Simplest Rich Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting Review


Simplest Rich Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting is from a pretty cool vegan recipe book called Sweet Utopia. The title says it all! SIMPLEST one bowl cake ever! Since I was only testing the recipe I made only half but I should have made more since the boys actually took the dish and ate right out of it!! I had to snap a quick picture before it was inhaled!


Chocolate Cake:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups soymilk
1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Frosting:
1 1/2 cups nondairy chocolate chips
1/3 cup vegan butter substitute
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted

To make the cake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and oil and flour two 8-inch round cake pans. Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Add the soymilk, oil, vinegar, and vanilla extract and stir until just combined. Pour evenly into the prepared pans and bake for about 28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on racks.

To make the frosting, melt the chocolate chips and vegan butter substitute in a double boiler over gently simmering water. Alternatively, place them in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at medium power for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for 25 seconds longer and stir until smooth. If necessary, microwave for an additional 25 seconds. Stir in the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Let the frosting cool for 8 to 10 minutes.
