Nana's Wacky (chocolate) Cake

Hello again-

I adapted an old favorite of my Nana's (see right - she's so pretty!!) for a Valentine treat.  This is the easiest cake going.  Pictures will be posted soon.

Into an ungreased 9x9 cake pan, combine:
1 1/2 C flour
3/4 C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp cocoa powder

Dig three holes into the dry mixture and add:
1st hole - 5 tbsp melted Earth Balance or other vegan margarine
2nd hole - 1 tbsp vanilla extract
3rd hole - 1 tbsp white vinegar

Pour one cup lukewarm water over ingredients (I used lukewarm coffee for a mocha flavour)
and mix well.  Bake in 375 F oven for 25-30 minutes.  Any glaze will do, but I just sprinkled some icing sugar for garnish and served with fresh fruit.  Very tasty and extra easy.  Enjoy!
