Hey guys. It’s Hilah. Welcome to Hilah Cooking.
I’ve been talking about it all month because I just love to talk about
myself. It is the show birthday, actually, officially today. I’m
going to make myself a birthday cake because it’s raining and I’m really depressed
that I’m all alone on my birthday. Maybe a cake will cheer me up. It’s
going to be a vegan chocolate cake, so that in case any of my cool vegan
friends show up unannounced to bring me a present or something, they can
have some. Fingers crossed; vegan chocolate cake. Boom. Right now you’re probably going, “Vegan cake,
gross.” Let me assure you that this is also good if you’re really poor.
I don’t know if that makes you feel any better. Basically, we’ve got
some oil flour, sugar, cocoa, and then some vegetable oil, some water, and some
vinegar. I’m just going to mix it together like we do a regular cake,
and then it’ll be a delicious and moist chocolate cake. I don’t really see
the problem. Especially if you are dating a vegan, then they’re probably
a hippie or something, and they’re probably poor because that’s what
happens. Then you’re probably poor too. This is a really cheap cake to make
because there’s no butter. That’s probably enough talking now. I just put my sugar in. This is the cocoa
that I’m going to sift because it’s very lumpy. Might as well sift the flour,
too. Baking powder and a little bit of salt. I’m just going to get
this combined, and then we’re going to mix up our wet ingredients. Then
we’re going to put the two together, and then we’re going to have a cake
in the oven. Wicked-awesome and easy. This is just water, and I’m going to add some
vanilla, my vinegar, and then the vegetable oil. I’m just going to use a
whisk and make a jiggly sound, just like that. All this together, and we’re
almost done. See how easy this is to mix together because I don’t have to
cream any butter or eggs? You don’t even need a mixer. It’s really the simplest
cake, and it just happens to be vegan. Wicked. I am ready to put this in the cake pan, which
is 8×8. I just put in a piece of parchment paper on the bottom, and then
greased that. I think you could probably use waxed paper and grease it, but
I love parchment paper. Here we go, no spilling, Hilah. Don’t be an idiot.
Look; I’m not spilling. Do I look like an idiot? Last little bit, and awesome.
I don’t really need to spread it out because it’s very thin and it
did that on its own. You can eat it raw because there’s no eggs. I’m going
to put this in
the oven now. Let’s check it with our toothpick. See? No
crumbs are stuck to it. When I press on it, it’s springy. It’s done; sweet.
I just run my knife around the edges. It’s pulling away from the edges, but
let’s just do this to be sure. That paper in the bottom will hopefully let
it come out right. If I did a really shitty job on greasing the sides, which
is very likely, then it might not dump out right, and then it would
be a really sad birthday party indeed. At least you guys are here for me,
right? Thanks, guys. Let’s see what’s going to happen. I’m going to do it
on this board. This is how you do this; board, help me. I’m going to do it
like so, and then I’m just going to just flip it really fast with my
amazing Superman strength and speed. Everybody cross your fingers and think
really good thoughts. 1-2-3. It totally worked. I’ll lift this off. Thanks
for all your positive thoughts, guys; that probably helped a lot.
Pull the paper off. Look at that deep dark chocolate cake, y’all. It needs
to cool. It’s cooled off a little bit. It’s still warm,
but I am one impatient mofo, so I’m going to go ahead and put my icing
on it. It might be a little runny because it’s warm, but warm cake is better
than cold cake, I’ll tell you that much. It looks pretty now. Get it to
drip over the sides magma, lava. It will harden up a little bit and turn into
more a glaze than a frosting. Look at that gorgeous fucking cake; beautiful.
I’m going to decorate it with some orange slices. Wow. This is totally
cute, y’all. Last one. Now I’m going to put my 1 Year birthday candle
in and I’m going to light it, and then I’m going to sing to myself.
It’s going to be the saddest and deliciousest birthday cake ever. Happy birthday,
Hilah. Just kidding. It’s my birthday. I’m going to cut some cake now.
Ready? Oh, my God. This cake looks totally moist and delicious, like some
of my best friends. Sorry. Let me just taste this and then shut the hell
up. That is an awesome cake, even if it is vegan. Whatever, it’s awesome cake
no matter what’s in it. This is a good cake. You should try this. Thanks everybody. This has been an awesome
year and this show has done so many things that I never thought it would.
I met so many awesome people. Thanks everybody so much for all your support,
for your comments, and for watching. I love it. Awesome. Great. Thank
you. See you Year 2. Bye. Also, look at Goldie, you guys. It’s pretty cool
because you’ve watched her grow up along with me. Look how gigantic she is.
She’s such a big girl. I love her. She’s trying to kill herself. See you
guys later. Bye.
