welcome to the wonderful world of vegan baking

















tonight, cakes specifically because that's what i feel like posting. and i wish i had one in front of me right now.


my favorite chocolate cake recipe, which i just made for a three year old's bday (as evidenced by the large 3 on the cake). this is also incredibly simple to make.

Double Chocolate Cake

dry ingredients
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup unrefined sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
5 tbl cocoa powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips


wet ingredients
1 cup soymilk
5 tbl canola oil
1 tbl apple cider vinegar
2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Lightly spray a 9" cake pan with oil. Dust with flour. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Put all the dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a large bowl and mix well.
  3. Put the all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and mix well.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Let cool (or not) and eat.
Can also be frosted with chocolate fudge frosting (recipe to come at later date...it's one of those things where I make it, but never actually get around to writing down the recipe measurements...next time i will!)
