Roots of Wacky Cake
Delicious wacky cake (or “crazy cake”) has an attractive history. Wacky or Crazy Cake was the brainchild of a time of rations during World War II. The recipe won’t need the main ingredients in almost every cake, —such as eggs, milk, or butter. So this makes it a very yummy alternative flavor for vegans and people with allergies. It is also quite mess-free, needing no mixers or bowls, which is always a good idea for an easy dessert!

Instructions: How to Cook Delicious Wacky Cake?
1- Get your baking tin of choice and without greasing it beforehand, put all the dry ingredients inside (flour, sugar, cacao, baking powder, and salt) and give it a good stir with a fork until it is mixed well.
2- Make three wells in the dry mixture and in each well, put equal parts of the vinegar, oil, and vanilla extract.
3- Pour water onto the whole cake and mix it with your trusty fork until there are no lumps, and it is silky smooth.
4- Bake at 170-180 degrees Celsius for about 25-30 minutes. Test with a toothpick and if it comes out clean, the cake is baked through.
5- Once it has cooled off, you can dust it with powdered sugar and enjoy!
*Everyone loves chocolate cake but why stop there? You can make other versions of this cake by leaving out the cacao and adding something else. For example, a lemon Wacky Cake! Skip the cacao and add lemon extract and zest instead of only vanilla extract.
*You can make it fancier too with some frosting to top it off or just glaze it with some icing. Adding crushed nuts or shredded coconut to the dough gives it a different kind of texture as well. So, don’t be afraid to get creative.
*As this is a mess-free option, it is a nice activity for kids, as well.
