From Stephanie Mellini.

Cake Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup Olive Oil
1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar

Chocolate Glaze Ingredients:

1/2 cup sugar
4 tbsp vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance, found at most grocery stores)
2 tbsp soy milk
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. In an 8x8 inch pan (round or square), mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Mix until well blended. Then, add the water, vanilla, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Mix together until well blended, making sure to scrape down the sides and bottom.

Bake for thirty minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool.

To make the glaze, stir together the sugar, margarine, soy milk, and cocoa powder in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and then turn down the heat to let it simmer for two minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and keep stirring for about five minutes. Mix in vanilla. Pour the glaze directly on the cake and enjoy!
