Crazy Cake Recipe

My grandmother often made this moist, chocolate cake for
dessert. During the Depression when milk and eggs were in short supply it was a
popular cake to bake.  The other day I
couldn’t find milk at two grocery stores and thought of my grandma and her recipe.  I came right home and gathered the necessary
ingredients to make this easy cake with my granddaughter’s help.  Baking together is a very satisfying and fun
activity.  I hope you enjoy this recipe
as much as my family does!

Baked with love, Janice Downing

Sift dry ingredients into a 9 x 9 baking pan. 
Then add to the dry ingredients (in the baking pan)
