    *Whole Wheat Flour, 1.0 cup

Tips

Once you put in the vinegar, everything else must happen as fast as possible. Make sure the oven is ready and the dry ingredients are mixed and ready to go.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 360 degrees if you have a slow oven.
Lightly oil a bundt or regular 9X13 cake pan.

In a mesh strainer, add sift all dry ingredients into large bowl. Whisk to mix.

In small bowl, add all wet ingredients except for vinegar. Whisk to mix well. Add vinegar and whisk in quickly. Pour mixture into dry ingredients and mix quickly. The leavening happens as soon as as the baking soda [base] meets the vinegar [acid]. Mix just until combined and pour batter into pan.
Tap pan a couple of times to work out large bubbles and quickly put into the oven.

Bake for 20 minutes, then turn cake 180 degrees to ensure even baking. Bake for another 15-20 minutes.

Cake is done when toothpick comes out clean.
