I truly admire my daughter, Maddy, for her ability to choose a vegan lifestyle and stick to it the way that she does. We have a lot of family dinners around here and there are sometimes very few choices for her to eat, even though I try to make sure there are some vegan choices. Also, there are a lot of temptations! Just yesterday we had a big dinner and there was delicious Texas Sheet Cake! Definitely not vegan and Maddy had to pass on it as she ate her rice and fruit choices. I felt bad for her, even though she was uncomplaining. I know that I do not have that kind of will power. Well, while I searched for my Texas Sheet Cake recipe, I came across another old recipe that I had forgotten about. It is this Goofy Chocolate Cake that has no eggs, no milk and can easily be sweetened in a vegan way. Since there were many people here yesterday and the Texas Cake is just about gone, I decided to make up this cake this morning as a surprise for Madalynn! She deserves a reward.
Besides not containing any eggs or dairy products, this recipe is inexpensive to make! When you are out of eggs and milk, you can still have chocolate cake that is delicious! It rises very well and is fluffy and super chocolaty. I think that the secret to the rise is the combination of vinegar and baking soda. We all know what those ingredients do in science project volcanoes! Don't worry, you don't taste the vinegar at all, just the delicious chocolate taste that comes from the cocoa powder used in this recipe.
You can frost the cake however you would like, of course. Just remember that if you are keeping it vegan not to use dairy in your frosting! Here are a few alternatives:
I love chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, so I used the almond milk alternative for Maddy's cake.
This cake is rich and moist. I believe that it can rival any chocolate cake out there! I don't think Maddy will have to eat the entire thing on her own.
