Vegan Chocolate Cake

My fabulous mother made me a vegan chocolate cake for my birthday and it was so good. I don’t know where she got this recipe or who the originating author is, but thank you. It was moist, chocolaty and delicious.

This is what it looked like right out of the oven. When it cooled I added some homemade vegan frosting, which didn’t look so pretty afterwards. Here is the recipe.

  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 Tablespoon vinegar

  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 cup cold water


In a large mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients first, then add wet ingredients. Pour into 8 x 8-inch pan.

Bake at 350°F. oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until it springs back when touched lightly.
