DIRECTIONS

  • In 13x9 metal pan mix sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and cocoa to break up cocoa lumps then add flour.
  • Then add vanilla, coffee, oil, and vinegar and mix with fork but do not beat.
  • Sprinkle sugar, about 1/2 cup or enough to create a layer just barely white on the top. Bake at 350 about 30 minutes. Do not cover while warm or sugar topping will melt. I have tried glass pans but it does not do as well.
