That's cool! I've done swirl cakes, but I've never used this technique. I love the "zebra" effect.

I do have a heating core, but I've found that allergen friendly cakes don't always bake well in larger sizes. This is especially true of egg free cakes since they lack key structure. If you can get it baked through, the chance of cracking or crumbling while handling it is pretty high. I've found that Wacky Cake doesn't do well in anything bigger than 9x13 - it takes so long for the center to heat up that the single acting leavening just fizzles out. Gluten/wheat free cakes are very difficult...

I have been asked to make a cake for a 2 yr old who has severe dairy, egg and soy alergy, this is the first recipe I have come across, is it for defiantly free from all three? if so what flour do you use, and is the vinegar normal brown or is it white?

We make "wacky cake" all the time for our kids! Yes - the recipe is egg, dairy & soy-free! We use "unbleached all purpose" flour, and whatever vinegar works for your allergy set. We often use either apple cider vinegar or white vinegar. There are lots more allergy-friendly cake recipes here: http://www.kidswithfoodallergi...friendly-recipes.php

You can use whatever brand all purpose flour they normally use. The vinegar is whatever works. I generally use cider vinegar. For milk alternative, I recommend SoDelicious coconut beverage. Use the unsweetened. If the friend has a milk alt they use for the kiddo, just use that.

Hi Kim, Just be sure to read every ingredient label of every thing you use. Be aware that some ingredients in your kitchen may be contaminated if you ever double-dipped. The safest thing to do is buy all new ingredients. If you want to make a frosting/icing for this cake, you'll need to use milk and soy free shortening or margarine. Options are Earth Balance soy-free (red packaging) or coconut oil (among a few others). You can keep it simple and just do the solid fat (safe margarine or...

We love Wacky Cake! A note from living at high altitude ... my wacky cake cupcakes were delicious but a bit flat and even sunken, so I dug out my cookbooks to read up on baking at high altitude, and based on that info made the following adjustments to the recipe: 1) reduced the baking soda to 3/4 teaspoon 2) reduced the sugar by a couple tablespoons 3) increased the baking temperature to 375 degrees 4) reduced the baking time a couple minutes (cupcakes I do about 18 min) After making those...

I've been making Wacky cake for years, and my family loves it....as cakes, cupcakes, etc. I need to make one tomorrow for my dad's birthday, but my mom is allergic to all vinegars! (I usually use cider vinegar in it.) If I use lemon juice (a common substitute for vinegar), will it adversely affect the taste of chocolate wacky cake? Is there something else I can use? Thanks!!

Re: How to Make Kathy P's Allergy-Friendly Wacky Cake

Kathy P ·
You really just need any acid....what about some orange juice?? Orange goes well w/ chocolate, but I don't think it will actually change the taste. I tried to make a chocolate orange one time and used the full cup of OJ and it was only a hint of flavor.

I use lemon all the time. It works just fine and doesn't affect the chocolate flavor. I've found that lemon juice seems to make the cake rise the best out of all the acids.

Lynn used the Kathy P Wacky Cake recipe to make this chocolate raspberry heart-shaped cake: She shared that to make the heart shape, she used an 8 inch square pan + 8 inch round pan. Cut round cake in half and put on 2 sides of the square cake. Here is a link to Chocolate Silk Frosting and Vanilla Silk Frosting . There are ways to make these recipes free of the top 8 allergens, so if you have questions, please let us know! (For example, there are soy-free shortenings, and dairy- and soy-free...

I would definitely use the 1 3/4 cup of gf flour. Otherwise the batter is way too thin. If your mix does not contain xanthan, then add 1/2 tsp per cup.

Kathy, I'm still updating the styling of the "Quotes", so it may still be hard to see at the moment. The question above is asking, " What type of cocoa powder does everyone use?"
