Absurdly Easy Vegan Chocolate Cake


Not only is this recipe easy, it also happens to be vegan (no animal products used). Originally a Grange recipe from the depression era. Eggs in short supply, y'know.

Thanks to Daniel S. for the metric equivalents.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour (680 grams)
  • 2 cups sugar (450 grams) (read this first)
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa (100 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda (10 cc's = 10 ml)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (5 cc's = 5 ml)
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil (200 cc's)
  • 2 tablespoon vinegar (30 cc's)
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla (10 cc's)
  • 2 cup cold water (480 cc's)

Directions

Mix the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients. Stir until smooth. Bake two greased, floured pans at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Makes two layers of a two-layer 9-inch or 8-inch round cake, or one small sheet cake. When cool, frost it.

Eat.
