DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Mix first 5 dry ingredients in a greased 8" square baking pan. Make 3 depressions in dry ingredients - two small, one larger (see #3 in photo below). Pour vinegar in one depression, vanilla in the other and the vegetable oil in third larger depression. Pour water over all. Mix well until smooth.
  • Bake on middle rack of oven for 35 minutes. Check with toothpick to make sure it comes out clean. Cool. Top with your favorite frosting. Enjoy!
  • Note: Oven cooking times may vary, be sure to check your cake to make sure you do not over bake.
  • TIPS You can double this recipe, just use a 9x13 baking pan.
  • You can also mix the batter in a bowl for neater, easier mixing. Be sure to follow the directions the same way - mixing the dry ingredients then making the depressions for the wet ingredients. Don't forget to grease your pan. You can also make cupcakes - be sure to adjust baking time.
  • Many have shared that this recipe is great served warm or cold with just sprinkling powdered sugar on top!
  • A sweet reader, Lesley, shared photos of her Layered Crazy Cake and Cupcakes. Thank you, Lesley, so thoughtful for you to share with all of us!
  • For the layered cake, she greased her pan and used baking paper (parchment paper) on the bottom. She didn't double the recipe, just cut the cake into a layer.
  • For the cupcakes, she made a dozen using her muffin tin and cupcake liners. The cupcakes were baked at 350 degrees F for 13 minutes (Oven cooking times vary).
