Vegan Chocolate Cake

This is a request from one of Erin’s Army. Now, a little background about all of the new recipes I try: 90% of the time someone other than me has to taste what I make and like it and approve it before I post it. Organ meat and exotic stuff excluded. Erin’s Elderberries staff are some of my favorite crash test dummies. Now, this lady at Erin’s is vegan and never gets to try anything I make. That said, I feel sorry every time I make something, and she is unable to try it. So she asked if I had ever made vegan cake. So here is my try at vegan chocolate cake. I hope she likes it. (She did – that is why I posted it, Duh.)
