I'm loving this recipe. The batter is so smooth. Love not using eggs, butter or milk, now I can lick the spoon! I heated up Red Plumb Jam and drizzled it on top of the batter and it turned out so yummy.

Nice to have a cake recipe that doesn't use eggs, butter or milk. I've made this many times and I find I can cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup and it's still great,

The best chocolate cake I've ever eaten. I doubled the cocoa powder and vanilla, but wow! Great for vegans.

On the first glance at this recipe I was shocked: NO EGGS, NO MILK. As a vegan, I was impressed! It was very tasty also!
