Vegan Meatloaf Cake is delicious and easy to make. It's hearty and is a fun dinner idea for kids! It uses commonly found ingredients and takes less than an hour to make.
Place all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine well. Stir in the barbeque sauce or ketchup and mustard.
Pour in the boiling water and mix until all the ingredients are moistened and begin to rehydrate and stick together.
Let the mixture rest for a few minutes.
Divide the mixture into two 8" nonstick cake pans and spread evenly.
Add a bit more barbeque sauce or ketchup to the top.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, until the meatloaf has firmed and the sides are starting to brown.
Make about 3 cups of your favorite mashed potatoes while the meatloaf bakes. Instant or homemade both work.
Remove the meatloafs from the oven when done. Allow them to cool for a few minutes until cooled enough to handle. Lift one meatloaf out of the pan using a spatula (and dexterity!).
Place one meatloaf on a suitable plate or cake stand and spread with about a cup or so of mashed potatoes. Just like when frosting a cake, place the second meatloaf on top of the mashed potatoes layer and add more mashed potatoes to the top.
Add a sprinkle of dried chives and bac-o-bits.
Cut like a cake and serve while still warm. Add a splash of gravy, if desired.
