Easy Chocolate Cake
This is my daughter's favourite and most requested dessert - Chocolate Cake from The Joy of Vegan Baking. I love this recipe because it's so fast and easy to put together. If you double the recipe it makes a bundt cake and is also great for cupcakes. I always have the ingredients in my pantry, it doesn't require any egg replacer just flour, salt, sugar, cocao, baking soda, vinegar, vanilla, water and oil. The cake itself is not too rich on it's own but if you make the chocolate buttercream icing to go with it, the decadance factor goes up a notch. We enjoy it both ways. I don't often get a photo of this cake because it gets eaten too quickly and that means as soon as it's out of the oven, I am being pestered for a piece. As you can see from this photo, there is a slice missing.
