Eggless Milkless Butterless Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
This is from the depression era. My Mom used to make it after the depression because her Mom made it for her during the depression. It was originally called "Poor Man's Cake" as no ration coupons were needed to be used (or purchased on the black market) for butter, eggs, or milk. Just be careful not to over bake so that it does not dry out. The original recipe calls for it to be made with bacon drippings. If you have these, it really does make the cake more moist and flavorful; but, I know it's not good for you....My Mom said that my Grandmother kept a jar on the stove for bacon drippings. They wasted nothing in those days...
