"This is similar to crazy cake and contains no eggs, butter or milk. It's very good with peanut butter frosting."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Delicious and so easy! After reading some other reviews I took a chance and made some changes that I think improved the cake immensely. I added 2 teaspoons of vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and a tablespoon of mayonnaise (I know, it sounds strange but it really is a great addition!) Takes away the nonfat aspect of the recipe but adds a richness for just a few extra calories.
Well, it tasted like a cake made with oil and water. Which it was.....making it not so fair for me to give it a low rating, but I really didn't care for it much.
This is an excellent cake...if you want to make it a no-fat cake you can substitute apple sauce straight across for the vegetable oil...great for those on Weight Watchers! And it still tastes fantastic.
Surprisingly excellent! For a slightly healthier version, I made the following subsitutions: for 2 c sugar, I used 1/2 c honey & 3/4 c sugar. For 3 c flour, I used a mixture of white & whole wheat flour (more wheat than white). For 2 c water, I used 1 c "Lite" coconut milk and 1/2 c water. I added 2 T cocoa. The texture was medium. The cake was moist and sweet. I used a made-up coconut frosting and sprinkled coconut flakes on the top and used a berry jelly/honey mixture in between the layers. I baked it at 160 C for 30 min on "pastry mode" and it rose nicely. I will definitely make this recipe again.
I tried this recipe and the cake was kind of bland so I made a peanut butter glaze to go over it. But without it, its not sweet enough and has a weird taste.
I'm afraid I definitely noticed the absence of eggs, milk and/or butter. Dry, with a "cardboard" taste to it.
Not the best but not the worst. Was looking for something with what I had on hand..I'll keep searching. Thanks for posting though.
I found this to be a superb "everyday" cake. This is something, that while very good, isn't so terribly rich you only want it once in a while. The removal of eggs from a cake recipe also makes it great for those of us on a budget. I have experimented with the recipe a bit and have also found that 1-2 tbl of sour cream in the mix adds a nice kick.
