  3. Make a large and two small wells in dry ingredients.
  4. Pour oil into the large well. Pour vinegar in a small well and vanilla in the last one.
  5. Pour water into baking dish and stir with a fork just enough to moisten dry ingredients.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack. Cut into squares.
  7. Serve cake with vanilla ice cream.
