long distance dedication
this is the chocolate upside down pudding cake from vegan-a-go-go. let me tell you something, after you eat this cake--you'll be buzzing around your living room like beavis and butthead doing the cornholio dance because it's full of some bad-assed sugary goodness. i'm not going to be the kind of vegan that says, "oh i don't eat sweets because they're so toxic for you!" i really don't give a shit. i don't drink, i don't smoke, i don't do drugs, and i quit eating animals and their by-products. if i'm gonna be guilty of anything, let it be my foul language and insatiable sweet tooth.
if y'all haven't made this kind of cake before, it seems a little confusing. i felt like i was doing something wrong. the cake batter is kind of like cookie dough, and you put it in a loaf pan. then you spread the sugar cocoa mix on top of the batter and cover it with boiling water. once the cake is in the oven *****magic*****happens. the cake rises to the top and the sugar/cocoa/water mixture turns into a glorious chocolate pudding-y syrup. of course, to cut the sweetness it only makes sense to serve it with a scoop of rice dream.
i thought it would be appropriate to dedicate this awesome dessert to Chocolate Covered Vegan. i really enjoy her blog. i enjoy many vegan blogs, but i find her style to be quite endearing. she's really good about taking pictures of her meals and has an awesome habit of actually representing all of the vegan food groups, a practice i wish i could follow. she's super cute to boot. actually, she's that kind of gorgeous that i find intimidating, but that's just my insecurities talking. i have a feeling that her spirit is just as attractive as her doe eyes and phenomenal smile.
do i have a nerd crush? ((((blushing)))) wouldn't be the first one.
