good recipe. doubled baking soda and got a good rise. (i made cupcakes not a cake.) thought the flavor and texture were nice-- like non-vegan. but it wasn't as chocolately as i imagined it would be. (even with the switch of using basalmic instead of cider vinegar.) the flavor was more like red velvet than a standard chocolate cake.
