Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
Fantastic! I made this recipe as cupcakes for my sister's birthday party for her vegan husband. I had baked a regular birthday cake for my sister but I wanted my brother in law to have something sweet to finish off the meal, too. Well, they were a huge hit! I did change the recipe a bit: I increased it to 1/3 cup of cocoa powder, added 2 teaspoons of vanilla not just 1 and substituted balsamic vinegar for the white vinegar and it was delicious! After they cooled, I just dusted the top with a bit of powdered sugar and my brother in law loved it. He said that usually vegan baked goods leave a lot to be desired but he said these were "fantastic." Even the meat- and dairy-eaters among loved them. I made them again for a dinner party we're having tonight and they are just as tasty as they were the first time. thanks for the great recipe!

Allie's Awesome Easy Spice Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
Awesome! My mother's 80th birthday party was tonight & she loves spice cake. I usually get a box of cake mix, but I thought I'd try to make a spice cake from scratch for her big day. So, I tried this recipe: it was a huge hit! I varied a little from the recipe, however. I used a can of organic apple pie filling that was just apples and water (I was a bit leery of using canned apple pie filling because of the additives), so I added some extra spice to the mixture to make up for the un-spiced apple filling: allspice & ginger. It turned out fantastic. Don't be alarmed if the cake is a bit dark though. I really thought I had burned it but it tasted great. I also added a bit of cream cheese glaze (4 oz. cream cheese, 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla & 2 tblsp. of milk). Thanks for the great recipe!
