Serves: 12
Total Calories: 322


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups cold brewed coffee or water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Add flour, 1-1/2 cups sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt to an ungreased 13"x9" metal baking pan. Stir with a fork to mix; use a spoon to form 3 wells in flour mixture. Pour oil into one well, vinegar into one well and vanilla into one well. Pour cold coffee or water over all ingredients; stir quickly with fork until well mixed. Do not beat. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle evenly over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, until cake tests done with a toothpick.

Tip: Make a game of table talk! Write fun questions on slips of paper...what kind of animal would you like to be, what’s your favorite time of year, and so on. Pull a different question each night to talk about.
