needing a treat?

I haven't made this cake myself yet but I have tasted it when someone else made it and i begged for the recipe. It is devine. Not quite as rich and mosit as a brownie but in no way a dry chocolate cake either. You can swap the sugar to make it more 'vegan' friendly if you want. Its not low fat but sometimes you just have to indulge.
Egg-free, Dairy-free, Chocolate Cake
1/2 cup vegetable or light olive oil
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup water
2 cups grated zucchini
a dash of white vinegar
In a large bowl mix oil, sugar and vanilla.
Sift dry ingredients into this and mix well.
Fold in the water, vinegar and zucchini.
Pour into a lined tin and bake at 180 degrees celcius for 30 minutes
When cold ice with chocolate icing
