And while the kids are in the kitchen...'s another recipe they can try. It's an "oldie"! My version dates back to a book from the mid-seventies. I dug it up to pass along to a friend who had to plan a vegan meal this weekend. With no eggs and no milk, this recipe fit the bill.

Before the kids whip up the recipe, let them experiment first by adding a liquid (vinegar) to a solid (baking soda). All those bubbles are what make this recipe turn into a cake!

1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa

Mix thoroughly in an 8 x 8 or a 7 x 11 cake pan.

1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Add and stir in well.

5 Tbsp. oil
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla

Make three holes in mixture. Pour oil in one, vinegar in another and vanilla in the third hole.

1 cup cold water

Pour over all ingredients in cake pan. Beat until smooth. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes. Enjoy!
