Real Crazy Cake
Easy chocolate cake that doesn't need eggs.
8" round cake pan(s)
Large mixing bowl
- 1½ cup flour
- 3 tbsp cocoa
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup water
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 5 tbsp canola oil
- Pam for baking OR flour and Crisco
Sift dry ingredients into large mixing bowl.
Make 3 depressions in mixture with the back of a spoon.
Pour vinegar in one depression, vanilla in the second and canola oil in the third.
Pour water over all, then mix well until smooth.
Pour into a greased and floured 8-inch baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Makes ONE layer of cake. You will need to double the ingredients for a two-layer cake.
Makes 12 – 15 cupcakes.
This recipe is great with German chocolate cake frosting, vanilla buttercream, or cream cheese frosting.
This is a very moist cake, so buttercream frosting will pick up cake crumbs unless you do a crumb coat before the final frosting coating.
