Desperation Cake

Midnight found me tonight with a sweet tooth to satisfy. I furiously searched the kitchen for something to satisfy my late night craving, but all I found was pretzels. Normally in this situation, my
Mom and I would make a late night run to the store, but with a flat tire and a tired mother, the odds were not in my favor. I resolved to make a homemade dessert. It certainly wouldn’t be as good as a preservative filled, store bought treat, but it would have to do. I looked in the fridge, and much to my dismay, we had no eggs.
My mom head told me to give up, but my stomach said otherwise. So, I was forced to get creative. As a result of my creativity, I now present to you: Hannah’s Homemade Desperation Cake.

3 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons of salt
I tablespoon of baking soda
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of vinegar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups of water

Grease a 9×13 pan or something and combine ingredients in a large bowl.

Stir it until it looks something like this. But try not to have lumpy things like mine does. Then pour it into the pan and pop that sucker in the oven for a good 35 minutes. (*if you prefer more brick-like cake, then 2 hours should do nicely)

While it’s in the oven, make some sort of icing.
Then when its finished, dump icing all up on that cake. I mean lather the thing. And viola! There you have it! Hannah’s Homemade Desperation Cake.
So, you might be wondering how it was. Well, I can honestly say that it was horrendous. It was absolutely the most disgusting cake ever. I tried to like it…I really wanted to like it, but I couldn’t bring myself to. Actually, it wasn’t THAT bad. If you like grainy, thick, mushy cakes, this one’s for you!
After three bites of this atrocious cake, I can honestly say my sweet tooth was alleviated, and I don’t desire to eat cake for a very, very long time.
