Wacky Cake is a classic egg and dairy free chocolate cake. NO mixer needed for this cake recipe, because it’s mixed right in the 9×13 pan that it’s baked in. You get a soft, chocolatey cake that you can top with any frosting you like!


  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups water


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In an un-greased 9×13 baking pan sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk the ingredients together gently to combine.
  3. Make 3 wells in the dry ingredients. Pour the vanilla in one, the vinegar in another, and the oil in the last. Pour the water all over the top. Using a whisk or a fork, stir the batter until smooth and combined.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted int he center comes out clean.
  5. Allow the cake to cool and dust with powdered sugar or frost.


I like using my Perfect Party Frosting or the poured icing from my Sunday Chocolate Cake.
