When I mentioned making this cake a few posts ago, I couldn’t believe that I didn’t already have the recipe posted — it’s so easy and fast. It’s a good one for when you want something easy in a hurry. And simple ingredients that you probably always have on hand (or should).
And it’s chocolate . . . what more could you want?
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup cold water
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup Miracle Whip
Mix all dry ingredients, then add water and vanilla; mix well.
Add Miracle Whip and beat.
Pour into a greased 9″ x9″ baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
I don’t even make frosting for this cake. It’s best with either ice cream or whipped cream on top!
You can also use mayonnaise instead of Miracle Whip, whichever you happen to have on hand.
And it’ll truly be a miracle if it lasts very long — even with just the two of us around here, it disappears pretty fast. And I’m not too proud to admit that I’ve eaten it for breakfast occasionally!
