Wacky Cake is an easy chocolate cake made right in the pan. Moist and delicious, serve with a little soy whipped cream or dairy-free ice cream.
2 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
4 T cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sweetener (raw sugar, agave nectar, or maple, rice or barley syrup)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 Tbs vinegar (apple cider, balsamic)
4 T oil
5 T unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 cups water
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a 9 x 13 baking dish, mix all of the dry ingredients with a fork. Add the wet ingredients and continue mixing thoroughly. Place the dish in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until the top bounces back slightly when touched or when a toothpick comes out clean.
Best eaten within 1-2 days of baking, top with dairy-free ice cream, soy whipped cream or frosting.
