This was inspired by the Pioneer Woman Cooks site, you can see how Ree does it from here.
This cake turned out really tasty and it was very easy to make, and it was fast. I left it a bit a raw in the middle as you can see in the picture, but that´s not necessary, it´s just that I like chocolate cakes to be a bit a raw so that the cake is moist. I would make the icing a bit differently and add some coffee to it, since I like it that way, and I used dark cocoa in this. The buttermilk was replaced with plain soy yogurt. I was thinking that maybe I could add some lemon juice into my soy milk and get something that would resemble buttermilk, but then I decided to use yogurt which worked well in this recipe.
I used No-Egg since I just bought a pack of it for the first time in my life; I am kind of adding it into everything, but I am almost sure that it is not necessary to use it here.
Chocolate Sheet Cake
-2 cups quinoa flour or all purpose flour or some other gluten-free flour
-2 cups sugar
-1/4 tsp salt
Ingredients which need to be melted:
-1 cup oil or margarine
-4 heaping tbls of cocoa
-1 cup of boiling water
-2 tsp No-Egg and 2 tbls of water, combine them well
-1/2 cup of plain soy yogurt, use a bit more if you don´t use No-Egg
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp vanilla
Preheat your oven to 180 Celcius.
Start by mixing your dry ingredients and leave it to be. Melt your cocoa and margarine together in a saucepan, then add your boiling water and let it boil for 30 seconds. Mix your wet ingredients together and stir them into your melted cocoa/margarine mixture after it has cooled down a bit, then add your dry ingredients, mix everything together and pour the batter into your sheet cake pan. Bake for 20 min, if you are using quinoa flour it will take a bit longer.
I would use this frosting:
-4 dl of confectioner´s sugar
-2 tbls of cocoa
-2 tsp pf vanilla
-100g of margarine
-1/2 dl of coffee
Melt the margarine and add the other ingredients , let them boil for about 2 minutes and then pour it on top of your chocolate sheet cake after it has cooled down a bit.
