Happy birthday mom.
And she requested my vegan chocolate cake.
not my cake, but a visual aid usually piques my interest in a recipe.
It's not actually mine, if you google "absurdly easy vegan chocolate cake" you'll find it.
Originally a Grange recipe from the depression era when milk and eggs were in short supply.
Very simple, very good.
* 3 cups flour
* 2 cups sugar
* 6 tablespoons cocoa
* 2 teaspoons baking soda
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 3/4 cup vegetable oil
* 2 tablespoon vinegar
* 2 teaspoon vanilla
* 2 cup cold water
Mix the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients. Stir until smooth. Bake in two greased, floured pans at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Makes two layers of a two-layer 9-inch or 8-inch round cake, or medium small sheet cake. When cool, frost it.
I usually spread raspberry jam in between the layers.
