    Real food 4 real people

    List of Ingredients

    2 cups Flour
    2/3 cup Cocoa Powder
    3/4 teaspoon Salt
    1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
    1 1/3 cups Sugar
    Wet ingredients to add later:
    3/4 cup Vegetable Oil
    2 teaspoons Vinegar
    1 teaspoon Vanilla
    2 cups Water


    In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, cocoa powder and baking powder. Layer
    ingredients in jar in order given in a 1 quart canning jar. It is helpful
    to tap jar lightly on a padded surface (towel on counter) as you layer
    ingredients to make all ingredients fit neatly. Use scissors to cut a
    9-inch circle from fabric of your choice. Center fabric circle over lid and
    secure with a rubber band. Tie on a raffia or ribbon bow to cover the
    rubber band. Attach a card with the following directions:

    Crazy Cake

    This is a crazy cake because you mix the cake all together in the pan that
    you bake it in. Pour contents of jar into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan, then
    add the following ingredients:

    3/4 cup Vegetable Oil
    2 tsp. Vinegar
    1 tsp. Vanilla
    2 cups Water

    Stir cake ingredients together using a wire whisk or fork, making certain
    that all ingredients are completely mixed together. Bake at 350 degrees F
    for 35 minutes. Frost as desired, or serve sprinkled with powdered sugar,
    with fresh fruit on the side.
