Mississippi Mud Cake

This is a friend's recipe that I veganized. You frost it while it's hot, so it creates a super moist cake full of deliciousness. I also have it posted here on VegWeb, which is where I stole the picture from. Someone that tried it out was kind enough to take this lovely picture of it.

Mississippi Mud Cake


2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine, softened (Earth Balance works great)
1 cup water
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 egg replacers (like Ener-G)
1/2 cup plain soymilk + 1/2 Tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda


1/2 cup margarine
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons plain soymilk
pinch of salt
2 cups powdered sugar


In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar & salt. In a saucepan, bring the margarine, water & cocoa to a boil. Remove it from the heat and pour over sifted ingredients. Stir until smooth. In a separate bowl, beat together the rest of the ingredients, then add to the smoothed mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.Frost while hot!!! Bring all ingredients except for the powdered sugar to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and pour over the cake as soon as its out of the oven (some of the frosting seeps into the cake, making it extra moist).Let cool and serve.
