You could make any vegan dessert...vegweb.com has a ton of recipes you could check out. Or you can just do a general google search for "vegan cake"...there are a lot of vegan food blogs out there!

Sometimes recipes use buttermilk (or vinegar) plus baking soda in lieu of eggs for leavening. If you google "buttermilk cake no eggs" you will find recipes like this:

or this (even though this one doesn't even have buttermilk...):

There are many versions of poor man's chocolate cake all over the internet. I would likely increase the cocoa powder by a few TBSP You may google vegan desserts, which don't use eggs, then use butter and milk instead of soy if you like.

6 tb cocoa

In greased pan 13x9, mix all ingredients until smooth. Bake 350ø 40 to 45 minutes. Do not overbake. Frost if desired. (see below)

nutcake's recipe above is what I've always used, but I add a couple Tablespoons of hersheys chocolate syrup to the batter. It seems to keep it a little moister and adds to the flavor nicely.
