I have a recipe from my grandmother, from the depression/rationing days, called "Eggless, Butterless, Milkless cake" It has fat/oil in it, but the recipe says that can be of any kind, even bacon grease.

I've made the cake any number of times but never used bacon grease, just vegetable oil.

I do love bacon greased though, nothing better for frying potatoes or eggs. I have fried bread, but very lightly, using just enough grease to crisp the bread.
