"This cake is make without milk or eggs and is moist, dark and delicious. A brain child of the depression era when ingenious cooks developed a cake that could be made without expensive and scarce ingredients."

Delicious and easy cake! I only make this recipe now- I sometimes omit the cocoa for a plain white cake or add some grated/chopped apples and cinnamon/nutmeg/cloves for an apple spice version. 2 thumbs up!

I'm making this in the form of cupcakes for my daughter's 1st birthday party. She is allergic to milk and eggs. So this is perfect! I did a trial run last night and these taste just like regular cake to me and my husband. Not so with some other recipes I've been trying... The recipe makes about 15 cupcakes. They baked for 25 min at 375. Came out just perfect. I used Pillsbury's cream cheese icing to frost them. It's milk and egg free too. Who would have thought? Thanks so much for this recipe. I'm sure it will be a hit this weekend!!! :)

Oh my goodness!! This recipe is amazing. I couldn't find my wacky cake recipe, so I went online to see what I could find. BETTER then the recipe I used to use. This is definately a keeper. MANY MANY comliments. Made this cake for my mom's birthday. You have to make this cake with an almond extract icing. Icing sugar, margerine, a little milk and some almond extract. Make the icing first, then add a little almond extract at a time until desired taste is reached. WOW!
