Scratch Spice cake

I found making this cake to be really easy and satisfying. It's kind of amazing to make a cake with no cake mix. It smells great when cooking and tastes great too. It takes a lot of ingredients but once you have them you can make lots of cakes.

Dry ingredients

1 1/2 cup all-purpouse flour
1       cup sugar
1      teaspoon of baking soda
1      teaspoon cinnamon
1/2   teaspoon ground cloves
1/2   teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2   teaspoon ground allspice
1/2   teaspoon salt
1/2   cup of chopped walnuts (optional - I never tried this)

Wet ingredients

6 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Put all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well. Add the wet ingredients and stir until smooth. Pour into an 8x8 inch well greased (and, what the heck, floured) baking pan. Bake 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

It really doesn't need frosting but some white frosting will help keep the cake fresh.
