Here is a recipe for the best chocolate cake ever (vegan or otherwise). I know the vinegar sounds kind of wierd, but seriously, this cake is SO good. No one has ever guessed that it was vegan. And it is easy to make, too!



1 1/2 cups sifted unbleached flour

1 cup unrefined sugar

3 T cocoa

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

6 T canola oil

1 T white vinegar

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup cold water



Sift flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda & salt into large bowl. Make 3 holes in sifted ingredients. Pour oil into one, vinegar into second, and vanilla into third. Pour cold water over all and stir with whisk until well blended. Pour into 8" square pan and bake at 350 for apporximately 25-30 minutes. Do not wait until sides pull back from pan or it will burn.



I usually frost it with a basic vegan version of buttercream frosting:



1/4 cup margarine

2 1/4 cups powdered sugar

2 tbsp soy milk

1 tsp vanilla



Mix together margarine and 1 cup of powdered sugar with an electric whisk. Add remaining sugar a little at a time, alternating with some milk. Mix until smooth and then stir in vanilla.



Yummy.

Kreeli, thanks for that peanut butter frosting recipe from your site. Sounds marvelous. Does anyone know where you can get vegan powdered sugar?

Inkie, just put vegan sugar into a blender and give it a whirl. It turns it into powder.

I'm such a big fan of Kreeli's Strwberry Almond Triple Layer Cake. I can't say enough about it. My husband has told my we have to have this cake every week. My 3yr old son asked for this cake for his birthday. It's very pretty too, if you cut the strawberries so they look like hearts.
