This is my mom's recipe for "Panhandy Pudding"-- a moist chocolate snack cake. This is what I make when a bad chocolate craving hits-- I usually have everything I need on hand.

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 TBSP cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 TBSP veg. oil
1 TBSP vinegar
1 TBSP vanilla
1 cup cold water
powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350. Spray a 9x9 (or 8x8) pan with non-stick cooking spray. Sift dry ingredients into mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and blend with hand mixer. Pour into pan and bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle powdered sugar over top while still warm.
