Crazy Cake – Isaacson / Trent

Note:  I have to start by saying that both the Isaacson (Freeman) and Trent family had versions of this recipe.  The theory is that it originated during World War II when things such as butter and eggs were being rationed.  However it came into being I’m very happy to share this recipe with everyone!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
