Sift dry ingredients. Add wet and mix with a spoon until all dry ingredients are moistened (do not over mix). Pour in an ungreased cake pan (9x12).


Bake at 350º F until cake pulls away from sides of pan, 35 - 40 minutes, or use the toothpick test.


What makes it goofy? Where are the eggs and milk? This is the original goofy cake recipe, sort of the traditional Midwestern weak coffee version.
