Madcap Cake Recipe
If you make this Madcap Cake recipe, please share your photos and comments below!
- 1½ cups sifted flour
- 3 tablespoons dry breakfast cocoa (not instant)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup canned applesauce
- Sift first five ingredients into 8-inch square cake pan.
- Make 3 depressions in the dry ingredients.
- Pour vinegar into one, vanilla into the second, and oil into the third.
- Spoon applesauce over all. Mix well until smooth.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
- When cool, cut in squares; top with whipped cream.
For an extra little taste treat, try flavoring the whipped cream with a little dry instant coffee before popping a dollop on top of the cake. It's a nice flavor combination.
