When All Else Fails, Chocolate

A few hours and a slice of cake later, and wouldn't you know it?  Everything looks much better than it did last post.  For everyone out there fighting their own battles, I offer you salvation in a 9x13....  Vegan Chocolate Cake!

(Don't be scared off - the cake is very moist and very chocolaty, and involves no strange, hard-to-find ingredients.)

Pre-heat oven to 350.  In a large bowl combine:
3 Cups flour
1/2 Cup cocoa
2 Cups sugar
1 TBS baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Dump all dry ingredients into an UN-greased 9x13 pan.  Make 3 holes in the mixture and pour into them:
3/4 Cup cooking oil
1/2 TBS vanilla
1 TBS vinegar

Pour 2 Cups water over the top of everything.  Mix it all very well, until everything is totally combined.  

Bake 30-40 minutes

For the brave, you can do all the mixing right in the 9x13.  For the hard-core, add 1/2-1 cup of chocolate chips.  And for the artistically inclined, break out the jimmies and go stark-raving-mad.  (Bonus points if you can frost and endangered species and/or a south-Asian country onto the cake!)
