Confessions of a Vegan Cake Eater

  • Aug. 12th, 2009 at 8:24 AM
Ok, ok so I may have been holding out on y'all, but but only this week, and only because, well this cake takes so little time, effort and stuff that once you've finished the first one you somehow find yourself back in the kitchen transforming it into muffins, or more cake or well - just chocolaty vegan goodness!

Super Easy Choc Vegan Cake (aka Chocolate Oil Cake)

Heat oven to 180C/350C

In a large bowl combine:

1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder/Bi Carb

Use a metal whisk or fork to stir these together.

In another bowl, or measuring jug combine:

1/2 cup oil (I've been using olive, but almost anything would work)
1 cup water (or coffee)
2 tsp vanilla essence (the real stuff yes please thanks)

Stir these together, poor onto dry ingredients and use your whisk to blend them all together. Then add:

2 tablespoons cider vinegar (although I'm sure you could use white/brown too)

Whisk a bit more - the cider wont totally blend into the mix, but you'll get this lovely satiny choc mix - yum!

Poor into a greased cake/muffin.loaf tin and bake about 40mins for cake - 25 for muffins.

Cake is cooked when a skewer/toothpick comes out clean.

My oven takes about 55 mins!

Eat and enjoy your cruelty free, super easy treat!
