Mustang Chocolate Cake

" Like the mustangs that roam the West, no one really knows where this cake came from. And, like those hardy horses, this recipe is a mixture of odd things that all add up to something wonderful." - The Cowgirl's Cookbook

What could be better than chocolate and wild horses? This cake. I don't even like chocolate cake, and I absolutely loved this cake. It's not too rich, not too dense, but just rich enough, and just full enough of flavor that it leaves your mouth watering for more! Ok, enough droolin, here's the recipe in my own rendition...
1 1/2 cups of flour
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cooking oil 
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup cold coffee, strong! (This, along with the vinegar, is the key..I think :)
1/2 cup cold water 
Preheat to 350 degress.
Sift the flour, cocoa , baking soda, sugar and salt into a 9x9 cake pan.
Then, using your finger, make 3 wells in the dry mixture about the size of a golf ball. Pour in to one the oil, the other the vanilla and the last one, the vinegar. Then, pour the cold coffee and water over the whole thing and whisk it all together with a fork. That's it!
Bake for about 30 minutes...
