Easy Chocolate Cake

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sorrie Lue

This is the simplest cake I have ever made but you can easily dress it up and look impressive. I have been making this for over 20 years and only recently realized it's vegan! Just top with powdered sugar or fruit instead of whipped topping.

Not amazing, but pretty good. And great for how easy it is.
