Crazy Cake Revised

Back in April my sister issued a challenge - remake Crazy Cake, one of our favorite desserts from childhood, but healthier.  Here it is!  I was actually surprised by how easy it was.  It's a little gooey on the bottom, but in a oh-so-yummy chocolatey way.  Enjoy!

Crazy Cake Revised
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup cold water
1/2 tsp salt
6 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1 Tbsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla

Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt into an ungreased 8x8 pan.  Make 3 holes in dry ingredients and put in each hole the applesauce, vinegar, and vanilla.  Pour over this the water.  Mix with fork but do not beat.  Bake 25 to 35 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  Let the cake cool and serve it dusted with powdered sugar.
