    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    I found this recipe on the net and what a find it was! This is an excellent cake with all the attributes of a wacky cake plus new attributes of its own. Like all wacky cakes, it can be made in the ungreased pan and has no eggs. It is moist and easy to make, has excellent flavor and it perfect for strawberry (or any berry) shortcake. It takes well to any flavored frosting and even better if the frosting has nuts! It even makes good cupcakes, though I haven't tried this. I've read that this cake is a variation of something called Patrushka Cake. I think you'll love it.

      It's a wacky cake and it is white. Fast and easy. Gives a decent result, not as nice as a white cake from a box, I've never found a from scratch recipe for white cake that does though. This one made a nice base for strawberry shortcake and would be good with sliced peaches too. I thik it is a cake that needs some kind of fruit or something to go with it rather than trying to make it a stand alone cake.

      I made this cake to use as a base for strawberry shortcake. It was easy to make and the batter tasted great. After cooling completely the cake is moist and delicious. I would advise against trying the cake while it is still warm. Right out of the oven it is unpleasantly dense with a chewy crust, but the true texture and flavor appear after it has a chance to rest a bit. Thanks for a great recipe!
