    This is great, and so quick and easy! I wasn’t sure whether that was packed brown sugar or not, but I packed it when I measured. I used a whisk to stir the dry and wet mixtures together as that seemed to help the flour from clumping. Also, I did lightly spray the pan with grease, couldn’t help myself, LOL. I was afraid of it sticking! I baked it in a 9 x 12 x 1 pan and that fit just right. Oh, and I used 1/2 teaspoon salt.

    I saw your post and decided to make this for dinner this evening. I must warn you, this is GOOD. So good, that daughter and I stuffed hot cake into our eager mouths. If you can’t wait for the cake to cool before devouring, at least blow on it a bit to cool it off before you have seconds or thirds. I think daughter had 4ths but I’m not counting.
    I baked it in a 9 x 13 x 2 pan. It took about 35 minutes for that size pan.

    My grandmother used to have the very same dishes as the cake plate in the picture, Homer Laughlin Virginia Rose. Wish I had them now…I just have a sugar & creamer and a couple of small plates (not hers though, mine are from flea markets).

    No eggs in this and and it bakes up as beautiful as it looks? I want to make it but I’ll wait for a reply. Thanks

    Okay, so I couldn’t wait for a reply. Glad I didn’t. OMG this is soooo good! I had trouble with it sticking. Not sure if it’s because I didn’t grease the pan or maybe because we ate it just out of the oven. We are supposed to eat it right out of the oven, right? (lol)

    Michelle, I did lightly spray the pan when I made it and had no trouble with it sticking that way. It IS a delicious recipe!!!! We love it.

    When this recipe was “found” again after having it so much while I was a kid, I was sooo excited. It is such an unusual recipe. When I was a teen, talking like 25+ years ago, there were special snakin’ cake mixes that could be purchased that were just like this. We managed to get a recipe for it and were very happy as kids. We made it often as children since we were old enough to put it together. It also was great because we were farmers with raw material and we did NOT purchase mixes. Enjoy — I’m very glad that I put this recipe for you all!

    Made this cake following the recipe exactly and here are my observations: There is a LOT of batter – if you use a jelly roll pan you will get a nice layer of cake that you can easily cut into squares. Be sure to lightly grease your pan or the cake sticks! And yes, even without using any eggs the cake turns out fine. However, I recommend adding a half teaspoon of salt – I worked in a bakery and we always added a pinch of salt to baked goods to bring out their flavor or things just taste bland. I chose to add a whole bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter as well as a cup of chopped walnuts and it gave the cake more interest. Next time, I will use 2/3 cup of real butter though instead of a liquid oil as the recipe calls for as I felt it lacked any real flavor and if it weren’t for the chocolate chips and walnuts the cake would have been totally bland. This cake is a good basic picnic and bake sale item and I will make it again for those purposes.
