Vegan Chocolate Cake

Every year for the last five years I´ve been making a cake for a fantastic group of people who created an association and a shelter for dogs and cats name UPPA.

For some of those years, some members of this group were vegans and it was my challenge to find a good, great-tasting recipe with great consistency to hold the fondant decorations and totally vegan. And I found it, and have used it for the last five years with great feedback from the client and using a variety of filling for flavor twists.

I want to share this recipe with you today, and I have a picture to show you how this cake rises and how fluffy and moist it is.

20191004_182909

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 cup and a half of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of good quality dark cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup of sunflower oil
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of sodium bicarbonate

 

The great thing about this recipe is that you can mix it all by hand or in a blender, just add all the wet ingredients first and then the dry ones. In order to make the cake rise, I mix in a separate cup the vinegar and the bicarbonate until it stops bubbling, then add it to the cake mix at the end.

I use many kinds of fillings but to keep it to the vegan vibe, add a good homemade fruit jam and it will be delicious.

And to finish, I leave you with the cake I made this year for UPPA and the link to their page.

Hope you like it.

Love

Cristina
