Crazy Cake

This recipe also goes by the name of “Wacky Cake”. Research tells us this very moist chocolate cake recipe was developed sometime in the 1940’s and was quite popular due to it not having eggs, butter or milk and mixing it all in the pan. A very moist, easy-to-prepare chocolate cake that goes great with a cold glass of milk!
