Vegan Chocolate Cake


I came across this wonderful Vegan Chocolate Cake recipe recently on my homeschooling message board.

I have made it close to a dozen times already and each time it is perfect!  It is so simple and really moist.


Gather all your ingredients together first.

Preheat your oven to 375.

Grease and flower your cake pans, I use two 8″ rounds or 24 muffin cups.

Ingredients                                 03-02-09-023

1 1/2 Cups Organic flour

1/3  Cup Organic Cocoa powder

1 tsp (tea spoon) baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 Cup Organic Sugar

1 Cup Cold Water or Coffee

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

2 tsp Vinegar

1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract (optional)


In a large mixing bowl combine flour, salt, cocoa, and baking powder, mix and set aside

In a second mixing bowl combine water, sugar,oil, and  vanilla.   reserving the vinegar until all is mixed


Mix well

Add the dry ingredients to the wet

Add vinegar as the final step, this will cause a reaction with the baking soda and will look swirly


Pour into greased pans and bake for 10 – 12 minutes depending on how hot your oven is.



Remove from oven and let cool a few minuets before removing from pans, then let cool completely on wire racks.



Frost with Organic frosting ( made from Earth Balance margarine and organic powdered sugar, or melt a chocolate bar in a double broiler ( I use a stainless steel bowl on top of a pot of boiling water, works great!)


I always add a layer of jam between my two cakes, this makes them stick together, and my mom always did this so I do too.
