Into-one hole put the vinegar,: another the vanilla and into the third hole the oil. SioXvly pour the cold,water over the, whole and stir until ,it has no lumps. Smooth out and 'bake for 35 minutes in a 350-degree oven. To avoid a badly burned tongue, it would be wise to hold off eating for at least two or three minutes after cake emerges from oven.
