Sift the flour, sugar, salt, and cocoa into a 9 x 13-inch ungreased baking pan. Spread the mixture evenly in the pan, and create three small "wells" in the mixture. Into the first, pour the oil; into the second, pour the vinegar; and into the third, pour the vanilla. Pour the cold water over the entire cake and mix well with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees F (180 C) for 40 minutes. Cool on rack, then frost the cake as desired.
Makes 9 servings.
