for white cake omit the cocoa and chocolate chunks add 1/4 cup of flour and use white flour...for a better choc cake use coffee instead of water and apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar ....for spice cake make like white cake but add 1tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of ground cloves,ginger,nutmeg, allspice and cardamon if you want and use balsamic vinegar all of these are wonderful
I love this recipe i have been making it for years with no eggs or milk someone with that type of allergy can eat this and you dont have to worry about getting sick from raw eggs if you lick the bowl i have many variations of this
My sons loved this and it was very quick & easy with ingredients I already had on hand-no special grocery stop needed. I made it during the week when we had no sweets in the house. Sharing the recipe with friends now also. Will definitely make again very soon.
I like this recipe when I have very little in the house and want something special for company. It is even better with chopped nuts in the recipe.
