Wacky White Cake {Vegan}

Posted on

I recently had a request on facebook for a vegan white cake recipe from a lady whose daughters both have extreme food allergies.  Since I don’t have one, I decided to try making one up, and unlike many baking experiments, this one turned out great the first time!  I combined my recipe for Wacky Cake with the Dairy-Free White Cupcakes recipe and although the resulting cake is heavier than a regular white cake, it is very moist and has a great flavor.  I have no pictures of the whole cake because I hate a whole row of the cake while it was still warm.  Oops!

Wacky White Cake

Printable recipe
Printable recipe with picture

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (use clear to keep the cake white-I didn’t)
2 teaspoons almond extract
1 cup cold water

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and set aside. Sift all dry ingredients together into a large bowl. Make three wells and put the oil in one, the vanilla & almond extract in another, and the lemon juice in the last. Pour water over it all and mix until well blended. Pour into prepared pan and bake 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Frost with white celebration frosting, or your favorite recipe. (I made a simple glaze with lemon juice, water, and powdered sugar.)  Serve at room temperature.

  8. I’ve been wanting to do some experimenting to turn chocolate crazy cake (which I think might be similar to what you call wacky cake?) into a vegan vanilla cake, and now I won’t have to since you shared this with us! :)

    I love how moist it looks…really perfect, Veronica. Pretty sprinkles too. :)

  13. Thanks for these simple vegan treats. I have many treat recipes that my kids love, but none so simple. I can whip this up with simple low cost ingredients and that is a treasure when you live in the middle of no where and vegan specialty foods cost a bundle. I dislike boxed foods and egg replacers! This is just as easy as a box mix and egg replacers and by far better in many ways!

  18. Amazing cake!! It tasted sooo delicious, but it will be easier if I did a homemade glaze like yours, what is the recipe you used for this cake’s glaze? it looks perfect!

    • So glad to hear you loved it. :) I didn’t use a recipe or measurements, I just dumped some powdered sugar in a bowl and added enough lemon juice to get a thick glaze consistency. I might have used half water to keep it from getting too tart, but I’m pretty sure it was straight lemon juice.
