This vintage depression cake recipe (wacky cake recipe) is quick and easy to make with simple ingredients in 1 bowl! It has no butter, no milk, no eggs.
Use your finger to make 2 small holes and 1 large hole in this dry flour mixture.
Pour oil in the large hole.
Pour water over everything.
Mix everything together until just combined. Don't worry if you have some lumps. Just don't over-mix or else you will end up with a rubbery cake.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until an toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
Add powdered sugar (1 cup at a time) until smooth and creamy.
Pour this frosting over your entire cake and let it set in the fridge or freezer for 15-20 minutes.
Toss some sprinkles on top of the cake and enjoy!
