Easy Vegan Chocolate Cake

the only thing I had sitting in the fridge earlier today was half a carton of soy custard, so i decided I better make a chocolate sponge to go with it. A quick internet search got me a vegan spong recipe and I adapted it to fit with what I had lying around, enjoy!

175g self raising flour
3 level tsp of bicarbonate of soda
125g of marg (melted)
25g cooking chocolate
100g muscavado sugar
325ml soy milk

mix everything together and tip into two 7" cake tins evenly, oven at 190 degrees centigrade for 30 mins

150g icing sugar
150g marg
50g coco powder
a splash of strong espresso

whip up the marg with a fork, sift the other stuff on top, blast it with a hand blender till its nice and fluffy

stick the two bits of cake together with icing and put more icing on the outside.

Warning: after 1 slice you will be a bit like this...
