Fantastic cake! I didn't tell anyone that it was vegan so they wouldn't prejudge the cake. They loved it and were shocked to know it was vegan! Simple recipe to make, relatively cheap ingredients...this one is a keeper. I used a 1/2 cup of cocoa instead of the listed 1/4 cup and baked it in a 9" circle cake pan that I lined with parchment paper and dusted with flour. It took about 35 minutes to fully cook. For a vegan 'buttercream' frosting I mixed together 1/4 cup softened margerine, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, and about half a tablespoon soymilk or enough to make the consistensy spreadable. Hope this helps someone! Happy Baking!

I made this cake last night and it was wonderful. I replaced the white sugar for 3/4 cup of honey, used WW flour and used applesause for the oil.

This cake was deeee-licious. I've found that if you make it the day before you want to eat it, it is even better. (it actually seems a little more moist when it is not REALLY fresh). I have also taken the advice of another reviewer and made this cake without the cocoa, adding 2 mashed bananas and replacing the vanilla with banana extract. It turned out like banana bread and was fantastic frosted with banana frosting(1 cup powdered beet sugar, 1 tsp banana extract, 1/4 cup margerine and 1 tbsp. soy milk beaten until smooth and fluffy)
