GREAT vegan cake recipe!!!

The basic recipe:

  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. oil (I use 1/4 plus water)
  • 1 c. sugar (I like 1/2-3/4 c.)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 scant cup soy/ricemilk/water (water works fine)
Bake at 375 for 30 min. in greased pan.

Note:
this is a small recipe.
I'd double it for 4 servings, triple it if your house likes cake!
(I've made 4 versions of this cake in the past two weeks for my house, and each disappeared overnight!)

Variations:

Sweet and Light Lemon Cake:
add 1/4-1/2 c. lemon juice instead of the water/ricemilk (that's for a double or triple recipe)

Orange Cake:
add 2 c. OJ instead of water and cut back sugar (for a double recipe)

Torte:
cut 1 or 2 apples into slices and lay them on top. you can sprinkle with cinnamon and/or sugar if you'd like.

PLUMS actually wok really well like this - cut them in half...you need about 10.
(again, this is for a double or triple recipe).
be sure to make this in a large round pan for the right look.
you may also want to use the full quantity of oil so that it's richer (instead of eggs, you know).
I can't wait to impress my non-veggie friends with this.
Who says you can't make great vegan cake!!
