MoFo you ask?
Vegan Month of Food...get your mind out of the gutter I wasn't talking about THAT kind of mofo.
I am very excited and a little nervous as most bloggers will post every day of the month...YIKES!
To make things more complex I am also doing the October Unprocessed 2012 challege (where I eat food that I either make myself or COULD make myself using whole foods NO processed foods).
I know I can do this.
I know I can talk about all things vegan and unprocessed for one month.
So to start things off I have Hershey's chocolate cake veganized.
It had to be a dessert because the chocolate will calm my nerves as I prep for what lies ahead.
Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Cake
2 C sugar
1 3/4 C all purpose unbleached flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 C almond milk (I chose unflavored)
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 C cocoa powder (I used Ghiradelli)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 ener-G egg replacer eggs
1/2 C vegetable oil
1 C boiling water
Grease two 9-inch round cake pans.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put all of your dry ingredients in a bowl and mix with a fork.
Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla (beat for about 2 minutes).
Add in your boiling water. This will make your batter very thin...but trust me the result is AWESOME!
Bake the cakes for 30-35 minutes
"Perfectly Chocolate" chocolate frosting
1 stick Earth Balance
2/3 C cocoa
3 C powdered sugar
1/3 C almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Melt your Earth Balance and then stir in your cocoa.
Alternate adding powdered sugar and milk. If you think the frosting is too thick add just bit more milk. For mine the 1/3 C milk was perfect.
Add in your vanilla (you should have about 2 cups of frosting) and then spread on your cooled cake.
I added some candles because tomorrow is my birthday.
I encourage you to check out the other bloggers participating in Vegan MoFo maybe it will inspire you to replace some of your conventional foods with vegan friendly options.
