Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: mommy2seanp


1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup water
5 Tbsp oil


Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Add in syrup, water and oil.

Mix (I mix until there are no more bumps), pour into cupcake holders and bake for 23 minutes (mini cupcakes) 24 minutes (regular cupcakes).


My son is on a very limited diet of 10 foods and this is a very quick and easy cake for him. This is modified from the original Wacky Cake recipe.


I use olive oil and Prefer Grade B Syrup.
