Chocolate Crazy Cake is as easy as a box mix, but tastes so much better! This recipe doesn’t use butter or eggs so it’s budget friendly too!
What could be better than a fluffy, moist, rich chocolate cake with creamy chocolate frosting and a cherry on top? Not much, that’s for sure! This cake is a breeze to make – as fast as a cake mix, and it tastes incredible!
So, this cake has been around since the depression. It’s sometimes called depression cake or wacky cake. You mix everything in the pan you bake it in, and you don’t need any eggs or butter! It’s so delicious that you honestly don’t need frosting. You could just dust it with powdered sugar and it would be just lovely.
The thing is though, I pretty much only eat cake for the frosting. I mean, I like cake but I love frosting 🙂
So I made a chocolate buttercream to top off this cake, which as the name suggests, involves butter. So it butter is something you’re trying to avoid, then by all means, ditch the frosting. The cake is so moist and tender, and perfect with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. Enjoy!
Should you choose to frost this cake, I suggest this recipe! It’s the best!
