This is an easy egg and dairy free cake which really is delicious. You can ice it or just eat it as it is.
Always on the look out for egg-free cake recipes for my 4yo and he has declared is "the best cake ever". Can't come with a higher recommendation than that! Super easy to make too even with two pre-schoolers helping. Love it! - 11 Jul 2012
Had a couple of gliches with the recipe. In the ingredient list, it didn't include baking powder but when putting it together, it said to add baking powder. I added about 1 tsp. just in case. Also at the top of the recipe, it said Cook Time: approx. 1 hour. At the end of the recipe, it said 25 minutes baking time. The 25 minutes was the correct time! - 27 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is the recipie I have been searching for for a LONG time. My mom got it from my Gramma who got it from her mom and it was made during the depression when sugar, flour and such was cheap, thus the name "Poor Man's Cake". The recipie was lost and now I have rediscovered it again, except I will make it in a tube pan as my mom and Gramma always made it...
