Cockeyed Cake

Cockeyed Cake created by Tiggrr

This is an old recipe that I made in our Home Studies class in school. It has the strangest ingredients but is a quick and easy chocolate fudge snack cake. The kids will love it and so will you.

    I am allergic to chocolate now, so was afraid I'd never be able to eat this again. It took me years before I tried it with Carob. Guess what? It was delicious! Was sorry I waited so long, but it is great. It would be great as gingerbread cake also! Kaydee.

    I got this recipe from a friend a few years ago. She was allergic to eggs. A great recipe when you don't have a single egg in the house, but you need something for lunch boxes or a morning tea. Thanks for posting! I should mention these make great cupcakes and cook in 15-18 minutes.

    This cake is exceptionally delicious. I do add more cocoa to the recipe using rounded tablespoons of cocoa instead of leveling them I often make it into cupcakes and top with a simple chocolate frosting. For vegan cupcakes I substitute rice milk for the dairy milk in the frosting also use margarine instead of butter.<br/><br/>My grown children made cockeyed cakes when they were children and now my 8 year old grandson wants to make this cake. It is probably our most loved family recipe.
