Vegan Cake for Potluck at the Park

vegancake

I whipped up a vegan chocolate cake for a potluck at Warner Park.   Some of my girlfriends and even a few guy friends are vegetarian / vegan. We at least TRY to eat plant based foods as often as possible and having vegan potlucks has really been fun. Several people make excellent fruit salads, veggie burgers and dogs, casseroles, vegetable “meat” loafs, soups and much, much more. I am not much of  a chef, or a cook for that matter, but  I do have a sweet tooth. I grabbed a recipe online for vegetarian cake and whas quite delighted at my results.

The recipe is fairly straight forward:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar

1 cup water

Basically I just had to add all the ingredients into a baking pan and then bake at 350 for about 40-45 minutes.  It came out moist and tasty.
