Eggless, Milkless and Butterless Cake

Hello,
I loved seeing this old family recipe on the newsletter . I just made it this week too..

We call it War Cake, because it came about due to the shortages during WW1, So it's an OLD recipe :_)

Hi, your recipe is a little different from the way my mother made the cake which we used to call 'soggy cake' because it was so moist. I'm 69 and my mother made this cake long before I was born mainly because of shortages of eggs, butter and milk. The one thing she always added that you don't show was 1/4 cup of cocoa powder so we would have chocolate cake. (09/05/2004)
