Chocolate Depression Cake


You might hear this chocolate depression cake recipe referred to as chocolate wacky crazy cake or chocolate crazy cake. that doesn't include any dairy products, eggs, or butter, like chocolate surprise cake. That seems really insane and bizarre, which is rather shocking! Baking soda and vinegar are used to make the cake rise instead of eggs.

Chocolate Depression Cake Not to be confused with depression as in "this cake will cure your depression." 😅 Depression as in The Great Depression.This Chocolate Depression Cake (also called Crazy Cake or Wacky Cake) was also born during the Great Depression, when many of us were dealing with ingredient shortages, so I figured it would be a good time to share it. There are no eggs, milk, or butter used in the making of this one-of-a-kind chocolate cake. Do you really want me to bake a cake without butter? Very "wacky," I'll admit. 

The cake's ingredients are:

1 and a half cups of ordinary flour

3/4 cup of sugar

1/4 cup of chocolate powder, unsweetened

One teaspoon of baking soda and half a teaspoon of salt

1/8 teaspoon of vanillin

A teaspoon of white vinegar.

one-third cup of olive oil

1.5 cups of water

Regarding the icing:

Butter, 2 tablespoons

1/4 cup of chocolate powder, unsweetened

measure one cup of powdered sugar

1/3 cup milk (or heavy cream)

1 and 1/4 teaspoons of vanilla essence

Chocolate Depression Cake Recipe Instructions

Put all of the dry ingredients into a big bowl and stir in the sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda.

Mix the oil, vinegar, water, and vanilla in a separate basin. When the dry ingredients are mixed with the wet, stir until smooth and no lumps are visible.

Moisten an 8×8 square pan and transfer batter into it.

Wait 30–35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, after preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

Before icing, make sure cake is totally cooled.

Recipe for Frosting

Remove butter from the heat and melt it in a small saucepan (or a microwave-safe dish). Add the cocoa powder and stir until a thick paste forms.

The chocolate mixture should be transferred to a medium-sized mixing basin. Mix in the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract while the mixer is set at low speed.

The frosting should be smooth and creamy, so when the ingredients are mixed, the mixer should be turned to medium-high speed and beat for approximately 5 minutes. Pour over the cake after it has cooled.
