I need a new recipe for white cake. Does anyone have one they would like to share? Has anyone tried the Dr.Oekter brand cake mixes? Apparently there are no eggs, milk or nuts in the mixes.

Also, I remember reading somewhere on the forum of a dairy free substitute for evaporated milk? I can't remember where I read it, can anyone help?

We use Dr. Oetker cake mixes. We don't have a dairy allergy though, but do avoid nuts & egg. They list the products on their website that are free of various allergens here : ... on=page_47

But they also state that they won't gaurantee that there is no cross contamination. When I called the company I was satisified with their procedures and continue to use their mixes.

I also make their cake mixes with a can of diet 7-up now (tried reg 7-up and the diet actually turns out better). They turn out very moist, but don't rise a lot without the eggs.

Google up a Wacky Cake recipe. Leave out the cocoa and add some vanilla or lemon flavor (check for safety, of course).

For a quickie option I use the PC Organics vanilla cake mix, I substitute egg replacer and rice milk and it turns out great.

Typically for homemade cakes I simply replace the egg with egg replacer and the milk with rice milk. If it calls for butter I use safe margarine or oil. I've even used more milk in a recipe that calls for yogourt or sour cream and put lemon juice in rice milk if it calls for buttermilk. They all turn out fine.

Good luck
