Vegan Chocolate Cake.

Inspired by earth day articles touting the glory of going vegan I decided to make this delicious vegan chocolate cake. The recipe has been passed down to me from my mother in law. I considered keeping it a secret but this cake is too good not to share!
The cinnamon sugar on top creates a crust that accentuates the moist fluffy cake underneath.

Oven 350

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup canola oil/ veg. oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups cold coffee
2 tablespoons vinegar
cinnamon sugar mix

In large bowl mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt until well combined
Add oil. vinegar, vanilla and coffee and stir until combined
Pour into a 9x 13 glass baking dish and spread until even
sprinkle with 1/3 cup cinnamon sugar (1 tablespoon cinnamon added to 1/3 cup sugar)
Bake for 25- 30 minutes until toothpick comes out clean

Serve with strawberries and chocolate sauce or vanilla ice cream or just serve as is.
