    This is only for the cake. Was my first vegan cake, making for a friend. I was surprised at how moist and crumbly it turned out. If I was vegan I would make again. Will keep this because it's quick, easy, and tastes great. - 10/12/11

  • STOP reading the nutritional content! It's cake people…Too many calories? Too much sugar? Then don't bake a bloody cake. Have a little common sense. Don't blame the baker. It's cake! - 9/24/14

  • I was looking for a recipe to take to work. I thought about this, then looked at the nutritional information. Eating one slice of this cake is the total amount of calories for one meal. I just cannot see myself sacrificing a meal choice for a slice of cake that would set me back a few weeks!!

  • This a great quick snack cake. It is also called a Depression cake. Just a hint, if you have some coffee available use it for the cup of water. It really intensifies the chocolate flavor without adding any coffee flavor. - 5/17/14

  • I made this cake twice and my family and co-workers loved it! They would not believe that it was vegan! It was delicious. You can try adding shaved coconut or crushed walnuts to the finished product! This cake is yummy and a keeper!
