Crazy Cake Recipe
This cake was popular during the Depression, and does not have eggs in it.
This cake is make without milk or eggs and is moist, dark and delicious. A brain child of the depression era when ingenious cooks developed a cake that could be made without expensive and scarce ingredients.
This is similar to crazy cake and contains no eggs, butter or milk. It's very good with peanut butter frosting.

When I want chocolate cake, nine times out of ten, this is the cake I make. Whether eaten plain, or my favourite way, which is sandwiched with dulce de leche and topped with chocolate ganache, it's brilliant! One little thing though: the directions are fine if you want to serve your cake in the pan, but if you want to unmould it for prettier presentation, your pan will need to be greased and floured, or brushed with bakers' secret (which is no secret: combine equal parts oil, shortening, and flour). This means you should mix the cake in a separate bowl, but hey, it's still really easy and cleanup is minimal. Now! For all you people nervous about the vinegar: there is a simple reason why it's there. For a cake to rise, you need an alkali, and an acid. When the alkali and the acid combine, they react with each other, giving off carbon dioxide, which is what makes the cake rise. All cakes other than yeast cakes are risen this way.

Chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. This recipe has been a favorite for birthdays in my family for years. The cake is very moist.
Amazing. Have made it several times and it's worked great. Couple of tips. 1) use ice cold water. if you remember your chemistry classes, the colder the water, the slower the baking soda + vinegar reaction will be. And you want as much reaction happening AFTER you put the cake in the oven, not before. 2) Mix (sift) the dry ingredients together in 1 bowl. Mix the wet ingredients in another bowl (or measuring cup). DO NOT mix the wet and dry ingredients together until everything else is ready (oven hot, pan greased, etc). 3) If you are having trouble getting the cake out of the pan, throw the entire pan + cake in the freezer overnight. That will prevent the cake from tearing when you take it out. I found the cake easier to frost when semi-frozen too.
I never review anything. But I am so delighted to have found such a great cake without eggs. My daughter has an egg allergy and she gets so bummed when she can't have cake at birthdays. Not only is this eggless, but it's really, really good cake. not too sweet, but really chocolatey. Made as written except didn't mix in pan and added mini choc chips. excellent, thanks!
