Easy Vegan Chocolate Cake

What you need: 

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups water
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Thoroughly mix dry ingredients first (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt).
3. Mix in wet ingredients (water, vegetable oil, vinegar, and vanilla). Continue mixing until you obtain an even batter (no lumps).
4. Pour into a cake pan and bake for approximately 40 minutes.
I recommend topping the cake with Chocolate Frosting by Sarah.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

mnvegan, I'm wondering how did u make your rum chocolate vegan genache???

its really easy...i use a bittersweet chocolate and chop it up finely.  then take Silk Creamer (be sure to use the plain and not French vanilla or hazelnut)... and bring it to a boil in a double broiler or you can just use a regular pan if you watch it so it doesn't burn.  once it boils, pour it into a bowl over the finely chopped chocolate and let sit for about 45 seconds to melt the chocolate.  whisk it together and add rum to flavor i used 1 cup creamer, 1 cup chocolate, and 1-2 tablespoons dark rum.

AMAZING!!! SOOOO easy to make. This cake tastes better than ANY other cake I have tasted.
Just when I thought it couldn't get any better I spread on the choco frosting from Sally, unbelievable.

Because of my high altitude I put in about 1/3 cup more flour. I used regular cocoa powder and black onyx cocoa powder.
Next time I think I will half this recipe because I ended up with a lot of batter.

OMG i made this and totally modified it and put in 2 Tsp of cinnamon and 1 Tsp of ground ancho chillis.  i then made it into two 8 inch cakes and stacked them with a layer of cherries between them and covered it with a dark fum flavored vegan ganache....it was to die for...

This recipe is really good. It's one of the best chocolate cakes that i have ever tasted and i'm not that big on cake. The texture is very good also. Nice and spongy like a cake should be. I give it 4 stars.  :)
