Wacky Cake

This delicious recipe is from my friend Lianne and it is a family favourite. It is perfect for birthday cakes when you want to avoid chocolate but still want a yummy moist cake.  It is dairy-free and can be made gluten-free too, which makes it a cake for everyone. It can be made with self-raising flour - just omit the baking powder and vinegar. I'm guessing it is called a wacky cake because it is made directly in the pan you cook it in. I like that - less to wash up :)


1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/3 cup honey or 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup carob powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp vingear
1/3 cup oil
1 cup water
1/2 cup optionals (eg chopped dates, sultanas, nuts etc)


Mix dry ingredients in an ungreased non-stick pan.
Add wet ingredients and mix really well
Cook 20 - 25 minutes at 180C
