Out of Eggs?

Today as I was eating my “Apple Turnover Oatmeal”, (Add chopped apple, cinnamon and brown sugar to your oatmeal), I thought of the pioneers and wondered what they did when they ran out of eggs. Then I remembered a recipe from my Aunt Myrintha for a chocolate cake without eggs.

Wacky Cake

Sift together:

1 – 1/2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

2  Tablespoons cocoa

1 Teaspoon baking soda.

Place in an 8 X 8 pan. Make three holes in it.

Hole #1)  1 Tablespoon vinegar

Hole #2) 5 Tablespoons melted shortening

Hole #3) 1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Pour 1 cup of boiling water over all of it and mix.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

After removing from oven spread chocolate chips on top.

Wait a few minutes for the chips to soften, then spread.

It makes a hard, crust for frosting.

It makes me wonder if you can substitute a teaspoon of baking soda and a tablespoon of vinegar for the egg in pancakes.

Anyone want to try?
