Mayo Cake!

Posted by trktos on 6-September-2010

I finally got around to using my new bundt pan. I’ve had the thing for nearly two years … it might not qualify as new anymore.

Whipped up this chocolate cake – no one would ever guess its made with mayonnaise (vegan, of course).

Glazed with “chocolate sour cream glaze”, pretty much the same as the linked glaze recipe, except replacing the vegan cream cheese with vegan sour cream.

The bad thing about thicker glazes is they don’t pour over a cake very nicely. The good part, however, is they don’t glaze the plate!

Chocolate Bundt Cake

Posted by trktos on 22-August-2008

Very dense, moist and rich. Measurements are in grams – when I heavily adapt a recipe or make one up, I measure with a gram scale. (Sorry.)

Dry Ingredients:

  • 270 g powdered sugar
  • 70 g cocoa
  • 255 g all purpose flour
  • 1 generous tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 225 g granular sugar
  • 112 g earth balance
  • 130 g apple sauce
  • 215 g veganaise
  • 160 g soymilk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 ener-g eggs, see instructions

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and “cocoa” a 10″ bundt pan.
  3. Double-sift the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  4. Mixed the wet ingredients with an electric mixer.
  5. Prepare “eggs”:
    1/8 cup ener-g powder mixed well with 3/8 cup water, let sit until thick.
  6. Pour batter into pan and bake for 45-60 minutes or until cake tests done.
  7. Cool and glaze with Chocolate Cream Cheeze Glaze, if desired.

Notes:

  • adapted/veganized from this recipe.
  • This cake is really moist, even when the toothpick came out completely clean and the cake had started to pull away from the sides.
