  1. + Directions : Sift the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa into an ungreased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. With a fork, lightly stir to evenly mix the ingredients. Add the oil, vanilla, and vinegar. Pour the water over the entire ingredients. Mix with a fork until smooth, making sure to mix in any batter that sticks in the corners. Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and immediately top with the icing while the cake is still in the pan. To make the icing: Melt the butter, add the milk and cocoa and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and gradually add the confectioners' sugar by sifting it into the mixture (without sifting, the icing will be lumpy). Stir until the icing is smooth. Pour the smooth icing and let it set until the icing slightly hardens. Makes 10 servings.
