|Recipe name||Wacky Cake|
|Number of servings||4+|
|Time required||35 minutes|
|Ingredients||1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour|
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon vinegar
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup cold water
|Directions||Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt. Add the liquid: vanilla, vinegar, and the oil. Pour the cold water over the mixture and stir until moistened.|
Pour into 8 x 8-inch pan. Bake at 350°F. oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until it springs back when touched lightly.
|Notes||This cake is 'wacky' because it doesn't use any eggs. Apparently this was a good wartime recipe when eggs and fat was hard to come by. It's surprisingly tasty and a good dessert when you only have the bare essentials in the kitchen.|
I used a 7" round spring form pan and it was fine. I should have run a knife around the edges before releasing it.
Peanut Butter Frosting pairs well with this cake.
This cake will fail the knife test - I baked it for almost 45 minutes the first try because of that. It turned out fine.
