Depression Era Chocolate Cake
When I was young, my mother used to bake "Depression Chocolate Cake". Mom remembers making it, but not the amounts or the exact ingredients. It was my Grandmas recipe and didn't have any eggs or butter. Instead it used vinegar and baking soda to rise. I think the ingredients were baking soda, vinegar, flour, cocoa, salt and oil. It may have originally been from the "Great Canadian Cookbook". (I loved that book, it gave instructions on how to butcher a cow or chicken and then cook it. From farmyard to the table ;)).
But back to cake..anyone have this recipe? I remember the cake being chocolaty and moist and very delicious! A great cake for hard times.:choco:
