Chocolate Cake with Icing

This is a old time favourite of mine. I have been doing this recipe for over 3 years now and every time it finishes on the same day. It doesn't miss absolutely anything from a non vegan chocolate cake. It is easy, quick and delicious.

115g raw cane sugar
4 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
170g flour (you can use either normal or wholewheat)
3/4 tsp baking soda
90ml vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp cider vinegar
200ml cold water

1) Mix the sugar, cocoa, salt, flour and soda in a mixing bowl.
2) Add the oil, vanilla essence and vinegar and pour cold water over the mixture.
3) Combine well with a fork, but do not beat.
4) Pour into a greased sandwich tin and bake it at 180C for 20-30 minutes.

55g vegan margarine
30g cocoa
4 tbs soya milk (you can also almond milk, it is delicious)
140g sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence

1) Combine the first four ingredients in a saucepan and bring them to the boil slowly, stirring constantly.
2) Boil for one minute.
3) Remove from the heat and beat until cold. Add the vanilla essence and spread the icing on the cake.

I am sure you are going to impress your friends and family. Enjoy!!!
