Vegan Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Recipe (Egg-Free, Dairy-Free)
Vegan, Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Grain-Free
Our version of Crazy Cake (also known as Wacky cake) is a super EASY, springy, rich, chocolate cake that no one will ever know is gluten or grain-free! It mixes together like a dream in ONE BOWL (so cleanup is a snap!) and is free from both Eggs and Dairy! It’s so delicious and easy to make that it’s a great tool to get kids active in the kitchen. Fun Fact: Wikipedia says it may have been created as the result of rationing during World War II, when milk and eggs were scarce.
