This is a cake that was originally for people with food allergies, I don't have any of those. I make it because it's delicious!

Top Review by Michelle A.

It is a good basic cake recipe. I didn't think it was too dense, but I also don't have box cake mix often enough to remember what it is like for a good comparison. I took some of the other reviewers' comments and implemented their suggestions. I used only 2.5 teaspoons total of baking powder, added 3 T apple sauce, used A.P. flour and added 3 T cornstarch. I also used coconut oil instead of shortening.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two cake pans (I usually use 9" round). Mix together 3 T. water, 3 T. oil, 2 teaspoons baking powder. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Using an electric mixer, beat until well mixed, approximately 4 minutes. Pour batter into cake pans. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to wire racks.
  2. Frost when completely cooled.
  3. Note: Baking powder is intentionally listed twice in this recipe. The combination of 3 T. water, 3 T. oil, 2 teaspoons baking powder; mixed together is the substitution for 2 eggs.
