Have you ever heard of a “crazy cake” or a “wacky cake” or a “depression cake?” During the Great Depression, eggs, butter, and some other common cake ingredients were in rare supply and were rather expensive. Many people began to improvise, so today we have these amazing recipes that do not require eggs or dairy products. This vanilla crazy cake is so rich and moist and delicious that you won’t even miss the eggs and butter. Now, I do need to add that the frosting recipe I used called for butter, which I gladly used; however, if you have a dairy allergy, use a butter substitute in the frosting and enjoy!
