Poor Mans Cake

What you need: 

3 cup flour
2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoon cocoa powder
12 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoon vinegar
2 cup water or coffee

What you do: 

Sift the flour, vegan sugar, soda, salt, and cocoa into an ungreased cake pan. Make 2 wells in the dry ingredients. Put the vinegar in one well and the oil in the other. Pour the water or coffee over the whole thing and mix well with a fork. Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
This recipe makes a 13x9 inch pan; for an 8x8 inch pan, cut it exactly in half. My mother used to make this for us kids, and it is one of the best cakes I have ever had. I guarantee that even your dedicatedly carnivorous friends won't be able to tell that its vegan!
