    1 1/2  cups          Flour; Unbleached -- Sifted
    1      cup           Sugar
    3      tablespoons   Cocoa -- Baking
    1      teaspoon      Baking Soda
      1/2  teaspoon      Salt
    1      teaspoon      Vanilla Extract
    1      tablespoon    Vinegar
    5      tablespoons   Butter Or Regular Margarine
    1      cup           Water
                         -----MOCHA CHOCOLATE FROSTING-----
    1 3/4  cups          Confectioners' Sugar
    3      tablespoons   Cocoa -- Baking
    3      tablespoons   Butter Or Regular Margarine
    3      tablespoons   Coffee; Brewed -- Hot
      1/2  teaspoon      Vanilla Extract
 
 Sift the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt together into a mixing bowl.
Make 3 wells in the dry ingredients. Pour vanilla into 1 well; vinegar into 1
well and melted butter into the third. Pour water over all. Beat with a wooden
spoon until well blended. Pour batter into a greased 9 square baking pan. Bake
in a preheated 350~ oven for 25 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pan on
rack. Frost with Mocha Chocolate Frosting. Cut into squares.
 MOCHA CHOCOLATE FROSTING: Combine confectioners' sugar, cocoa, softened butter,
coffee, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat, with an electric mixer set at medium
speed, until smooth.
 NOTE; This recipe came from a very old church cookbook that the woman found and
is typical of many of the recipes of the 1800’s. The vinegar was used to keep the
cake from spoiling. Try this and I think that you will like it.
