Vegan Cake
hi. this recipe was shared by a former co-worker at a san francisco 
law firm. on "cake day" she'd always bring a vegan treat ... and this 
one disappeared quickly.

basic cake: 
 
  dry ingredients:
1   amp 1/2 cups unbleached flour (i use unbleached organic flour)
1 cup  natural sugar
1 tsp  baking soda
1/2 tsp  salt
 
  wet ingredients:
1 cup  cold water
1 Tbsp  vinegar
1/4 cup  vegetable oil, applesauce or a combination of the 2
1 tsp  pure vanilla
 
preheat oven to 350 degrees. lightly grease an 8 or 9 inch baking 
dish. set aside. in a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. in a 
small bowl (or in a 2 cup measuring cup) mix wet ingredients together. 
add wet ingredients to the dry and mix with a fork or an electric 
mixer until well mixed. pour into prepared pan and bake for 30-35 
minutes. 
 
 
variations: 
 
chocolate chip cake: sprinkle 1/3-2/3 cups of chocolate chips on top 
of the cake before baking. 
 
chocolate cake: add 1/4 cup cocoa powder to the dry ingredients. for 
double chocolate cake, sprinkle some chocolate chips on top of the 
cake before baking. try using almond extract instead of vanilla for a 
nice flavor. 
 
spice cake: add 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp allspice, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 
and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the dry ingredients. omit the vanilla from the 
wet ingredients. 
 
ginger molasses cake: reduce sugar and water to 3/4 cup. add 1 tsp 
cinnamon, 1 tsp allspice, 1-3 tsp ginger (or 1 tbsp fresh grated 
ginger) to the dry ingredients. add 1/4 cup molasses to the wet 
ingredients and omit the vanilla. 
 
banana cake: reduce sugar to 2/3 cup. instead of 1 cup water, use 1 
cup mashed banana and a little nondairy milk if the batter is too 
thick. 
 
  all the cakes can be doubled in size. use a 9x13 inch pan and bake
35 - 45   minutes (check with a knife or toothpick)
