Easy Chocolate Cake - NO EGGS! printable recipe

Ahh, nothing quite says love like chocolate cake 
with peanut butter icing. at my house, at least!

This is my GO-TO chocolate cake and 
#1 requested cake for birthdays!  
It whips up in a flash and is moist, 
delicious and oh-so-easy to make!

It starts with 3 easy steps...
1. melt a stick of butter, remove from heat.
2. stir in the vinegar, vanilla & 2 cups of water.
3. Set aside...that's it for the wet ingredients!

For the dry ingredients:
Combine your flour, sugar, cocoa powder, 
baking soda & salt.

Stir the butter mixture into the 
dry ingredients with a FORK
until the lumps disappear.

Pour into a cake pan and bake!

Top it with your favorite frosting or 
a dollop of whipped cream!

Check out my "quick" tips below!

Chocolate Cake - NO Eggs from Maria Matter @ Five Simple Things 2014


-this cake mixes up so easily, 
you can just mix it up right in your 
cake pan then pop it in the oven,
no need to dirty a bowl!

-to pull this cake together even
quicker; combine the dry ingredients
together in a mason jar to keep on 
hand. Kinda like a boxed cake mix!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll share my delicious peanut butter icing recipe along with some other 
favorites this coming week.

  1. My mom called this "Crazy Cake" when I was growing up. Crazy, because it had no eggs, I guess??? Anyway, it was a fave! I haven't made it for years, but I think I need to now that I am reminded of it. I have the recipe in my file. :)
