    My question is this.Is it necessary too add the vinegar?Why I am asking you like I am.I can't stand the smell of it.Vinegar makes me sick.Sence Sandy has too be on her breathing machine when she needs to use it and that she uses the vinegar when I am not here.When Sandy uses the vinegar I am at work.

    We made something similar in junior high home ec, it was also called whacky cake, and had similar ingredients. Only difference was, you used a spoon to put indentations in the dry ingredients, and put one wet ingredient into each one, and didn't mix it up. I remember it was great! Will try yours as well! It's sure to bring back memories of many years ago! Thanks for sharing!

    Looks real yummy but too bad I'm on a diet! I usually never eat sweets but one time i had a cake with vinegar in it and it was awesome. Was it vinegar cake? That somehow rings a bell.
