How to Make a Wacky Cake

Wacky Cake is one of most popular Chocolate cakes around. The ingredients of the cake are also not different from many other chocolate cakes, the only difference being the bizarre way in which it is made. That is also the reason it is called a Wacky Cake. The cake is prepared and baked in the same pan and has one of the easiest recipes. There are also a minimum number of dishes involved that’s why many prefer it to many other chocolate delicacies.

One of the most surprising things about the Wacky Cake is that no eggs are used in making it which is really difficult to understand as all cakes involve the use of eggs at some stage. Apart from an easy dish to prepare, the cake can be made within an hour which is also a great thing.
