone out there with allergy to dairy.
Recipe Source:Savory Sweet Life
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa powder
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 cup water
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Method:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients except chocolate chips together by hand.  Add all the wet ingredients until well combined.  Pour into a 8×8 pan which has been prepared with non stick spray.If using chocolate chips top chocolate chips after 20 minutes of baking .

Bake for 30 until done.  Allow to completely cool before serving. Cake is even better if eaten the next day.
