A friend and i are baking a cake for our vegan friend and i'm looking or something that's moist, chocolatey, and well... delicious.
I've never made anything vegan or for that matter eaten anything vegan other than the whole food chocolate chip cookies which were so rock hard we threw one out the window of our car only to have it bounce back at us.
Suffice it to say i'm hoping for a non-rock like bouncing cake.
I've found quite a few recipes but not sure what to make of them. all of the cakes i've ever made from scratch sound nothing like the recipes i've found. from past experience i've found that a combination of baking chocolate and cocoa powder is far better than the recipes that use just cocoa powder.
Anyone have any suggestions? or recipes? i'd greatly appreciate the help.
also if no recipes in the past my vegan friend has baked and substituted banana for eggs and used soy milk and vegan butter for the usual animal products in regular recipes so just wondering if this was a possibility as i have MANY cake recipes i can use if that is the case.
