DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Generously oil an 8-inch square or round baking pan and dust with a little sifted cocoa or line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, soda, salt, and sugar.
  • In another bowl, combine the oil, applesauce water or coffee, and vanilla.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well-blended and smooth.
  • Add the vinegar and stir briefly; the baking soda will begin to react with the vinegar right away, leaving pale swirls in the batter.
  • Without wasting any time, pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Cool for 20 minutes, then frost with frosting.
  • For the frosting, combine powdered sugar, cocoa, butter and vanilla in large bowl; beat until combined.
  • Dissolve 1 teaspoons instant coffee in 1 tablespoons milk and add to frosting.
  • Add additional milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating to desired consistency.
  • About 1-1/4 cups frosting.
  • For Vegan use only soy milk and only a vegan [non dairy] margarine.
