Making a cake for a friend's birthday today. This was my grandmother’s recipe. I made it when he visited once before and he said it reminded him of something his mother would make so that's why I chose it. It's almost as simple as buying a Freihoffer's (and about as easy as a cake mix) plus nearly everyone has these ingredients on hand.

Frying Pan Cake

Flour 1 3/4 cup
Baking Powder 1 tablespoon
Baking Soda 1 teaspoon
Cocoa 6 tablespoons
Sugar 1 cup
Oil 1/4 cup
Vinegar 1 tablespoon
Water 1 cup

Sift together dry ingredients into ungreased pan. Make three wells in the mixture -- put oil in first, vinegar in second, finally water in third. Mix. Bake 25 minutes at 375 degrees.

Confectioner’s Sugar, sifted 1 1/2 cups
Butter 2 tablespoons
Coffee, brewed 2 tablespoons

Cream together sugar and butter; add coffee; stir until smooth
