Wackey Cake

Ellen Pollock


I am in my 60th year and I have been making this cake since I was about 8. It is fail proof. I have added all kinds of ingredients. My family's favorite is a handful of long coconut and a handful of chocolate chips stirred in before baking. Serve with Ice cream instead of icing.
