One "Egg" Cake

1/4 cup vegan butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Ener-G "egg"
3 Tbsp coconut milk (from a can)
1/3 cup water
1/2 tsp vanilla

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl. In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together. Add the "egg" to the creamed butter/sugar. In a cup, mix together the water and coconut milk. Starting with the flour and finishing with flour, alternate adding the flour and milk mixture to the mixer and mix well after each addition. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Pour cake batter into two small, greased baking pans and bake for about 25 minutes. Let cakes cool.

4 squares bitter chocolate
2 Tbsp vegan butter

In a double-boiler, melt the chocolate and add milk, mix. Sift the flour and sugar, then add some of the chocolate mixture to the bowl and stir until combined, then add that mixture to the double-boiler and cook until thickened. Add butter and vanilla and let cool. Spread onto cake. Top with vegan sprinkles.
