Wacky Cake

So yesterday Jeremy and I got to go and have dinner with my cousin and her family. And Ashley asked me to bring a dessert. I was like yay! ... wait... Ava is allergic to eggs and nuts... what in the world am I going to make? So I got onto Google and typed in Eggless/ Nutless desserts and over and over again "Wacky Cake" came up. So I decided what the hey, I'll try it. The cool thing about this cake is that there are no eggs, no dairy, and no nuts. It was amazing! So moist and chocolatey. So I decided to share the recipe with you.
I found this particular recipe on Savory Sweet Life.

Chocolate Wacky Depression Cake

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa powder
6 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used olive oil instead)
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 cup water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together by hand. Add all the wet ingredients until well combined. Pour into a 8×8 pan which has been prepared with non stick spray.

Bake for 30 until done. Allow to completely cool before serving.

So now I had a chocolate cake. YUMMY! But I thought it was a little plain so I dressed it up a little with an orange glaze/icing. So to make this:

Mix 2 cups of powered sugar with 1tsp orange zest and 2tblsp of orange juice.

So in the other words, we kicked this cake up a notch and it went from yummy to super yummy! Enjoy!!
