This delicious vanilla layer cake is famous for being easy to make during the Great Depression when ingredients like dairy products and eggs were scarce. Now this cake recipe is one of our favorites because of how easy on your wallet it is! It's also a classic recipe that will never go out of style. Whether you remember this recipe as a delicious way to eat cake in hard times or are just having your first slice, this is one recipe that is sure to be in your family for generations. We like to make this cake around Mother's Day and Easter, but it's delicious all year round!

Treats that are easy on the wallet are always a good idea! I think it is also innovative when you look at cakes like these where improvisations have been made due to lack of ingredients. Im going to try it but have no vinegar. When I read the comments on Aleas blog she does say that you can use apple cider vinegar but it may alter the flavor. I will still try that as I have some.
