RECIPES: 

 alt Wacky Cake - It's a cake recipe that doesn't use eggs and you don't have to grease the pan. All the dry ingredients (except for the baking soda) are mixed right in the cake pan and then mounded and shaped into a volcano. The oil, water and vanilla are poured around the outside of the volcano and the baking soda is put inside the volcano. Then just pour the vinegar inside the volcano. Watch it erupt. Ohhh and Ahhh and then mix it all up and throw it in the oven. It makes a very yummy, moist cake. It's so moist the we usually didn't frost it. We just sprinkled powder sugar over it. I can't find my recipe but this one looks about the same:

1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon cocoa
1/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup cold water

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Sift dry ingredients into a 9 x 9 inch pan. Mix well. Make 3 holes, one for vinegar, oil and vanilla. Pour water over all. Mix well with fork. Do not beat. Bake at 350 Degrees F for 30 minutes. Leave in pan and frost while still warm.
