This recipe was from Ethel McAllister who lived in the Chugiak area in the early 1960s. Ethel was both an accomplished cook and seamstress. She operated a drapery shop in one-half of her garage and filled orders for drapes from several large Anchorage stores. Her Wacky Cake recipe is a fun one to do with the kids.
