Bella’s Graduation Chocolate Cake

Today, Bella graduated from preschool. My little girl is growing up too fast! Off course dinner tonight was a graduation dinner and I served a pasta casserole with quinoa pasta, vegetables, cheese and tomato sauce. For dessert we had a chocolate cake with a maple & chocolate frosting which Bella and I made together.
1/2 cup cream ( I used unsweetened mimic cream)
1 cup milk ( I used vanilla flavored oat milk)
1 cup sugar
2 1/5 ounce melted margarine ( I used earth balance)
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbs cocoa powder
2 cups spelt flour
 
Frosting:
2 ounces margarine
1 tbs maple syrup
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tbs cocoa powder
 
  1. Preheat oven to F350
  2. Blend cream, milk, sugar and margarine in a bowl and whisk hard for a minute.
  3. Add cocoa powder, baking powder and flour and mix well to a smooth batter.
  4. Pour into a well greased cake pan.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until center is dry.
  6. Let it cool completely before removing from pan.
  7. Beat margarine and maple syrup until blended.
  8. Add powdered sugar and cocoa powder and blend until fluffy.
  9. Spread on cake once cake is completely cold.
