1 cup warm water
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups cake flour
Preheat oven to 375F.
In a large bowl mix the Miracle Whip & water. Beat until light. Add the remaining ingredients, in order, one at a time. Stir well after each addition.

Bake for 32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
