Duplicate Cake

This recipe I've had for a long time It was in our local paper.. I wish my camera was working cause I just made it and it came out so good... From our Kitchen to Yours..

     Duplicate Cake
This recipe is from Jan Barrett's mother In-law. She was a very frugal woman who still cooked on a wood stove back in the 1960's, not just because she lived during the Great Depression,but because she had five kids and her husband was the sole bread winner. It is a very mosit chocolate cake. Missing in the recipe are eggs and mild perhaps they were scarce @ the time the recipe was developed...
     2 cups sugars
     3 cups flour
     1 tsp salt
     1/2 cup bakers cocoa
     2 tsp baking soda
     2 Tbsp vinegar
     1 tsp vanilla
     2/3 cup salad oil (vegetable oil)
     2 cups water
Mix all ingredients together by hand till smooth (batter will be thin). Bake in 9x13 greased pan for 35-40 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Top with peanut butter (or any other kind ) frosting or none at all ( some folks have been known to eat it hot right out the oven with butter) and watch it disappear.
