This is just the cake recipe, it's very quick and simple to make but it is delicious. You can cover it in frosting like we did for Ginger's birthday or you can try vegan options like sprinkling powdered sugar on it, making a glaze of powdered sugar and water or just drizzling some chocolate syrup on top. The thing is, this cake is very rich and delicious all by itself and doesn't need any thing extra.
|Chocolate Cake with White Frosting and Faux Dog Treats|
1 1/2 Cups flour
1 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup cocoa (dark cocoa is good, add up to 3/4 cup for serious chocaholics)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 Cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional, brandy works also or leave it out entirely)
1 Cup water or leftover coffee
1 teaspoon vinegar (use balsamic for a richer flavor)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a small square or round cake pan with oil then flour to prevent sticking.
Mix all ingredients together in a batter bowl. Pour into the pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Since this recipe does not contain eggs you can lick the batter from the bowl as the cake is cooking.
