This is a family favourite. You would never know the cake has no eggs in it -- and the icing is delicious!!

Grandpa's Golf Cake

1.5 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup white sugar 1 Tbsp vinegar
1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder 1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 Tbsp cocoa (or same amount safe chocolate chips)
1 1/4 cup hot water

1. Pre-heat oven to 350º F.
2. Measure flour into an 8" x 8" baking pan. (Or, if making cupcakes, measure into large bowl.)
3. Mix in remaining dry ingredients (sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa – sifted is best, salt).
4. Make 3 holes (about the size of a golf ball) in the flour mixture.
5. In hole #1 put the vinegar. In hole #2 put the vanilla. In hole #3 put the oil.
6. Pour in the hot water.
7. Mix very well with a fork. Add more water if dough seems stiff (I never have).
8. Bake 25 minutes or perhaps more. (Regular size cupcakes: 17 minutes)

Freezes well. Frost with cocoa frosting (below) and cover with safe sprinkles (McCormick’s are safe), candies, or even Froot Loops (also safe)!

Cocoa Frosting
1/2 cup margarine , softened
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 2/3 cups unsifted confectioners sugar (icing sugar)
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1. Beat margarine on medium speed in large mixer bowl until softened, about 1 minute.
2. Add remaining ingredients.
3. Beat on low speed until ingredients are moistened.
4. Beat on medium speed until creamy.

Keeps for a long time in the fridge.

1. For cocoa, Fry’s makes one without traces of dairy. Be sure to read the label, because some say “may contain dairy” and others don’t. The ones that don’t have this warning are safe. Apparently Hershey's is safe too, but I've never been able to find it.
2. We use PC Decadent chocolate chips. They are run on a DF line, but packaged on a line that packages chocolate chips with dairy in them as well, so you will have to decide if you are comfortable with this.
3. The DF margarine that I use is Nuvel (Quebec only).
