Crazy Chocolate Cake

i made this for dessert for family movie night on friday. for dinner we had our usual french bread pizza and we watched Freaky Friday. this is a recipe that my grandmother always makes. she usually ices it with a simple chocolate icing made from melted butter, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. it is really great when iced and eaten right out of the oven. i was out of powdered sugar so i made a chocolate sauce from melted dark chocolate, a little milk and a little cocoa powder. you could also serve it with just a little powdered sugar sprinkled over the top. here's the recipe...

...recipe from my grandmother
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk

Sift the dry ingredints into an 8 x 8 inch pan. Make three wells and put oil, vinegar, and vanilla into each well and then pour milk over all of it. Mix. Bake @ 350 for 30 minutes or @325 for 40-45 minutes.
