“I love chocolate and this easy dessert really is a winner with my family. Its really chocolaty and satisfies my sweet tooth. I made my cake in two 8" round cake tins, but you can use other tins as I've mentioned in the directions. If you use ground flax as your egg substitute mix 2 tbsp. ground flax seeds with 6 tbsp. water, that equals 2 eggs. Make sure you let this sit until the flax is like a gooey liquid. Beat it with a hand mixer to help it congeal.”

Directions

  1. PRE-PREPARATIONS:
  2. Preheat your oven to 350'F.
  3. Prepare your baking pan(s). Make sure you grease them well and put parchment on the bottom of the pans. This cake can stick.
  4. You can use a tub pan. If you do, bake this for one hour.
  5. You can use a 9 x 13 rectangular pan, if you do bake for 45 minutes.
  6. If you use 2 round 8" cake pans bake for 30-35 minutes.
  7. Not all ovens are the same so cooking times may vary slightly.
  8. After the cake is done, check it with a skewer by sticking it in the middle of the cake. If its done, the skewer will come out clean.
  9. NOW FOR THE CAKE:
  10. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  11. Mix the wet ingredients together well and add to the dry ingredients. Mix together until totally combined and smooth.
  12. Put the batter into your prepared pan(s) and bake according to the above directions:
  13. FOR THE CREAM CHEESE ICING:
  14. In a deep narrow bowl beat the cream cheese, margarine, vanilla and sea salt together well until it is a creamy mixture.
  15. Add the cocoa and mix thoroughly. You could leave the cocoa out if you want a white icing.
  16. Add the powdered sugar until the icing is the consistency you like. I prefer mine somewhat stiff, but its up to you.
  17. Once the cake(s) are totally cooled ice them and put into the fridge to set up for about 1 hour.
  18. Cut yourself a big slice and enjoy with your favourite beverage.
  19. Bon Appetit!
