You may be too young to know the Origin of the ‘Depression Cake’ or 'Wacky Cake' but it’s making a comeback.
If you're asking what exactly is "depression cake?" It's a cake that doesn't require milk, eggs, or butter and it became a thing during The Great Depression when food supplies were limited.
The Ingredients are simple they include flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and a few other things from the pantry topped with whipped cream or powdered sugar.
The dessert, also known as "wacky cake" is becoming more and more popular as many are self-isolating and can't make it to the grocery store for supplies.
