Vegan Chocolate Cake

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Vegan Chocolate Cake
What do you do when your vegan friend has a birthday? Learn how to make a Vegan Chocolate Cake. I was running blind with this one, but it turned out really good (so I was told). It was very moist and had a great flavor. Since it is made with cocoa it had a rich chocolate flavor. I made a simple one layer version. Just double the recipe for a two layer cake.

Vegan Chocolate Cake Ala mode
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cup water
Mix all dry ingredients together. Add oil and use fork or pasty cutter to blend well. Add vanilla and vinegar string well so vinegar is well distributed. Add water slowly until batter is perfect consistency for cake. You may not need to use the entire 1 1/2 cups. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until tooth pick when inserted into center comes out clean. Allow to cool on rack.


1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 Cup Powder Sugar
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil (Or Vegan Butter if you have it)

Mix all ingredients together with blender adding vegetable oil in small amounts until smooth and creamy. Frost cooled cake and serve with vegan ice cream.
