  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a baking pan, sift the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Make three holes in the mixture (you can press in a soup ladle and remove). Pour the vinegar in one hole, the vanilla in another and the salad oil in the third. Now pour the water over the entire mixture and mix with a fork just until all the lumps are out.

  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

  4. To decorate: Hold a paper doily over the cake and sift the powdered sugar on it. The sugar that goes through the holes will form a pretty pattern on the cake.
