Vegan Lowfat Chocolate Cake

pieces of cut cake
This is an amazing cake. I just made it today after many months of not making it. It is incredibly moist, and unbelievable that it is low fat. You got to make it to believe it! The original recipe uses a sugar-based icing. I use a date-based icing. Make icing first because it needs to cool in the fridge for a few hours.
