Vanilla Depression Cake Recipe- This vanilla cake became famous during the depression when staples like milk and eggs were scarce. This is a great dessert idea when entertaining friends and family who must follow an egg-free, dairy-free diet because of food allergies. But most importantly this homemade vanilla cake recipe is delicious, inexpensive, and easy to make.
When I first saw this video for Southern Living's four-ingredient peanut butter cookies, I couldn't conceal my skepticism. How could you possibly make cookies from peanut butter, egg, sugar, and vanilla extract alone?! It seemed suspiciously too easy, but I had to try it out! With so many friends and family members on gluten-free and dairy-free diets, I figured if the recipe did work, I could make a lot of people happy.
