Easy Vegan Chocolate Cake

What you need: 

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups water
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Thoroughly mix dry ingredients first (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt).
3. Mix in wet ingredients (water, vegetable oil, vinegar, and vanilla). Continue mixing until you obtain an even batter (no lumps).
4. Pour into a cake pan and bake for approximately 40 minutes.
I recommend topping the cake with Chocolate Frosting by Sarah.

Blushinmuffin, is that a tofu frosting you've used on your cake?  It looks really delish.

I hope you see this because I can't send you a message ;)

Made this cake the other day and used a "buttercream" frosting recipe also from this site- OHMIGOD!!! You'd never know it was 'vegan.' It barely lasted a day in our house! For what its worth I used a straight substitution of distilled vinear for apple cidar vinegar which seemed to work out just fine!

I've never had a vegan cake that was so good! THis is probably the best vegan cake out there, very good, and very easy to make. Everyone who tired some vegan, or not enjoyed it very much, I plan on making it again for Easter tomorrow.

Holy Bejeezus.  I'm new to veganism and was really, really impressed with how good this cake was.  My carnivorian family scarfed it down, too.

This was a very easy recipe to follow.  My daughter has food allergies so I was happy to find this recipe.  It was a hit at her party with the kids and the adults.  I added a little bit of cinnamon to my recipe. :)

I'm not sure how or if you even can edit responses.  In any case, for my post above I take the recipe X 1.5 so that it fills up 2- 10" pans.  Just an FYI for ya. ;D  I realized this today when I needed to check this recipe because I need to make another birthday cake.
