Buckaroo Cake ~ by Sarah

I got this recipe from Aunt Cheryl, but I have seen very similar recipes for this cake that go by the names "Crazy Cake" and "What Cake".  I don't know what's "crazy" about it--maybe the fact that it doesn't have any eggs?

The recipe for the frosting came from

3 c. flour
2 c. sugar
3 T. cocoa
2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 T. vinegar
Almost 1 c. vegetable oil (see directions)
2 c. water
2 T. vanilla
1 c. walnuts (optional)

Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, soda, and salt in mixing bowl.  In a 1-cup measuring cup, put vinegar, then fill measuring cup to full with salad oil.  Add to flour mixture.  Add water and vanilla.  Mix well.  Stir in walnuts, if desired (they are never desired in my life!).

Pour into a greased 9x13-inch pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.


2 3/4 c. powdered sugar
6 T. cocoa powder
6 T. butter
5 T. evaporated milk
1 t. vanilla

In a medium bowl, sift together powdered sugar and cocoa powder and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter until smooth, then gradually beat in sugar mixture alternately with milk.  Blend in vanilla.  Beat until light and fluffy.
