RED WINE CHOCOLATE VEGAN CAKE

WIKI NOTE: Archaeological evidence has established the earliest-known production of wine from fermenting grapes during the late Neolithic site of Hajji Firuz in the northern Zagros Mountains or early Chalcolithic in the northern edge of the Middle East.

RED WINE CHOCOLATE VEGAN CAKE OR "BREAK UP CAKE: CHOCOLATE, WINE AND CAKE ALL IN ONE"

YOU WILL NEED:
DRY INGREDIENTS:
1 and  ½ cups wheat flour (plain or all-purpose)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup panela sugar or unrefined cane sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
A pich of salt
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips or cacao nibs (optional)
WET INGREDIENTS:
1 cup red wine
¼ cup strawberry jam
5 tablespoons sunflower oil (or veggie oil, any neutral flavored)

NOTE: Homemade measurement units



LET´S BAKE!
1. Preheat the oven to 180 潞 C. Grease a bread pan with margarine or veggie oil.
NOTE: Standard dimensions for bread and loaf pans start at 8 ½ by 4 ½ inches. It´s the perfect size for that amount of ingredients. If you multiply the amount by the number of times that you want,  you will get a bigger cake. You have tons of different sizes of baking pan depends on the final amount.
2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl: unrefined cane sugar/brown sugar, flour, baking powder, unsweetened cocoa powder and salt. Mix them well with a wooden spoon.
NOTE: Sift the flour for cakes. Sifting helps to remove any lumps and / or unwanted debris from the flour and also helps to combine the flour with any dry ingredients. If you don't have a strainer handy, you can also mix flour with a wire whisk or a fork.
3. Combine wet ingredients in a bowl: red wine, strawberry jam, veggie oil and vanilla extract until well mixed.
4. Pour the wet mix into the dry bowl. Mix everything slowly with a wooden spoon.
5. Pour the mix into the bread pan. Sprinkle brown sugar on the top.
6. Bake for it around 40 minutes, until browned.
NOTE: Don´t open the oven, you can always leave the cake in the oven for a few more minutes.
7.  Remove from the oven. Leave to cool. Serve as is or with a scoop of vegan ice cream (flavor up to you) or vegan custard.
