Michael Blankenship

Serves 6

For the Easy Spice Cake:

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 cup water

For the Caramel Frosting:

1/4 cup soy margarine
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons soymilk
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cake: In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Add the oil, vinegar, and water. Whisk until thoroughly blended. Pour into a lightly oiled 8- or 9-inch square baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Set aside to cool before frosting.

Frosting: In a small saucepan, melt the soy margarine and then add the brown sugar. Cook over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the soymilk and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Slowly beat in the powdered sugar until smooth. Frost the cooled Easy Spice Cake and enjoy. 

Baking time and temperature may vary slightly depending on oven type and altitude.
