  • ½ cup cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • cup vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups water

  • cup white sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Stir flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a 8x12-inch baking pan. Make 3 wells in the mixture. Pour oil, vinegar, and vanilla extract each into their own well. Pour water into the pan. Stir batter with a fork until well combined.
