Vanilla Cake

The classic vanilla cake in a non-dairy version. Its still fluffy and moist and oh so delicious.


  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup sunflower or other light oil
  • 2 Tablespoons white vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3-1/2 cups sifted flour (I sift twice for a springy cake)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • vegetable cooking spray


  1. Preheat over to 350 deg F. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together last four ingredients in another bowl and sift together well.
  2. Add the dry mixture to the liquid and mix well with either an electric mixer or by hand till all lumps are gone. Let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Pour into a 13x9x2 baking pan coated with vegetable oil spray, or cupcake tins (fill 2/3 full). Do not bang air bubbles out of this cake.
  4. Bake about 40 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean, the cake springs back, and tops are slightly golden.
  5. Frost with your favorite icing.
