I grew up with Wacky Cake being a staple in my home especially when the chickens were not producing eggs. It has no eggs and no butter and no milk and contains one ingredient you don’t normally see in cake recipes — that is why it’s called Wacky. But despite its odd list of ingredients is a super moist and delicious chocolate cake.
