Chocolate Banana Crazy Cake (No Butter, Eggs, Milk or Mess) ~ Inspired by the Depression Era Recipe (aka Wacky Cake) w/ GF Option

“But oh, Marilla, will you let me make a cake for the occasion?
I’d love to do something for Mrs. Allan,
and you know I can make a pretty good cake by this time.”
~ L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Welcome to the third edition in our Depression-Era inspired crazy cake series! This recipe is an ode to frugal, "use it up" and from the pantry baking.

If so, you will find the remainder of our recipe here at our guest post on Raising Homemakers (P.S. I would love for you to leave a little note there to let me know you "dropped by"!).

  2. This recipe looks and sounds delicious, JES, as do the others in this series. I plan on trying these when we gather together with our children and grandchildren. as they can feed a lot. Otherwise I could try and half the recipe for just my dh and me.😊 I wonder if the recipes in this series could be used for cupcakes instead of sheet cake.? I may try that, too. Enjoy your visiting! ~ Lynne
