If you have to bake without egg (or dairy), chances are, you’ve heard of the Wacky Cake. Or Crazy Cake, or Depression Cake. The Wacky Cake is a very good cake, and always gets rave reviews when I share it with people–even those who don’t have dietary restrictions. You don’t always want a chocolate cake though, so here is how to convert the Wacky Cake into a Yellow Wacky Cake!

  • Ingredients:
    • 3 1/2 cups flour (can be gf flour)
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 2 tsp baking soda
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 3/4 cup vegetable oil (I use canola)
    • 2 Tbsp white vinegar
    • 1 Tbsp vanilla
    • 2 cups cold water
  • Instructions:
    1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Line your cake pan(s) with parchment paper.
    3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt until combined.
    4. Make three wells in the dry mixture. Pour the oil into one, the vinegar into another and the vanilla into the third.
    5. Pour the cold water over everything and mix until thoroughly combined.
    6. Pour the batter into the lined cake pan.
    7. Bake for 45 minutes for a 9x13, 35-40 minutes for rounds, or 25 minutes for cupcakes--or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
    8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool somewhat.
    9. Run a knife between the outer edge of the cake and the pan. Turn upside down to remove cake from pan. Remove the parchment paper and allow to cool completely before sculpting or frosting.
