    strider's Note:

    Traditionally Wacky Cake is chocolate but my Mom needed a white cake when I was young so she made a small change to the recipe by adding custard powder instead of cocoa. My wife keeps up the tradition (wacky cakes are the only cakes we make) and chooses the color of cake depending on the occasion. It is a great cake on a summer afternoon topped with whipped cream and your favourite fresh fruit.

      Dense texture, not a bad taste though. Wasn't what I was looking for.

      This was simple to make, however it has a dense texture and a strong aftertaste. Sorry.

      This is a delicious cake and so easy to make. When making it one day, we were out of vinegar so used lemon juice. Worked wonderfully. I agree that it is especially good with whipped cream and fresh fruit. Thanks from SASKATOON!
