My daughter's birthday was recently, and she wanted a chocolate cake. My little guy loves chocolate now too, so he certainly couldn't be left out! So, on with the search for a safe chocolate cake for him!
To the rescue, wacky cake! Luckily my search didn't take long! Wacky cake is a traditional recipe that it said to have been developed in the depression era - it's already dairy and egg free! All I needed to do was switch out the wheat flour. Many recipes also include a bit more sugar (a full cup) than I've included below, but that was just too sweet and sticky to me. I reduced it just a bit so the cupcakes are still sweet, but not too sweet to be topped with icing or to mix in some mini chocolate chips like I did in the photo below!
Preheat oven to 350F.
