After we ran our feature on Those Crazy Cakes we received these wonderful recipes for more great cakes. I included two variations of the "Wacky Cake" since they are different in size. Thanks everyone, and keep on sending them!

Wacky Cake Recipes

Kay of Kay's Country Kitchen sent her Mom's recipe for Wacky Cake and told us "There are a few differences in the one on the site and the one my mom used. The one she used does not requires eggs, which makes it great for a budget, or if you dont have any, so I decided to send it to you anyway. It also takes less time to bake. Feel free to use it if you want. "

Darla sent us her version too:

Here's our family version of Wacky Cake.... it is different than the one posted in that it only makes an 8X8 inch cake and contains NO egg.... this is good for people who have to restrict eggs due to allergy etc. Anyhow we've been making this since the early 50's.

Wacky Cake

1 1/2 c Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

1 tsp Vanilla

1 c Sugar

1 tsp Vinegar

3 tbl Cocoa

5 tbl Vegetable Oil

1 tsp Baking Soda

1 c Cold Water

1/2 tsp Salt

Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt. Make three wells in the flour mixture. In one put vanilla; in another the vinegar, and in the third the oil. Pour 1 c cold water over all and stir. No need to beat. Pour into 8 x 8-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F oven until it springs back.
