We often get many of our first time visitors at this page, the Milk and Egg Free Cake recipe. Thanks for all the kind comments letting us know that you found us.
We would also love to have you join us on Facebook to meet many other milk and/or egg allergy friends. We have a fast growing community there.
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 Fleischmann's Unsalted Margarine Sticks.
This recipe is for chocolate cake, but see other cake flavor options below.
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.
Our favorite icing for this cake is Pillsbury Creamy Supreme from a tub. It comes in flavors of Chocolate Fudge, Classic White, and Cream Cheese, and for now they are all dairy free. They all contain soy. Check labels because Pillsbury WHIPPED icings DO contain milk.
UPDATE: My SIL had the whipped Pillsbury icing at her son's party, and the container did not have milk listed in the ingredients. Miles ate it safely. So the whipped icings may now be safe. I need to check more labels at the store to be sure.
I will also add that we have always done fine with using the sprinkles that sometimes come with the Pillsbury icings. And many other sprinkles work as well, as most are "just" sugar. ;)
Please let us know how your cake turns out!
