Chocolate Wacky Cake with Buttercream Frosting

Jump to recipe

A few months ago I was craving chocolate cake, but lacked most of the necessary ingredients. My mom then suggested this cake, which has no milk, butter, or eggs. All the ingredients are kitchen staples (at least in my kitchen), and the cake is so easy you make mix it directly in the pan! This cake, named for my grandma’s friend who originally shared the recipe, is the first cake my mom ever made!

I topped my cake with my simple, homemade buttercream frosting. It’s easy to throw together, but if you wish, the cake is also good with canned frosting as well!
