Lots of people are spending more time at home, and home baking is on the rise. However, baking staple ingredients like flour and eggs are becoming hard to come by in the grocery store, and that’s likely to continue for a while.
Having a baking ingredient is nothing new, and recipes have been adapted for decades when food were rationed during times of world war and famine. There is a simple way to make a chocolate cake without any eggs, flour or butter. It’s called the Depression Era Cake, the Crazy Cake or Wacky Cake.
