This is one of my favorite cakes from childhood. It’s my Grandma DuLaney’s recipe (my dad’s mom).
½ tsp salt (I use Kosher but use what ya got)
1 C sugar
1 C HOT water
3 tbsp cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
2 C flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix until just blended, pour into a greased cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Let it cool enough that you can get it out of the pan successfully and then EAT IT!
|Hey! Don't judge! The pan was hot and I burnt my fingers trying to flip this thing!|
It’s BEST WARM (or warmed up in the microwave later).
