    Shannon Holmes's Note:

    This is the best chocolate cake and this frosting goes well with it. I like this cake as it contains no eggs and can be made with things I have on hand. The cake recipe is the Moosewood Cake and the frosting is a modified Hershey recipe. The original Moosewood Cake has 1/2 cup oil and no applesauce and I think it is better made with applesauce for half of the oil.

    Mocha Frosting


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Generously oil an 8-inch square or round baking pan and dust with a little sifted cocoa or line the bottom with parchment paper.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, soda, salt, and sugar.
    4. 4
      In another bowl, combine the oil, applesauce water or coffee, and vanilla.
    5. 5
      Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well-blended and smooth.
    6. 6
      Add the vinegar and stir briefly; the baking soda will begin to react with the vinegar right away, leaving pale swirls in the batter.
    7. 7
      Without wasting any time, pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
    8. 8
      Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
    9. 9
      Cool for 20 minutes, then frost with frosting.
    10. 10
      For the frosting, combine powdered sugar, cocoa, butter and vanilla in large bowl; beat until combined.
    11. 11
      Dissolve 1 teaspoons instant coffee in 1 tablespoons milk and add to frosting.
    12. 12
      Add additional milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating to desired consistency.
    13. 13
      About 1-1/4 cups frosting.
    14. 14
      For Vegan use only soy milk and only a vegan [non dairy] margarine.
