Chocolate cake recipe is great!

Annie Deighnaugh

I read about the "depression" chocolate cake and decided to try it. It's delish. It is chocolate-y and moist. The frosting is good too. And it's a single layer so it doesn't make too much. Best of all, it uses ingredients you probably already have at home. Good if you've got a vegan to serve too.

I know that one as 'mudpie' cake and I used to make it a lot. It is very good, isn't it?

Thanks for posting that recipe! I used to make a no eggs type cake years ago, but lost the recipe. It was super moist and delicious.

Very similar to the recipe I've made for years called Wacky Cake.

Made early this morning. it’s great when you have only two people. But , one of those folks does quite a bit of taste testing. I do love chocolate.

One of my mom's recipes--Wacky Cake at our house, too. We always mixed it in the pan per the directions in a lot of recipes for this cake. No need to mess up a bowl.

Also, we always dusted it with a bit of powdered sugar or left it naked...I don't recall ever having it (or making it) with icing.
