(Simple) parve cake
Planning to make a simple parve cake for husbands birthday. I want to make it today, so need something that won't dry out.
Nothing fancy, one layer, fluffy frosting. Daughter wants to decorate with sprinkles.
Any ideas? Thinking chocolate cake, but all the ones I've made are dairy.
I was going to suggest the same thing. I've been making this cake since I was about eight, and it's easy and delicious. There's no butter in the cake itself (perhaps pitagirl was thinking of the frosting recipe that's also on the box?), as it's an oil-based cake, so the only substitution you need to make is soy/almond/etc. milk for regular. The oil keeps it very moist. It takes very well to flavor additions, too - try a teaspoon of cinnamon, or the liqueur of your choice, or using orange juice instead of half the milk, etc.
if you have kids in the kitchen kosher by design i LOVE the chocolate cake in there; think it was adapted from hershey cake
