The Crazy Cake, otherwise known as a Wacky Cake or a Depression Cake, is a cake recipe that people used to make after World War Two, during times of depression, when people didn't have a lot of extra money to spare and things like eggs, milk, butter and cheese were too expensive to buy to use for baking. During this time, people had to really ration out their food and make it last until the next paycheque came, or their food ration baskets or food stamps arrived. So all of those higher quality ingredients were savoured. Usually cake recipes call for a lot of butter and eggs too so it seemed wasteful to use it on something that wasn't essential. Instead people came up with alternative ingredients to use like oil and vinegar in their cakes.
Carrot cake was also introduced when money was tight, and carrots were used because they were so easy to grow and purchase affordably. A carrot can stretch a long way and usually a couple of carrots can be enough to make a carrot cake. There are also different carrot varieties like Inca, Navajo, top cut and even indigo carrots. The nutrition in carrots is quite hight, and people have always spoke of maintaining good eye health when it comes to carrot nutrition because one of the highest vitamins in carrots nutrition is Vitamin A and Vitamin K, which is great for eye heath and good sight.
