One of my fondest memories of my Dad's Mom, Grandma Barr, was her "Wacky Cake" it was scrup-deli-ishous! i though i had lost it, but i just found it so i will get it on JP for posterity =)

This is a great recipe for anyone w/dairy allergies. You can make a powdered sugar frosting w/orange juice and drizzle it over the top. i just made it for a gal's birthday at my Husband's work, who has wheat allergies.
