Prepare to be wowed by the cake of the moment which is causing a stir  - dubbed the ‘Crazy Cake’ this simple chocolate creation is perfect for all your vegan and dairy-free celebrations, and so chocolaty that the kids will never know the difference!

Based on the old rationing recipes form World War Two, the recipe itself requires little effort - just an oven-proof baking mould to whisk all the ingredients in!

We love it when a simple recipe comes along that even the novice cook can attempt, and with no bowls, no eggs, no milk, and no butter, we think this latest how to video from Tip Hero ticks all the boxes. Ready in under an hour with virtually no washing up, it's a win-win for everyone, allergies or no! 

Based on the old rationing recipes form WW2, the recipe itself requires little effort. All you need to do is gather together the ingredients and whisk in an oven proof cake mould before putting the cake-mix in the oven for 35 minutes at roughly 175 degrees Celsius. Allow to cool, top with your favourite frosting and Hey presto – the cake of your dreams is born! Using only flour, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, baking soda, salt, vinegar, vanilla extract, vegetable oil and water, what’s particularly great about this recipe is that you probably have most of these ingredients at home languishing in your cupboards, making it a perfect substitute version if you’ve run out of the traditional ingredients. Fab!

Although the cake is dairy-free, it's important to note that one cup of sugar is not exactly guilt-free, so remember to consume responsibly! And don't forget to check out Asda groceries to pick up all your baking ingredients, such as flour, sugar and cocoa powder.
