This recipe is fast and easy. We have used our delicious Blood Orange Olive Oil and Raspberry Balsamic vinegar to customize the traditional Wacky Cake recipe (no eggs or milk, which is why it is called ‘wacky’ and it was a favorite in war or depression times in the USA). You can customize this recipe in countless ways with balsamic and olive oil variations, frostings, decorations, etc.
- 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup white sugar
- 4 tablespoons good quality unsweetened Cocoa powder

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
Sift flour, sugar, salt, soda and cocoa together in a mixing bowl and use a whisk to mix well. After well mixed make three depressions (wells) in the dry mixture for the liquids.

Pour the water over all and stir well with a whisk until well blended.
Pour batter into an 8×8 pan that has been lightly coated with a non-stick spray.
