I'm sure there are a lot of different names for this cake, this is the name we grew up calling it :) This is such an easy and deliciously moist and very chocolatey cake! I used to always ask for it for my birthday. And if you don't have eggs on hand this is the cake to make. I love it with chocolate frosting but you could use any frosting that you love!
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups cold water
