I love cake!  I've never really tried to make a vegan cake - I always thought it'd be kinda gross.  But, since I'm determined to make delicious vegan food, I decided to give it a try.  I used a recipe from the book:  The Joy of Cooking Cocoa Devil's Food Cake. IMG_1484

I made the following alterations: Coconut oil instead of butter, flax seed instead of eggs, soy youghurt instead of dairy; half the sugar and extra cocoa powder.  I also added a bit of baking powder to make sure it raised well.

While it's baking, I made the glaze.  It's composed of dark chocolate, Earth Balance, corn syrup and Silk creamer.

Pour the glaze over the cake and garnish with mint and pomegranate.
