Several times a week questions come in from readers who are searching for recipes for a cake that is vegan, or for a cake made without milk, or for a cake made without eggs. I’m always happy to respond that I have already posted two such recipes for two truly delicious cakes, but since the questions keep coming, I thought this would be a good time to devote a post to my egg free, milk free, vegan cake recipes.

Our favorite is the chocolate cake. You will find that it is as easy to make as a cake mix… in fact, I use this recipe to make my own chocolate cake mix. Making this cake is as simple as whisking together the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients. You can even mix this cake right in the baking pan. Anyone, even the most inexperienced baker, can follow this recipe and turn out a perfect chocolate cake the very first time. This is an amazing recipe!

The other recipe is for an applesauce spice cake that is really delicious too. It is made exactly the same way… you just whisk the wet ingredients and dry ingredients together right in the baking pan. You can make a cake mix from this recipe too… just measure and package up your dry ingredients, and add the wet ingredients when you’re ready to make the cake.

If you or someone in your family is allergic to eggs, allergic to dairy products, or lactose intolerant, or if you’re vegan and don’t eat any animal products, you’ll love these egg free, milk free cakes. And if you’re not any of the above, I hope you’ll still try these recipes. (They’re soy free too.) Both cakes are super easy, super quick to make, and super delicious. Don’t be surprised if they become your favorites too.
