Before today, I had never heard of depression cake. This afternoon one of my Facebook friends posted that her daughter made a depression cake and I assumed that meant her daughter made a cake because she was depressed! Nope. Apparently, it’s a cake recipe that uses no butter, eggs or milk, so it was affordable even during the depression! My daughter just had to try it, so we got on Pinterest, found a recipe and whipped it up! I adapted my buttermilk brownie frosting recipe for this because it’s simple, inexpensive ingredients that I always have on hand. The links for the frosting in the recipe I found included evaporated milk and chocolate chips or chilled coconut milk and chocolate chips. I found mine to be much simpler!
