After looking at all this cake on the IF site, and the rain out the window, I thought I may as well make one.
Here's what it came out like:
The recipe is very simple and delicious and completely vegan:
Sieve 3 glasses Self Raising Flour, I glass sugar, 3 heaped teaspoons of bakjing powder and 2 tablespoons of Cocoa powder into a bowl.
Mix 3/4 glass sunflower oil, 1 glass soya milk, and some vanilla or almond essence (this time I added a splash of blueberry juice too for fun).
Mix it all together and pour into a cake tin. Bake on 180 degrees for 45 - 60 mins until you can poke a fork in there and it comes out without sticky gunk on it.
Cover with melted chocolate or icing or whatever (for this one I made icing with fresh lemon juice and put plain chocolate shavings on the top).
I also decided to draw the resulting cake (click for larger image):
BTW - If that isn't enough cake for everyone this week, I also listened to the album 'Pressure Chief' by Cake when painting this.
