George Hartman My mother, Lavina Hartman, made this cake many times while I was a child in the 30's. It used no milk so was a little cheaper, which was very important during the depression - hence the name. 2 eggs, separated 2 cups flour 3/4 cup butter 1 and 1/2 cups sugar 1 cup cold water 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon vanilla Cream butter and sugar, add egg yoks and mix well. Add baking soda to flour and add to batter alternately with the water, starting and ending with the flour. Add vanilla. Beat egg whites to stiff peaks and fold into the batter. Pour into 2 cake pans (8 in) and bake in 350 degree oven for 35 minutes. Frost with a white sugar frosting. Note: My mother used to put thinly sliced bananas between the layers - after frosting the first layer and before putting on the second layer.
