This easy chocolate cake is a wacky cake because it's made without eggs. It's almost too easy to be true! Just briefly mix the ingredients with a spoon, pour the batter into the pan, and bake!

Spread a chocolate or vanilla frosting over the cake and sprinkle it with pecans, if desired, or sift powdered sugar over the cooled cake.

This is an 8-inch cake, the perfect size for most families.

  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
