  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon Blossom Raspberry Vinegar

 

Directions:

  • Mix all dry ingredients thoroughly and place in an 8 X 8-inch baking pan.
  • Add oil, vinegar, and vanilla in three wells in the dry mix.
  • Pour water over all and mix well with a fork.
