Easy Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
 This is my daughter's favourite and most requested dessert - Chocolate Cake from The Joy of Vegan Baking.  I love this recipe because it's so fast and easy to put together.  If you double the recipe it makes a bundt cake and is also great for cupcakes.  I always have the ingredients in my pantry, it doesn't require any egg replacer just flour, salt, sugar, cocao, baking soda, vinegar, vanilla, water and oil.  The cake itself is not too rich on it's own but if you make the chocolate buttercream icing to go with it, the decadance factor goes up a notch.  We enjoy it both ways.   I don't often get a photo of this cake because it gets eaten too quickly and that means as soon as it's out of the oven, I am being pestered for a piece.   As you can see from this photo, there is a slice missing.


  1. It looks so delicious. I might have to try it sometime. I'd like it only with the frosting because the frosting is my favorite part of cake. Lovely photo. The missing slice even adds a bit to its appearance.

  2. I love how in synch we are, Lee. I'm about to make chocolate cake for my darling's b day! I'm going to try Vegan Fusion's recipe, and will let you know how it goes. And I agree, the missing slice is perfect!

  3. OMG! That looks soooo delicious. I think my library has that book, so I will have to try out this recipe sooner than later :-p

  4. This cake is so fast and easy to make. It's my go to choclate cake!
