Happy Chocolate Cake + Icing

Standard

I love this cake, you will too. Enjoy!

Cake
Combine wet ingredients:

1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup milk or soy milk

Combine dry ingredients:
2/3 cup arrowroot starch
1/3 cup rice flour
3/4 cup amaranth flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Add dry to wet and mix. Stir in 1 cup boiling water. Pour into a greased and floured cake pan* and bake at 350 until knife comes out clean (check it around the 40 minute mark and go from there).

*be sure to grease AND flour the pan… don’t just do one or it will end badly (I learned the hard way)

Icing
1 1/4 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp soy milk
3 tbsp. whipped margarine (the vegan hippie kind)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. cocoa
Beat with egg beaters until it looks like icing – add more icing sugar if you want it to be thicker.
