Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Place flour, cocoa, baking powder and soda, sugar and salt in a medium size mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour the soy milk, oil, vinegar, and vanilla into the flour mixture.
  • Whisk the wet and dry ingredients together until smooth, then pour into a 9 x 9 inch baking pan. (Spray cake pan with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in cake batter.)
  • Bake at 350 F for about 25 - 30 minutes; test with a toothpick. It is done when toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a cooling rack, then remove from pan. I find that cakes easily slip out of glass baking dishes once they have thoroughly cooled.

    I was nervous about making my first ever Vegan cake and was extremely pleased with the result. This cake tastes so good. Who knew you could make cake and icing without butter, eggs or cow's milk? I am only making Vegan cakes from now on. And I am not a Vegan.

    I made this cake for a friend's birthday and it was a hit. I multiplied everything by 1.5 so I could make a double layer cake. I also made it marble (adding cocoa last, to about 1/4 of the batter), which was delicious!

    Floomflooml: Have you tried making this one leaving the vinegar out? I am pretty sure its essential. (You've marked it optional.) This is pretty close to the same cake I make, only I use apple cider or white vinegar. It reacts to the baking soda for the rising action. Raspberry vinegar sounds like a nice twist I will have to try.

    I just made this recipe. I decided to make cupcakes for my friend who cannot eat eggs.
    It turned out really bad. The cakes were incredibly dense (as in I could use them for hockey pucks)and they were really dry and flavorless too. I tried to make it better by putting a lot of frosting, but I'm not so sure it helped.

    Take my advice and skip this one.

    I made this cake for a friends birthday and it was a massive hit. I made it again the following day. I used a vegan chocolate spread as icing on the cakes. Then I made it again the day after that, this time I put it the mix in muffin tins and didn't ice it. Every time it was gobbled within seconds. It's the best vegan cake recipe I've ever come across and I am planning on sticking with it forever! I think what made it perfect was adding that little bit extra vanilla soy milk to the batter because it didn't seem quite runny enough. I made it without the raspberry vinegar as I was unable to find any, but I will look for some as I'd love to try it. Great recipe!

    This cake is amazing! I made it for my birthday last week and it was probably the best cake I've ever had, vegan or no. I topped it with some fantastic vegan cream cheese frosting. Yum!
