    Google crazy cake! I just substitute the spices etc...with cocoa and make it a chocolate crazy cake, it's dairy, egg and nut free.
    As for the icing just use nuttalex instead of butter

    On the cadbury website they have a fantastic moist chocolate cake recipe. I substitute the butter with nuttelex. No milk in this recipe at all.

    Google Cadbury Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe. We made it again on the weeekend, this time as cupcakes instead of one big cake, they are soooo yummy!

    We subbed butter for nutellex here for all DD2's dairy free - we also used soy in some cakes.
    Oatmilk would prob be nicer as it would be sweeter

    I find using nuttelex & rice milk works fine with cakes. Don't do a lot of baking, mind you. good luck!

    It shows that i don't do a whole lot of baking, when DS is turning one and this is the first time i had to ask for a cake recipe minus dairy.

    wish me luck!

    Be careful with rice milk and oat milk, the different sugars can make the top crack a bit more.

    I second the nuttlex and rice milk. You could also do a banana bread - doesn't usually even have milk, just the nuttlex. Much more forgiving if you're cutting it into a shape. Good luck!
