Vegan Chocolate Cake

I was looking at Tiffany's "Vegetarian Voice" site, came across the veg weddings, followed the link to IVU for cake recipes, and noticed that *this one* wasn't there!
So, here ya' go -- this is a great cake!
I've had it at the restaurant, and no one would ever guess that it is any different that a "regular" chocolate cake.
