Wacky Birthday!

Somehow our daughter scored two birthdays this year ... hmm. For her birthdays we made Wacky Cake. I first heard of this egg and peanut free cake on various peanut blogs and thought we'd give it a try.

It was great! Very moist. Quite tasty. I would highly recommend this simple, simple recipe by Diana Rattray. There is certainly nothing sacrificed. Here's the recipe:


  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup cold water


In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt. Make three wells in the flour mixture. In one put vanilla; in another the vinegar, and in the third the oil. Pour the cold water over the mixture and stir until moistened. Pour into 8 x 8-inch pan. Bake at 350°F. oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until it springs back when touched lightly.
