Spice Cake with Not Cream Cheese Frosting

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 cup warm water Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting:
5 tablespoons margarine, softened
8 ounces vegan cream cheese (I use Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8" square pan with parchment or Release foil or grease. Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Make 2 wells, add vanilla and oil to one and vinegar to another.
2. Pour the warm water over all, stir only until combined. Do not use an electric mixer, just beat with a spoon.
3. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes or until done. Let cool completely. For frosting, in a mixing bowl, beat together margarine and vegan cream cheese. Beat in vanilla. Stir in sugar. Beat until fluffy. Spread over cake.

This recipe turned out awesome  8)


oh man, i made this recipe into cupcakes, my fiance ate them QUICKLY!!!  I used less butter than the recipe called for...still came out yummy!!!


I made this as cupcakes for myself, 2 other vegans, and 2 omnivores, and they were awesome. The frosting is really really sweet though... it was also pretty thin, but I kind of liked having it real goopy. I also left out the vinegar because I didn't have any, and nothing bad happened. Oh and everyone thought they were amazing, so yep, awesome.
