White Wacky Cake

This is a white version of the more commonly known wacky cake that is chocolate. Both versions are great first recipes for beginner bakers as they can be mixed up quickly and even right in the pan. Our house is divided on the two versions - half prefer this version and half prefer the traditional chocolate one.  If you're baking something for dinner and the oven is on anyway, try making this sometime.  It really is easy and delicious!


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
3 T. oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract*
1 T. white vinegar
1 cup water


Preheat oven to 350°F. In an 8" square or round baking pan, whisk together all-purpose flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture and add oil, vanilla, white vinegar, and water. Whisk until well combined. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

*This gives it that "white" cake taste, but if you have allergies or do not have any on hand, just use all vanilla.
