Chocolate Loaf with Strawberries
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1¼ cup boiling water
1¼ cup sugar
4 tablespoons margarine
½ cup soy yogurt
1¾ cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Combine cocoa powder and boiling water, stirring well. Let cool.
With a mixer, combine the sugar and margarine thoroughly. Stir in the yogurt. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the margarine mixture and mix with a mixer until thoroughly combined.
Pour in the water/cocoa mixture, and pour into a prepared loaf pan.
Bake in a 350F/180C oven for 40 minutes, then cover with foil and bake another 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes.
To serve, sprinkle with cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Scoop strawberries and squirt whipped soy cream on top. Or eat it plain.
