1/3 cup cocoa powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 cup sugar

½ cup vegetable oil

1 cup cold water/coffee

2 tsp vanilla

2 tbs vinegar



Frosting:



2 ounces unsweetened chocolate

¼ cup smooth peanut butter

3 tbs water

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup confectioners sugar





Instructions:

-----------------------------------------------------

For Cake:



Heat oven to 350. Mix together all ingredients but vinegar. Mix in vinegar, immediatly put into oven. Cook ~35 minutes.



For Frosting:



Melt chocolate, either in double broiler/heavy saucepan or microwave. Stir. Mix together remaining ingredients.

-----------------------------------------------------

Smooth peanut butter looks better. I used a round cake pan, and waited until the cake and frosting were both cool to frost.

I posted this origionaly... It looks weird cause half the ingredients are for the cake, half for the frosting...



2 ounces unsweetened chocolate

¼ cup smooth peanut butter

3 tbs water

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup confectioners sugar



Those are the frosting ingredients.

I love this cake, I make mine with 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil instead of all oil.

You can also make it with Splenda and sugar (1/2 cup each).

Thanks for this recipe! I made this on the weekend for my friend's party where we all had to bring something vegan. It was so easy to make! I made them into cupcakes instead of a full cake - I also sprinkled dessicated coconut and little chocolate sprinkles on top of the icing.

They were sooooo nice! Such a good recipe - thanks again

Quick question water/coffee thats either or correct?

Also quick note I heated up the PB and drizzled it across cake pretty easy to do and add some flare.

I made this cake today, very yummy and gooey. I didn't have unsweetened chocolate, but the frosting is still very good. Also I only had red wine vinegar, and that worked just as fine (and took the suggestion of using substituting applesauce). Thanks!

I used the cake part of this recipe, and it came out great! I made cupcakes. For cupcakes, 20 minutes in the oven is enough.

Doesn't veggie oil have an animal thing in it? Sounds yummy though.

8/3/2010 is the last time I consumed meat.
8/4/2010 is when I became a full blown Vegetarian and I couldn't be more proud.

It shouldn't. Vegetable oil is an alternative to animal fats/oils. My vegetable oil has only one ingredient listed: soybean oil.

I made this cake today (not the icing). It was awesome, and my sister said it was the best cake ive made so far.
the only difference i made was that i wanted to make a chocolate orange cake (and google kept throwing up recipes with soygurt in it) so i used OJ instead of water. it didnt taste like orange at all, oh well was still good!

Oh my! I need to try this! Coffee in chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting sounds like a wonderful idea...

I suck at melting chocolate. Can I use cocoa? Or does dark chocolat melt better than milk?

I used to avoid soy but ill consume a little if its organic and fermented lol

Love this cake!
Just want to point out for those making this for the first time--
Mix all dry ingrediants together, and all liquid ingrediants together in separate bowls. Have oven preheated, and pans ready before combining. The baking soda and vinegar should be mixed just before popping in the oven or it won't rise well.
The instructions just call for mixing in vinegar at end, which I would think wouldn't mix completely by itself.

Must try PB frosting!

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

I'm totally making this into cupcakes!
I spent a lot of time looking for a vegan peanut butter frosting that didn't need a butter alternative, it's not available where I live.

Just found this. My birthday is next month and I've been looking for a vegan birthday cake to make. I have a tendency to eat a lot of unhealthy junk food on my birthday so I'm trying to make my own vegan stuff that is healthier. At least I know what ingredients are in it.
