Great Depression Cake ( No Egg No Milk)


Hello everybody.

Yesterday I met a sweet lady who asked me if I make no egg and milk cake cause as you know it’s fasting time now and she had trouble finding one for her mom on Mother’s day.

Her question intrigued me to look for such recipe which led me to many.Most famous ones are called “big depression” or ” crazy cake” or “wacky cake”. Reason for this name goes back to the great depression time when eggs and dairy products were available so people had to use other resources to make cake. Result was really good and light, I changed a bit in the recipe to add up the flavor and topped it with pineapples and roasted coconuts.

Too many occasions and birthdays  today,though nobody celebrating lives here but I did this beautiful cake anyway, lucky day for Jona my housemaid cause it happens to be her birthday also and she celebrated with her friends and ate the cake,well most important is that someone became happy eating it nevertheless.Happy Birthday Aya,AJ,Salma and happy anniversary to my beloved sis Reema, love you all.

Cake mix is the same as the Cherry Cake I did before but baked in a big rectangular pan to a thin sheet cake,then I added strawberry jam,cream and chopped strawberries and rolled all together like a Swiss Roll, covered with cream,toasted coconuts and finally decorated with strawberries and pineapples.

This cake reminds me of cake patisserie shops long time ago when we were kids in Jabal Al- Hussein,we used to walk to this small shop called Milano just to buy it,yummy yummy.

I also made these Fitness Bars,found a bit old Fitness pack in my pantry this morning,after a quick search in many websites I invented this no ingredients recipe, just mixed Fitness flakes with some butter,peanut butter,toasted wheatgerm and oats,coconut,raisins,brown sugar then added honey till mix is sticky then baked it for 20 minutes,cut to bars when cooled ,great breakfast energy bar,tasted exactly like the ones you buy from stores !

Oh lunch was sweet and sour from yesterday and I made some green fava beans in olive oil (فول بالزيت)
