Ingredients 1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
¼ cup soy flour
½ cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup dairy free semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup cherry preserves
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 ½ cups plain soy milk
½ cup soy oil
2/3 cup cherry preserves, reserved for glazing after the cake has baked
Instructions Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit and lightly grease an 8x8 baking pan.
Measure the all purpose flour, soy flour, baking cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and chocolate chips into a medium sized mixing bowl and incorporate.
In a separate bowl combine the half cup of cherry preserves, granulated sugar, almond extract, soy milk, and soy oil and stir.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
Pour the batter into the greased 8x8 pan and bake for forty-five minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
