Time* Cake (Chocolate)
Where I live, it’s the start of summer, and so I decided to celebrate by baking a Time Cake! You can bake one too. No fancy ingredients or special tools needed. This cake is 100% meat-free, and… it’s even vegan. The cows and chickens are happy.
(Recipe adapted from http://www.thehungrymouse.com/)
3 cups flour
2 cups white, brown, or coconut sugar
1/2 cup 100% pure cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. sea, iodized, or kosher salt
3/4 cup olive, canola, or coconut oil
2 Tbls. white or apple cider vinegar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups water
optional: vegan dark chocolate syrup
Lightly coat a cake pan with extra oil. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Put the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk until uniform.
Add rest of ingredients (all the wet ones).
Mix until batter is batter-like.
Do NOT overmix.
Pour and scrape batter into prepared pan. Bake 35 – 40 minutes.
In time, the cake should pass the spring-back test. Let cake cool completely before messing with it.
Optionally swirl with chocolate syrup.

Right after I took this cake out of the oven, my hubby came home and said, “It smells like pizza in here!” Obviously my hubby experienced a temporal abnormality. Your results may vary. If you’re brave enough to bake this Time Cake, let me know if you or your housemates experienced any temporal abnormalities in the comments below!
