My Daughter was working, when I took this one into her, she only came home with half of it, the other workers loved it. Even if it was a vegan recipe

Ingredients Nutrition

  7. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Cool adequately if frosting or adding topping**.
  9. *To grease the pan I use 1-2 tsp of non hydrogenated vegan margarine because it gives the cake a little richness without adding a lot of fat.
  10. ** For a nice low-fat topping I put crushed pineapple on top.
