Vegan Chocolate Cake

Let me start off by saying that just because this cake is vegan does NOT make it healthy. I made it for Cosette’s first birthday even though we were both unable to partake, well she did put her fingers in the icing and sure enjoyed that! I also found an icing that was fabulous and made with maple syrup! Enjoy!

Vegan Chocolate Cake
3 cups flour
1.5 cups sugar
6 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

2 cups water
3/4 cup coconut oil
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350┬║. Thoroughly mix the dry ingredients, then add the wet and mix until well blended. I baked my cake in a 9×13 for about 25-30 mins. Grease and flour pan first.

Chocolate Frosting (found on vegweb)
1/4-1/3 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp water
1/3 cup cocoa
2 tbsp coconut oil

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend well. You need to put icing on a cool cake and put in the fridge to let it sit before serving. The coconut oil solidifies and gives the icing a nice consistency.
