Thanks for posting this. I am going to try it this weekend. We are vegetarians, so I keep looking for eggless recipies. Wish me luck!
This is the recipe I use, minus the coffee and cake flour. It's an old recipe from the Depression era, known as "wacky cake". I skip mixing the wet ingredients separately. I love that I don't have to get out the mixer. This is the only chocolate cake recipe I ever use. It always comes out moist and delicious, yet sturdy enough for carving and stacking. LOVE IT!
Is there supposed to be sugar in this recipe?
I think typo error. Should have sugar in there.
I would love to try this, how much sugar?
I can't believe I forgot the sugar! 2 cups off sugar-sift with other dry ingredients sorry! I actually made it once without sugar on accident.....very gross!
Thanks for the recipe, i love eggless cakes, i'm certainly going to try it. All the best to you.
Thanks for sharing, I can't wait to try this.
I contacted her and she said that it was suppose to included 2 cups of sugar to be sifted with the dry ingredients.
how much cake does this make? and how many cupcakes? thnx!
It's enough batter for 2 8 inch pans. I've used it for 10 inch pans with a little extra for cupcakes. (I love when it works out that way :) and even 3 6 inch pans. However, you don't want to let this batter sit- as soon as you mix the wet ingredients into the dry-it starts bubbling and is ready for the oven. I am not sure how many cupcakes- probably about two dozen...I've never really counted- as I usually am making multiple batters when I do cupcakes.
What is cake flour??? is this the same as self raising flour ? i live in Ireland so i know we have different names for a lot of things!!!
Kellieob, cake flour is sifted all-purpose flour with cornstarch added to it. I make this recipe without it, and it turns out fine. You can make your own cake flour if you can't find it in stores. For every cup of sifted flour, remove 2 TBSP and replace with cornstarch. Sift flour and cornstarch together several times.
Thanks for that Heidil, although i might try it your way first without that cake flour and coffee.
Thanks for posting! I have been looking for a cake recipe that doesn't use eggs. Can't wait to try it out!
OMGoodness! Thank you SO much for posting this! I've been looking for a good eggless chocolate cake recipe! My little one is allergic to eggs & he loves chocolate, so I'm very excited to try this out for his 3rd birthday in April! Yay! :)
so glad i got to see this,i will surely give it a try.
I made your recepi and I love it, thank you.
It turned out great!! Thanks for sharing:)
I had been looking for a scratch chocolate cake recipe that would have a good flavor and work well for carving. I just love this cake, its moist, carves very well and tastes very good!! Thank you soooo much for this awesome recipe!!!
Hi every 1, im new to this forum and would like to know could i make this in one large tin. Im going to make it for my Grandsons Birthday cake and also can i freeze it and then take out to decorate, would be glad for responces thanks..................oh and if i make in one tin how long would i have to cook it for.
I tried this for an egg-free customer & had to throw it all away and make a new recipe. It just wasn't sweet at all.
Ha! Now I realize why it isn't sweet at all! There's no sugar listed in the ingredients! Obviously a typo but not a good recipe without sugar!
Can I use only all purpose flour rather than cake flour ? If so how much?
This turned out very well - but you seem to have forgotten the sugar in the recipe! I used 2c and added 1/2c choc chips. I made cupcakes (@20mins at 350), but think it would likely hold up well with fondant. Curious to know how much sugar I was supposed to use... thanks for the recipe though!
