Number of Servings: 12


    1 cup bran flakes
    1 cup water
    1/3 + 1/4 cup sugar
    1 egg
    .25 cup canola
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 tsp chocolate syrup
    1T lemon juice
    1 cup all purpose flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    .25 cup cocoa
    2T evaporated milk
    .5 tsp cinnamon
    .5 tsp salt


I got creative and made a cherry-tapioca icing for this one; it turned out pretty tasty.


Place bran, water, 1/3 cup sugar, egg, canola oil, vanilla, chocolate syrup, and lemon juice in mixing bowl.

Mix lightly.

Let stand for 30-45 minutes.

Combine flour, baking soda, cocoa, 1/4 cup sugar, evaporated milk, cinnamon and salt in a second mixing bowl and stir to blend well.

Add flour mixture to bran mixture and mix at medium speed about 30 seconds or until well-blended.

Place in greased 9" square cake pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes (cake will spring back when touched in the center and sides will pull away from the pan).

Cool before serving.
