This cake has always been a family favorite. We called it Wacky Cake. It's good with white icing and for a real treat peanut butter icing.
I made this cake this afternoon. First, real easy and quick to make. In 20 mins, cake was baking and dishes were washed. I added 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips to the batter. The cake came out perfect. Frosted it with chocolate fudge icing. A big success. This is a keeper and I will certainly make it again.
I made this twice, once as a test and the 2nd for my son's birthday, who has allergies. It is a very dense cake. When I replaced oil with applesauce, we liked the cake much better. Thanks for sharing!
