Crazy Cake, No Eggs, Dairy-free
I was looking for a recipe for my Abbie girl’s 5th birthday class party, and my friend Susan had this great recipe for a crazy cake-a cake made with no eggs. I subsequently used it for my Ellie girl’s 7th birthday class party, too! Even though it doesn’t have any eggs in it, you would think it does because the cake has a nice rise. I made a few substitutions to make the cake dairy-free, also, which, in turn, makes the cake vegan as well.
The Verdict: This is such a hit with kids! I have been making ice cream cone cupcakes for the class birthdays for the last few years. If you are going to make it in the ice cream cones, make sure you only fill the cones 3/4 of the way full. Place the filled cones in a muffin tin to help stabilize. I experimented with baking them timing-wise. Bake for 18 minutes and then check to see if they are done with a toothpick.
I love bringing these for class parties because they are different than a normal cupcake and they clean up easier since the kids get to eat the ice cream cone “wrapper”!
