- 2 cups sugar

- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3⁄4 cup salad oil
- 2 cups water
- Add all of the dry ingredients to a bowl and mix them together to remove any lumps.
- Add the liquids and mix until smooth.
- pour into an ungreased 9x14 pan, bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
A friend gave me this recipe not long after I was married and said there will be times when you don't have an egg in the house. I cannot recommend this enough, print this off and put this somewhere handy. Tastes great and works EVERY time.
My mom used to make this cake when we were growing up. I haven't made it in years. Boy, it sure brought back wonderful taste bud memories. I am in charge of birthday cake day each month at work and took this today with the Hershey's chocolate frosting recipe. To say it was a hit would be an understatement. I am truly a pie lover but occasionally will have cake, I took one bite of my sister's (we work together) and it was fabulous. Thanks for the memories. So good I'm going to make again for our annual Rod Run trip in a couple of weeks.
My exact recipe .... so yummy!!! Quick and easy and the kids love to help! I use Recipe #80118 for the icing.
