Ultimate Vegan Chocolate Cake

This is it. I tried a few vegan chocolate cakes, cupcakes and muffins. This one is definitely the best. It’s moist and rich and simply perfect. Make it, try it and you’ll love it 🙂

Here’s what you’ll need for the cake:

  • 195 grams plain flour
  • 60 grams cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 150 grams white sugar
  • 150 grams dark brown sugar
  • 120 ml vegetable oil (not olive oil)
  • 355 ml coffee
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Here’s what you’ll need for the glaze:

  • 135 grams dark vegan chocolate chopped into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon golden brown syrup or maple syrup (for shine)
  • A pinch or two of sea salt

Here’s what you do:

  1. Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  2. Line the bottom of 9-inch round cake pan with a fitted round of parchment paper.
  3. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and white sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add brown sugar and vegetable oil, and whisk to combine.
  5. Add coffee and vinegar and whisk until smooth.
  6. Pour into prepared pan.
  7. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the centre comes out with just a few sticky crumbs.
  8. Cool the cake on a wire rack

Make the glaze:

  1. Combine chocolate, cocoa powder, vegetable oil, golden brown syrup, and salt in a medium bowl and melt in a double boiler
  2. Wisk until smooth.
  3. Pour over completely cooled cake

Decorate with nuts and enjoy!
