cake recipe

- adapted from my vegan cookbook:

1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup water
2 tbs earth balance butter
2 tbs coconut oil

*this makes just enough for one layer. for the above cake, i made this recipe 3 times, once for each round cake layer (don’t try to double it!).

directions

preheat the oven to 350 degrees. combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl (flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and powder) and mix together.

in a seperate bowl, combine the wet ingredients (water, earth balance, coconut oil, vanilla, lemon juice) and mix together.

slowly pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredints and mix slowly until it is well combined. a few little lumps will remain.

pour the batter into a lightly greased cake pan and bake for 25-30 mintues, or until a knife can be inserted into the middle and come out clean.

remove and let cool for at least 30 minutes before icing.
