I wanted to share this recipe for a chocolate cake they call "Funny Cake". The cake is moist and does not require eggs nor butter. It is perfect for kids. I guess it is funny because it doesn't use a mixing bowl and you play with ingredients.

Here are the instructions:

That's similar to a vegan cake recipe I made one year for my son's birthday party. One of the girls was allergic to eggs, so I wanted there to be something for her. I will say, it was one of the best chocolate cakes I've had. Everyone loved the chocolate vegan cupcakes!

this actually is a very old war time recipe. It was developed when butter eggs ect were rationed.
Someone has written the directions in a cute, kid fashion. It goes by several other names, the only one I can think of now is "Wacky Cake".

I got this basic recipe from my MIL years ago. She got it from her mother (she was 97 when she passed 4 years ago) and they call it Homestead Chocolate Cake so I imagine it goes back even further than the war rationing days.

Thanks for chiming in everyone! The newspaper did say it was old and that this one was adapted from a 4-H cookbook from 50 years ago! I liked it and was shocked how moist it was. Thanks for your input!
