9 Cake Recipes Dairy & Egg Free

We’ve been making easy eggless and dairy-free cake recipes in our food allergy house for seventeen years. 

And they are always a huge hit! Family and friends don’t even know they contain no egg and no dairy until we tell them. 

Easy enough to enjoy at home for a weekend dessert with the family. 

Yet, delicious enough to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and special occasions with friends and those you love.

See our top favorite egg-free and dairy-free vegan cake recipes below! They are nut-free, as well.

The very first time I realized this little blog was being read by others besides my mother-in-law…

is when I found the stats section seven years into writing what I thought were simply blog diary posts. 

When I learned hundreds of allergy moms out in the world were coming to this humble little place for my chocolate cake recipe every month…

I was both shocked and completely ecstatic! 

Not only was this cake recipe a life-saver for my milk allergy son’s first birthdays…

but we were also helping food allergy parents all over the world, and I didn’t even know it.

We were so happy to help!

Upon that realization, it was time to get to work creating more variations of simple, easy, dairy-free and egg-free cakes for both ourselves and all our readers. 

Next up were vanilla cake, confetti cake that went nuts on Pinterest, mug cake that made a dashing debut on social media. 

Then we really amped things up with just-as-simple vegan pumpkin cake, carrot cake, and three-layer chocolate brownie cookie cake!

Oh, mocha coffee fudge cake is also dreamy! 

And don’t forget, the sweet dairy-free white chocolate cake pops with sprinkles…officially deemed better than the coffee drive through by my family. 

The good news is, we have all these delicious cake recipes listed and linked for you below so you can enjoy them, too.

We know you’ll love them! 

See the cake recipes below.

While our recipes are not typically gluten-free, 

there may be gluten-free reviews and notes by readers within the recipe posts themselves. 

Many allergy moms tell us they successfully make our cake recipes without gluten!

If you try making one of our recipe gluten-free and it works well, please let us know.

We’d love to include your notes, tips, and tricks, as well, to help as many friends with special diets as we can.


Many of our cake recipes require no milk at all, just use water. 

This makes them extra easy and frugal yet still very delicious. 

However, if you’re making your own icing, this usually does require some dairy-free milk. 

Or we have some store bought icing suggestions at the end of this post that have worked in our milk and nut allergy home. 

Hope that helps! 

Now for the list of vegan cake recipes. 


Here are the best and easiest egg-free and dairy-free cake recipes with years of rave reviews!

And someday soon I hope to share our favorite dairy-free ice cream cake. Stay tuned! 

My hubby knocked that one out of the park one time, and we need to recreate it.

While most of these recipe posts will have homemade frosting suggestions, 

you may also want to check out these frostings you can buy.


If you’re looking for a cake-making shortcut, here are a couple frostings you can purchase at the store.

As always, check labels for yourself. Ingredients can change. And call companies for manufacturing information, if need be.

Same with these sprinkles we love!


Right now, we are loving the Supernatural brand as the best natural dairy-free sprinkles, for these reasons:

  • no dyes
  • made in USA
  • gluten-free
  • soy-free
  • vegan
  • so cute!

You can conveniently shop Supernatural sprinkles on Amazon (affiliate link). 

Hope you’re inspired by these dairy, egg, and nut free cake recipes for your next birthday, special occasion, or weekend dessert. 

To save these for later, here’s the cake pin on Pinterest.
