    Missy Wombat's Note:

    A Moosewood recipe. I usually make this without the glaze when the kids are requesting chocolate cake and they actually deserve a treat for dessert but I want something that doesn't require too much effort. And its great when you have run out of eggs!

      Sift the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and sugar into an ungreased 8 inch square or 9 inch round baking tin.
    3. 3
      In a 2 cup measuring cup, measure and mix the oil, water or coffee and vanilla.
    4. 4
      Pour the liquid ingredients into the baking tin and mix the batter with a fork or small whisk.
    5. 5
      When the batter is smooth, add the vinegar and stir quickly. Pale swirls will occur where the vinegar and baking soda react. Stir just until the vinegar is even distributed throughout the batter.

      What a great recipe for those with egg & milk allergies! One of my friends recommended it, and boy, am I glad she did! I used it to make chocolate and vanilla cupcakes (just replace cocoa powder with flour), and they came out wonderfully. They are moist inside and bounce back nicely when lightly pressed on top. I made these because one of my son's friends has a milk allergy, and I didn't want the little guy to feel left out when the rest of the group ate their cupcakes at my son's birthday party. Thanks so much for posting! This recipe will also come in handy when baking for my brother-in-law, who has a severe egg allergy. Note: I did not use the glaze recipe, but it looks yummy as well.

      This recipe only makes enough for a one-layer cake, so make sure to increase the ingredients as needed. I was surprised the vinegar didn't do anything weird to the cake. The result was a pretty decent chocolate cake, not too sweet. It's nice to have an egg-free option.

      I was very skeptical with this recipe at first, but oh my goodness, so good and easy to make. This is now my go-to recipe for chocolate cake. I can't believe it's easy and vegan too! FANTASTIC!!!
