Wacky Cake, Member debratallent

My grandmother made this cake, she called it Wacky Cake. it is so moist, easy to stir up and eat. No eggs or milk, no problem! I still enjoy baking it today I loved to watch Grandma cook, she never measured anything, she just knew. I would love to have more recipes from depression era.
