This recipe for Wacky Cake is a sponsored post, all opinions are mine.
Wacky Cake, or sometimes called Depression Cake, is a cake made without eggs or milk or butter. It was called wacky because who would think you could make a cake without those essential ingredients? When you lived through the Great Depression you figured out how to make a lot of things without important ingredients, you just had to. I enjoy making Wacky Cakes because personally I don’t really care for the taste of eggs in cake. Plus Wacky Cake is the perfect dessert for vegans because it doesn’t have eggs OR dairy. Try a Wacky Cake sometime for a change, you’ll be surprised at how tasty they are.

Like I said above I just don’t like the taste of eggs in cake. Generally I don’t mind eggs too much, deviled or scrambled or whatever but in cake I swear I can taste them. It’s real turn off for me, so I enjoy having a cake that doesn’t have that taste. It means I can enjoy cake without a heavy frosting to cover up that flavor and just enjoy the pure cake awesomeness.
Vegans rejoice! Wacky cake is vegan, no eggs, no milk, no butter. How does that even work? It uses the power of vinegar and baking soda to get it’s lift. And you can use just about any oil in place of the butter as well. I’m pretty sure the original called for lard or oleomargarine but in my recipe I’m using coconut oil. I love coconut oil in the recipe, it’s just the perfect flavor compliment to any cake but any vegetable oil will work.
