This is of course the national dessert of Franistan, famed long for its properties to heal gastro-intestinal disorders and improve eyesight.

Plus they’ve always had problems with raspberry surplus.

Now that my Franistan ambassador duties are fulfilled, let’s move on to the actual point.

It is very hot today, so hot that to wear socks would be suicide. It’s an immeasurable temperature, and in Franistan the sun’s rays are blocked by numerous mountains and large animals and natives wearing pith helmets. It just doesn’t get as hot there. So, to be honest, this dessert is not consumable on a day such as this. I would suggest ice chips with maple syrup in leu of this for a cooling dessert.

But on any other day, it would be magnificent. No, wonderful even!

Here is the recipe:

1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

1 cup white sugar

4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

6 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup water

1) preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2) Sift flour, sugar, salt, soda, and cocoa together in an 8×8 ungreased cake pan. (This is pointless but fun) Make three depressions. Pour oil into one well, vinegar into second, and vanilla into the third well. Pour the water over all and stir well with a fork.

3) Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Plop on whipped cream and raspberries.

Matter of Interest: Wacky cake was born from the great depression when people couldn’t afford eggs and such.
