Wacky is good…..everyone likes a little wacky. Especially when it’s in the form of cake!! Wacky Cake!! Otherwise known as Crazy Cake, Depression Cake. It’s my favorite chocolate cake ever. This is the most moist cake you will ever eat, seriously. I grew up on this cake. My mom made it all the time. It’s known as the Depression cake because back during the depression, ingredients were scarce…especially eggs. So the story goes anyway. Whatever! All that matters is that it is a great cake, easy mix in the baking pan….dairy free…egg free cake. Most people don’t even frost it. I don’t. It’s so moist that when you cut a piece and pick it up with your fingers, it’s all gooey and crumbs cling to your fingers. Yup, Yup……I can’t say enough about it….obviously. I’m rambling. I gave a couple slices to some coworkers at the office this morning and I heard some moaning going on. They love it too!!! So super simple. Make it today! OH, I made the non chocolate version the otber night and that was good too. 

Wacky Cake 

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa powder
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350. In a square 8×8 baking dish, put all the dry ingredients. Add the oil, vinegar and the water. Stir it up, but don’t over mix. Everyone over mixes…….GEESH. don’t do it.
Bake for approx. 25 minutes or until you poke a toothpick in it and it comes out clean. Let it cool completely.

How easy is that!
