This is one of the first vegan cakes I ever made, after a couple of personal tweaks it is now just perfect! If heated it becomes the most amazing chocolate fudge cake - fantastic with a scoop of soya ice cream or vegan cream! As you can see the one in the photo was for a birthday, but this is an "anytime" cake! Enjoy!
For an extra chocolaty kick, add a packet of choc chips!
I made this a few weeks ago and it was delicious but was quite flat so made two to give it some depth for a birthday cake. next time i made it I doubled the quantity but I left all the ingredients except the cocoa in the bowl as I ran out of cocoa powder and therefore had to wait a couple of hours before adding it and putting into two tins. to my surprise it rose in both tins beautifully and so i had last Satursday a huge mountain of a cake with double helpings of glaze!! Maybe the other ingredients react when left but its the only thing i did differently. It is amazing though and another friend who has a dairy free egg free little one like mine has asked for the recipe. Cannot recommend this cake highly enough Yum doesnt cover it!! - 23 May 2011
