The Wacky Cake Was Made Famous During The Great Depression And We Can’t Seem To Get Enough Of It


Brown Eyed Baker

The Great Depression was one of the most difficult seasons in America's history. It was a time unlike any other. Families were poor and the mothers had to get extremely creative with meal preparations in order to make food last as long as possible.

Many creative cooks found ways around their traditional family recipes by replacing some of the pricier ingredients for lesser expensive alternatives. Many of the recipes turned out so well that they have stood the test of time and are still being created to this very day!

This is something so simple yet packs such incredible flavor! It's moist, decadent, and can feed many people on a small budget. It's easy to see why this was a wildly popular dessert.
