A cake recipe designed with kids in mind.

This recipe contest has me thinking about old favorites. When I was in high school my family got ahold of a recipe called Wacky Cake. I've never heard of it anywhere else, but lo and behold, it's online. Of course. Here's the recipe, the ingredients are decidely uncake-like, but it makes a fair cake:

Travel Food Recipes
Quick, easy, and just perfect! Eat it the first or second day.

1-1/2 cups flour 1 cup sugar 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp soda 3 tbsp cocoa 6 tbsp vegetable oil (not olive oil) 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tsp vanilla 1 cup cold water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift all dry ingredients into an ungreased 9x9 inch cake pan. Make a well in the center and pour the oil, vinegar, vanilla and cold water into it. The combination will start to bubble. Mix well with a fork until smooth. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool and frost with chocolate frosting.


3 tablespoons cocoa 1 cup powdered sugar 2 tablespoons soft butter 2 tablespoons hot coffee

Sift cocoa and sugar together into bowl. Add butter. Add hot coffee and beat until thick and smooth.

Hi littlek. I remember this recipe from 9th grade Home Economics class (quite a long time ago).
I remember how amazed I was at how easy it was to make a home made cake. I used to make Wacky Cake for my young brothers. Seeing the recipe here brought back some of those memories.

Apparantly this recipe has been around since the depression, that is true if the internet is to be trusted.
