Three Cakes with Unusual Names that are Easy to Make and will Delight the Family

Cooking,Cuisine,Food & Beverages
In the later 1950s and early 1960s, Mom discovered the Wacky Cake. All these years later, my recollections of this cake evoke feelings of fun and sharing, with the delight of having a delicious cake as the outcome. The other cakes came later with similar results.

Three different cakes came into my life through various avenues. The Wacky Cake was introduced to our family by my aunt, and it was a hit ever after. At the time, the marvel of the Wacky Cake was that it worked. It actually made a really good chocolate cake, using minimal ingredients. It uses no eggs or dairy. The fun part was the making three wells in the dry ingredients. Two of my sisters and I were allowed to pour in the liquid ingredients and Mom would combine them to bake.

The other two cakes are the Mayonnaise Cake, also chocolate, and the Tomato Soup Cake, which is a spice cake. That the Mayonnaise Cake works is no great surprise. Mayonnaise is made from oil and eggs, two ingredients often used in making a cake. The Tomato Soup Cake is a spice cake. Considering that tomatoes really are a fruit, along with the addition of quite a bit of spices, nuts and raisins, this cake is also delicious.

Following are the three recipes. I hope you will make memories with your family as my mom made for my sisters and I. When kids get involved in the making of something, they become curious to see what it tastes like. The fact that vinegar or mayonnaise or tomato soup is an ingredient in a dessert will be overlooked once the results are tasted. Their young lives will ever after be changed in wonderful ways.

Wacky Cake

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 6 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 tablespoon vinegar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 x 8 inch square baking pan. Sift together the first 5 ingredients directly into the greased pan. Make three wells in the dry ingredients. Make one well larger, one medium and one small. Have your kids pour the oil into the large well, the vinegar in the medium well and vanilla into the small well. Pour the cup of water over all and combine until just mixed. Bake for about 30 minutes. Cool completely, then frost with your favorite frosting.

Tomato Soup Cake or Mystery Cake

2 cups cake flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon cloves 1/2 cup shortening 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 1 can tomato soup, 10.5 ounces 1 cup chopped nuts 1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease two 8 inch round cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment. Sift together the first 6 ingredients and set aside. Cream the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the soup, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Beat well after each addition. Fold in the nuts and raisins. Pour into prepared pans and bake for about 30 minutes. Cool the cakes for 10 minutes before removing from pans. Cool completely and frost with an icing of your choice.

Mayonnaise Cake

2 cups all purpose flour 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda Pinch of salt 1 cup water 1 cup mayonnaise 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour an 8 or 9 inch square cake pan. In a bowl, whisk together the first 5 ingredients. Add in the next three ingredients and beat until smooth. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool completely before spreading with your favorite frosting.

Make some memories today by making one of these delightfully different cakes.
