One of my favorite customers is allergic to dairy. I kept having to improvise a vanilla cake recipe for this and I thought, This turns out so moist and delicious I need to just write it down so I have it handy. I'll put it up against any vanilla cake any day. Totally delicious and you never miss the dairy.
