There’s a cupcake recipe with vinegar (by Chef RV Manabat) going around Facebook recently and I was reminded of this Crazy Cake we used to do a lot with our (now expired) toaster oven.
It’s very easy to do with none of the usual preparation when making a cake. You just dump them together, making sure not to over mix the ingredients.
This crazy cake is a science-d cake invented in the Depression Era in the United States. It has no butter, milk, and eggs but it is able to stand up because of the vinegar. The baking soda reacts with the vinegar to give the cake its lift and moist texture (and does not make the cake taste like vinegar at all!).
And because it has no eggs and milk, those with allergies can eat them without being worried about their allergy.
- 3 cups flour (all-purpose)
- 6 tbsp. cocoa (unsweetened)
- 2 cup sugar
