Non-Dairy Chocolate Cake

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

This is a very moist chocolate cake. I've also known it to be called Wacky Cake or Crazy Cake. My family likes it with Canned Milk Frosting. (kinda defeats the purpose of non-dairy :) This is very easy one dish and easy clean up. Enjoy!

Great recipe!! I was a little leary at first with the vinegar in it, but read all the reviews and they were all so fantastic. My friends' daughter is allergic to dairy, so I wanted to make sure that she could have cake at my sons party. I did this recipe into cupcakes - turned out great. So nice and moist, a bit hit. About 14-15 mins in the oven on 350F for cupcakes!! Also, my friend and husband were very greatful that their little girl didn't have to go without a chocolatey treat!!

My son has a friend who is allergic to dairy and eggs so I searched for a cake recipe that I could make for a party that this child would be attending and tried this recipe. The cake was a huge hit with both the kids and the moms. It was easy to make and very yummy. I will be using this as my standard chocolate cake recipe from now on!

thank you Stacie for a wonderful recipe. this cake is extremely moist,rises quite nicely,tastes wonderful and is so easy to prepare! These ingredients are always on hand so it can be whipped up at a moments notice. I highly recommend this recipe. Awesome with or without frosting. I'm going to make this cake next time by adding some chocolate chips and omit frosting so i can have it on hand as a *snack cake* for my sons lunches and after school. Yummy :)
