What a damn fine recipe. I made these for a going-away party at work, & they were a hit. The only major tweaks I made were that I used bob's red mill gluten-free all-purpose flour instead of wheat flour, & coconut milk with a tablespoon of orange juice instead of soy + vinegar. I also used coconut oil instead of canola, & brown sugar instead of white. They came out tender & fragrant & aggressively chocolatey (definitely have a glass of milk handy!) I found that they were too soft to spread frosting on, even when cooled, so I tried to make the frosting a little on the gloppy side so that I could just drop a dollop on each one. (This fragility was no doubt due to the g-f flour more than anything else.) I still have tons of frosting left, so I suspect I'll be making these again before the week is out!
