    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!!

    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...

How much xanthan gum do you tend to use in your recipes? It's all a delicate balance! I've been dealing with this for the last 15 years due to my son who is allergic to milk, wheat, egg, and nuts. Thanks. Oh gosh - I don't have any experience with gluten-free baking. My guess is to follow the instructions...

    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?"

    Hi Elisa - Yes, members have tried many different flour combinations over the years. Some have been added in the substitutions section of the recipe in Safe Eats® . My experience with quinoa flour is that it can be kind of a strong flavor. Against the deep chocolate flavor, it's probably OK, but may stand out more with "lighter" flavors.

    Hello! Can't wait to try this cake with my little one. Wondering if other gluten-free flour options would work. Has anyone tried this cake with millet or quinoa flour? Also, I know tree nuts are in the top 9 food allergens, but we will be trialing almonds soon. Do you think almond flour would work?
