Oh; I thought it was from WW 2.  Yes, I know you can mix it in the pan you bake it in.  That's cool.  The lady who gave it out on the late night talk show long ago said to use a springform pan.  I don't have one of those anymore, but I know other pans will work, and I can do that.

It's a Great Depression recipe from the 1930s.

Ah, yes.  This is an old recipe.  Even Peg Bracken had it in her I Hate to Cook Book or something like that.  She called it Cock-Eyed Cake.  I also made this, and of course, one late night, a woman gave this recipe out on a talk show.  I tried it right away, it was in the early 1980's, and I liked it.  I have not made this crazy cake in a long time.  Wacky Cake, Crazy Cake, Cock-Eyed Cake, whatever you call it, it is a good old recipe, pretty foolproof, even for a blind person.
