Non-Dairy Chocolate Cake

"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 :)

    Just tried this recipe today. Excellent chocolate flavor and moist! I actually forgot to add the vinegar, but somehow it still came out great. I used 1 cup sugar (that's all I had) and 1/2 cup brown sugar. It worked! Just want to add that this recipe is super easy and quick to make. Thank you!!

    I have a friend who has kids who are allergic to eggs and dairy. She gave me this recipe to try and I just found it on Zaar! My DD also is allergic to dairy so I'm always looking yummy treats for her. The only difference was that her recipe called for 2 tsp. of vinegar instead of 2 Tbsp. and hers had 2/3 c. oil instead of 3/4 c. oil. So, apparently a little more or less doesn't hurt.


Hi! I am a stay-at-home mom of 4 children. They are 13, 8, 7, 6. I like to cook things that are quick to make, inexpensive, easy to double and good for you. My oldest child will hardly eat anything, so when I find something she likes, it becomes a staple in our family cookbook. I hope you enjoy the recipes my family likes and I know I'll be using plenty of yours. :)
