Lemon cake

1 large lemon (juice and rind - though more is better I say) 1 & 1/2 cups all purpose flour 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda 6 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 teaspoon vinegar 1 teaspoon vanilla Water


Put flour, sugar and baking soda into a mixing bowl. Mix them together fairly well. Grate all your lemon rind into a measuring cup. Then, take your already sorely abused lemon, cut it in half and squeeze the juice from both halves into your measuring cup. Next add water to your rind and lemon juice until you have filled one cup. Pour your lemon juice mixture into your bowl of dry ingredients. Add oil. Add vanilla. Add vinegar. Mix well. Mixture will foam. Pour into an ungreased 8 inch cake pan. Bake 25 minutes, or until cake bounces back a bit when you touch its centre. Next comes icing time followed by eating time.
