Scrumptious Spice Cake (CASEIN FREE - No Dairy)

I tweaked a Fannie Farmer Spice Cake recipe.
Of course, you may swap out the non-dairy items for butter & milk.


1/4 pound soy margarine or 1/2 cup shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup rice milk
1/2 cup molasses
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Use pan ease to prepare baking pan.
For this recipe, I used a fluted pan. Cooking times will vary, depending on the shape, qty, & or material from which your pan is made.

In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, & spices. (Sift to prevent lumps & ensure proper distribution of baking soda. Set Aside.

Cream the margarine or shortening & slowly add the sugars, beating until light.
Next, beat in the eggs. Add the rice milk & molasses. Beat thoroughly.

Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture until well blended.
Pour the batter into the baking pan(s) & bake.

2 layers = 30 mins
square = 45-50 mins
fluted = 45-50 mins

Test to see if knife comes out clean.

Cool for 5 minutes before turning out cake(s) onto cooking rack.

Frost with Creamy Frosting.
