Fast Flavorful Recipe for Chocolate Cake Without Eggs | Depression EraSpice Cake | Yum Yum Holiday Classic

This chocolate cake without eggs is a loaf simple cake recipe made with spices of cloves and cinnamon and is also what is known as a Depression era cake. Because money was tight and food was rationed, many families were forced to become creative to enjoy desserts and sweets.

I first was introduced to this easy, simple chocolate cake through my future mother-in-law. Later I found out that my son-in-law's grandmom also makes a cake out of the same recipe.

It really is delicious, and everyone in our family calls it Yum Yum cake! Try it and pass this simple recipe along to generations in your family to become a holiday tradition!  Not only is this spice cake wonderful for fall, Thanksgiving or Christmas, it will also dress up your buffet table for New Years! We like it all year long. When I make it by special request as a Birthday Cake, I double the recipe and make it in a bundt pan.  Frost with a simple butter cream frosting, or even powdered sugar.
