Now onto the recipe!
This is a basic ingredient recipe that is also dairy and egg free! It's yummy and moist and tastes like "normal" cake!
This is also known as 4-H cake, depression cake, crazy cake, and wacky cake in other circles.
This recipe is for 12 cupcakes, a 9x9 cake, or an 8x8 cake.
Double the ingredients for 24 cupcakes, a double layer round cake, or 9x13" cake.
Heat oven to 350.
Grease pan(s) with an allergy safe food if you are making this for someone with food allergies. We have luck with most Pam sprays and or dairy-free margarine also works.
This recipe is for chocolate cake, but see other cake flavor options below.
DAIRY-FREE & EGG-FREE CHOCOLATE CAKE
1.5 c flour
1 c sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup oil
1 c cold water
Combine ingredients and pour into greased pan or muffin tin. Bake in oven until done, when cake springs back to the touch or a toothpick comes out clean. Time varies on the pan you use, 15 to 30 minutes possibly.
DAIRY-FREE & EGG-FREE HOMEMADE FROSTING
1/4 cup chilled dairy-free margarine
1/4 cup chilled shortening
1-3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix chilled margarine and chilled shortening with a mixer, in a chilled bowl. Add vanilla. Slowly add powdered sugar. Put in frig to chill before icing, if necessary.
You can make this soy-free by using soy-free margarine like Earth Balance. They make a soy margarine, too, so make sure you get the right one.
If you want frosting from a tub, Pillsbury Creamy Supreme has been dairy-free but does contain soy. It comes in flavors of Chocolate Fudge, Classic White, and Cream Cheese. Be sure to check labels because ingredients can change!
