A typical day on an Amish farm includes waking up before the break of dawn, tending to the animals, making breakfast, and looking after little ones.
A woman’s role in an Amish family is usually taking care of meal prep and household duties. A lot of Amish ladies will make cakes, cookies, and pies to sell in their family store. This Lazy Woman cake is a staple on many Amish farms because it is super easy to make and requires minimal ingredients.

3 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Morton salt
5 Tbsp Toll House cocoa
2 heaping teaspoons baking soda
1 scant cup cooking oil
1 Tbsp McCormick vanilla
2 Tbsp Heinz vinegar
2 cups cold water
