Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1-1/2 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil*
1 cup cold water or brewed coffee
2 tsps pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp vinegar (Yes, vinegar)

Directions:
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375-degrees.
2. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and sugar into an ungreased 8-inch square or 9-inch round baking pan (preferrably non-stick).
3. In a 2-cup measuring cup, measure and mix the oil, water (or coffee), and vanilla. Slowly and gently pour the liquid ingredients into the baking pan and mix the batter with a fork or a small whisk.
4. When the batter is smooth, add the vinegar and stir quickly. There will be pale swirls (and some bubbling) in the batter where the baking soda and vinegar are reacting.
5. Stir just until the vinegar is evenly distributed throughout the batter (the color becomes more consistent throughout).
6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes--testing with a toothpick. Remove to a cooling rack and make frosting.
