Vegan Chocolate Cake

Submitted by: CATETHEGREAT


Number of Servings: 14

Ingredients

    FOR THE CAKE :
    1 1/4 cups flour
    1 cup sugar
    1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup warm water
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1 tsp distilled white or apple cider vinegar

    FOR THE GLAZE:
    1/2 cup sugar
    4 tbsp vegan butter spread (or real butter if you're an omni)
    2 tbsp soy milk (or regular milk if you're an omni)
    2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, then grease an 8X8 square pan/dish.

Step 2: Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt with a whisk, making sure it is really blended together. Add the water, vanilla, oil, and vinegar, and again, mix until it's really well blended. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl if necessary.

Step 3: Pour the mixture into the pan and place in oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on a rack completely (about 2 hours).

Step 4: For the glaze, in a small saucepan, bring sugar, butter spread, soy milk, and cocoa to a boil. Stir frequently; then reduce heat to a simmer for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir for another 5 minutes. Don't leave this step out, it will make your glaze grainy.

Step 5: Add vanilla, stir, and immediately pour onto cake. Glaze dries really quickly, so spread it immediately and add any sprinkles or topping now. Cool for one hour.
Makes 14 slices.
