Chocolate Strawberry Horsecake

RECIPE – Chocolate Strawberry Horsecake
The Vegetarian Librarian

2 -2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
6 Tbs cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups water
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla extract
Sliced strawberries!

Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Oil + flour cake pan(s). Bake aprox. 40 minutes @ 350 degrees until fork comes clean – size of pan(s) will affect cooking time. Carefully remove from pan(s) + cool on wire rack.

In the webisode we put the batter into two cake pans making two shorter cakes. When cooled, we layered them with strawberries in between and a hearty coating of frosting on the outside.

Chocolate Frosting (makes a lot!)

3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup vegan margarine
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 -2 Tbs soy milk
1/3 – 1/4 cup cocoa powder
Shredded coconut (optional, but awesome)
Chopped nuts (optional, but rad)

Combine ingredients until smooth. Frost cake and enjoy!


Strawberry Horsecake is so cool! ???

They are the coolest. They wrote the song they performed in the middle of the webisode with their intern Billy that very afternoon we filmed it. Check out their myspace page here: Purveyors of the butt beat

A HUGE THANKS to SH & family for such a memorable night in the kitchen! And PK for another great cameo!
