Chocolate Wacky Cake is so named because it doesn't use eggs. Yep, you read that correctly. This cake originated during the Great Depression, when eggs were harder to acquire. Don't be sad over this egg absence, though. The cake is delicious. It's also easy to make. After you whisk the dry ingredients together, you can mix everything in the cake pan. That means there is one less bowl to clean. Dust with a little powdered sugar before serving.

Chocolate Wacky Cake Recipe

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. In an 8-inch square baking pan, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and cocoa.

  3. Use a spoon to make three wells in the dry ingredients, one large well and two smaller wells. Pour the oil into the largest well, the vinegar into one of the smaller wells, and the vanilla into the last well. Pour the cold water over the top of everything and stir it all together with a fork.

  4. Immediately transfer pan to the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

  5. Remove cake to a wire rack to cool. When cooled, cut into squares and sift powdered sugar over the top.
