      I made this cake for my son's birthday, and all the guests raved about it!

      However, it was definitely better the first day (made fresh for the party) than it was the next day when it developed a bit of a baking soda flavor. Make fresh (it's very simple) and enjoy!

      Absolutely amazing cake! I am lactose intolerant and eggs are hit and miss so it was great to find a tasty chocolate cake that doesn't use either ingredient. My husband also loved it even though it was vegan. I did make a simple frosting and think it added a bit of sweetness since this isn't an overly sweet recipe.

      Quick, easy and tasty too. I needed something vegan for my FIL and this fit the bill perfectly. I like that it uses pantry staples and can be made in a flash. The cake is moist and isn't overly sweet.
