You are the best baker Mommy!!!!

Sitting at home sick and in the front of the television is not really fun, as much as it may sound like it. My 3 yr old and I were home alone  and having laryngitis did not help, as he had many questions that needed immediate answers. I thought of a way to distract him and rest my poor throat.

As I sat there, the idea of baking a chocolate cake popped into my head (yep, I was bored). I remembered seeing a recipe for a vegan chocolate cake on the web and it had a weird name that I could not remember. So I looked it up and it was called Wacky Chocolate Cake. In the last month, we have been trying out vegan receipes and I have to say that I am impressed. I used to wonder what they actually ate (bushes, beans and shrubs…LOL) and seriously how Nutritious could it be, if there was no meat involved?  My APOLOGIES to all the vegans out there (including my neice), because after doing my research I cannot go into the supermarket and buy chicken and milk anymore without gagging (more on that later).

So, since I was never a big meat eater and when I did, it was mainly chicken (organic), some fish, sometimes shrimp, rarely goat meat, I hate and  despise ( did I say hate? yup) beef and pork and some turkey but the ground kind.  I hated most vegetables, but have found a new way of dishing it up.  So having said all that, back to my experiment. We headed to the kitchen in the midst of more questions…LOL.  Are you going to bake a cake mommy? What kind of cake mommy? Is it going to be good mommy? Are you using those chocolate chips? Can I taste it?  ARRGHH!!! where is daddy when you need him to answer the endless questions.  Anyway here is my version of the WACKY CHOCOLATE CAKE

Wacky chocolate chip chocolate cake

  1. 1 1/2 cup unbleached flour
  2. 1 cup brown sugar (demarara)
  3. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  4. a pinch of salt
  5. 1/2 cup of vegan chocolate chip (all the recipes that I had seen called for cocoa, but I had none)
  6. 6-8 tablespoon of canola oil
  7. 1 tbs of apple cider vinegar
  8. 1 cup of water                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Method

I measure out and combine the dry ingredients and since I don’t have a food processor I melted the chocolate chips, then added the vinegar and oil and mixed that into the dry ingredients along with the water. This was poured into a greased and lightly floured 9 inch pie dish and baked for 30 mins at 350 degrees F.     I had some concerns about the finish product as :

1) The baking soda was real old (no! I will not tell you how old…LOL)

2) If the taste of the vinegar would be detectable).

Well, it came out great, moist and soft with no vinegar taste and was declared a winner by my 3 yr old as he thinks I am the best baker around these parts.  He went to bed happy and was  probably dreaming about the chocolate cake fairy. Needless to say, I resumed watching the television and rested my throat in peace.

  1. Archaeologists have dated cacao as chocolate being eaten by the Mayan Indians of Mexico as early as 600 CE. The cocoa bean had been worshipped by the Mayans as a heavenly gift. The beans were put on a pedestal and worshipped as an idol. In its raw form, chocolate is more addictive than heroin. Scientists currently study how chocolate addiction changes the brain, and which chemicals are released by the brain by eating chocolate.
