Crazy Cake (no eggs) with Creamy Frosting

Crazy Cake (No Eggs Required)
This recipe is a little unconventional for a cake. A gal that I worked had children that were allergic to eggs. This cake does not require any eggs.  So it was a perfect treat for the kids.  Who doesn't love chocolate cake with creamy marshmallow frosting?  It's also very inexpensive to make. Most of the ingredients are already in your pantry.
There are a few things to keep in mind when making this recipe.
  1. Only use a glass 9X13 cake pan.
  2. Do not use any metal utensils and yes, you have to mix by hand
Crazy Cake
3 C. flour
2 C. sugar
6 T. cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 C. oil
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. vinegar
2 C. water       

  1. Sift flour, sugar, cocoa and salt in a bowl. Then sift again into the cake pan (do not grease). Then sift again into the bowl and one more time into glass cake pan.  
  2. After sifting 4 times, make 3 wells in mixture in cake pan.
  3. Add the vanilla into one of the wells, the vinegar in the second well and the oil in the third well.  The oil will spill over and that's just fine.  
  4. Pour the water around the edges and mix with rubber spatula until thoroughly mixed like a cake mix. 
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes or until toothpick 
    inserted in cake comes out clean. 
Sift dry ingredients 4 times from bowl to ungreased glass cake pan.
After sifting dry ingredients, make 3 wells in mixture.
Add vanilla into one of the wells. Add vinegar into second well and add oil in the third well. The oil will spill over...that's ok.
Pour the water around the outside of the wells and start mixing with a rubber spatula until smooth.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. That's it! This cake is very moist and so delicious. For those people who can't tolerate eggs, it's a good substitute for regular cake mixes.

This frosting recipe is an oldie, but a goodie and also very inexpensive to make. It's the creamiest frosting you will ever make and eat. It's very stable and can be left out for a few days. However, your cake won't last that long! LOL!
Marshmallow Frosting
Marshmallow Frosting
5 T. Flour
1 C. milk
1/2 C. butter or margarine
1/2 C. shortening
1 C. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

  1. Whisk the milk and flour in a saucepan on stove.
  2. Cook until it becomes a pasty substance (like paste or glue)...LOL
  3. Take off heat and cool in refrigerator. (Cover with plastic wrap, so no skin forms)
  4. Make sure it is cold to the touch before adding to the rest of the ingredients.
  5. After the paste has cooled combine the sugar, butter or margarine, vanilla and paste and beat for at least 5 minutes. 
  6. Spread on cake
Make a thin paste out of flour and milk and cook on stove until it becomes a thick paste.
After you have created the paste, cover with plastic wrap so a skin doesn't form and place in refrigerator until cold.
Add remaining ingredients and beat for at least 5 minutes...
Viola' the frosting is ready to be frosted on the cake. It's creamy and marshmallowie...if there is such a word. It's the best!
