Chocolate Cake Recipe

I made this cake for Jeff's birthday this year and, as Portal so aptly put it, it was so delicious and moist. This recipe comes from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's excellent recipe book, The Joy of Vegan Baking. Her recipe for the accompanying frosting can be found here.

Makes one 23cm cake or 8 cupcakes

1 1/2 cups plain flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp bi-carb
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup canola oil
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 cup water

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and lightly oil cake tin.

2. Mix flour, sugar, salt, bi-carb, and cocoa in a bowl until thoroughly combined.

3. Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the vanilla, oil, vinegar, and water. Mix until just combined.

4. Pour into cake tin and bake for 30 minutes (15 minutes for cupcakes) or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

5. Cool completely before frosting.

Happy eating! :)
