Vegan Chocolate Cake

I think this chocolate cake is the easiest cake I’ve ever made, I’d barely even started and it was already baking away in the oven! Delicious too! It’s recipes like these that make me wonder why people bake with eggs and milk at all!

Vegan Chocolate Cake
(The Joy of Vegan Baking)

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups (188g) unbleached all purpose flour
3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 cup cold water

+ the frosting of your choice

Method:

1. Prehead the oven to 180 degrees. Grease a baking pan. Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and cocoa powder in a bowl until thoroughly combined.

2.Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, add the vanilla, oil, vinegar and water, mix until just combined. Pour into your prepared pan, and bake for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

3. Cool on a wire rack. Cool completely before frosting.

NOTE: you can also use this mixture for cupcakes, in that instance check after 15 minutes to see if cakes are done.
