This was my very first vegan baked good I ever made, for my mom's birthday last year. I know I said I would post it last week, so now that you've waited this long it'll taste even better!! Enjoy!
Choco Cake Ingredients:
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
Choco Glaze ingredients:
1/2 cup sugar
4 tbsp margarine
2 tbsp soy milk
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In an 8x8 square pan/dish, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt with a fork, making sure it's really blended together. Then mix in the water, vanilla, oil, and vinegar until it's completely incorporated. Use a spatula to scrapes the sides if necessary.
Place in oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on a rack completely (2 hours).
For the glaze, bring sugar, margarine, milk and cocoa to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir frequently, then reduce heat to a simmer for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir for another 5 minutes. Add vanilla, stir and then immediately pour onto the cake (it dries quickly, so spread it fast). If you can, let this cool for an hour before serving.
