Crazy Chocolate Cake

Think of today as RECIPE WEDNESDAY! This one is so good and so easy, you won't believe it. Everytime I serve it, people ask for the recipe. You can double the cake and frosting for 9 x 13 pan. The cake is not too sweet and the frosting is amazing.
1 and 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
1 batch Thick Chocolate Frosting (recipe below) 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 baking dish.
Combine flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda, and salt in pan and stir.
Create 2 small and 1 large depression in the surface of dry ingredients. Pour vanilla and vinegar into a small depression and vegetable oil into the large. Pour water over surface and stir until batter forms. 
Bake for 35 minutes.
• 2 and ½ cups powdered sugar
• 2 tablespoons butter, softened
• 1 and ½ tablespoons cocoa
• 2 tablespoons heavy cream
• A dash of salt
1. Cream together butter and heavy cream.
2. Add powdered sugar, cocoa, and a dash of salt. Continue to mix for 1-2 minutes.
If frosting is too thick, add a couple of drops of the heavy cream.
