2Sift gluten free all purpose flour and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl. Add light brown sugar, baking soda and salt and mix together.

3Prepare a flax egg by adding 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed meal to a bowl and then adding in 3 tablespoons of hot water from the kettle. Let it sit for a minute to become gloopy.

4Add soy milk, oil, flax egg, applesauce, vanilla extract and vinegar and mix into a batter.

5Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared cake pans.

6Bake for 25-30 minutes, check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the cake, it should come out clean.

7Let the cakes cool for a few minutes before removing them from the cake pans and transferring them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

8When the cakes are completely cooled, frost with vegan chocolate ganache frosting or vegan chocolate frosting.
