Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


3 cups cake flour
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup shortening
3 T. water, 3 T. oil, 2 tsp. baking powder; mixed together
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two cake pans. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Using an electric mixer, beat until well mixed, approximately 4 minutes. Pour batter into cake pans. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to wire racks. Frost when completely cooled.

Note: Baking powder is intentionally listed twice in this recipe. The combination of 3 T. water, 3 T. oil, 2 tsp. baking powder; mixed together is the substitution for 2 eggs

I have a friend who's allergic to everything.. this is a great recipe for those types. :)

I originally got this recipe from a food allergy site so you think it's accurate for other recipes since it was a trusted source. But I haven't tried it on other recipes so I can't say for certain. If you do try it, let me know.

Sounds like a good recipe. I have a few friends who are that "allergic to everything" type. Definitely will give this a try. Good note at the end about the egg substitute! Does this work for other recipes?
