This is a recipe my mother made when we were children. It was so moist it never needed frosting. Mom would use a paper doily to make a pretty powdered sugar design on the top. I have found a couple online, but they just were not as good.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Thoroughly mix dry ingredients in an ungreased 8 x 11" pan. Make 3 wells in the dry mixture and pour the vegetable oil in one, the vanilla in a different one and the vinegar in the last one. Pour the cold water over all and stir with fork until well blended.
- Bake for 30 minutes. Cake is done when center springs back when lightly touched. Do not test with a toothpick or knife.
