One-Bowl Vegan Chocolate Cake

This is a very special time of year for many of us. Whether you are celebrating Passover, Good Friday, Easter Monday or just the coming of spring, it is a time of reflection and renewal. After the long winter months, we can see the light and our spirits are lifted.

What better way to celebrate than with our One-Bowl Vegan Chocolate Cake. Light, fluffy and yet moist, this cake has the making of all the right things. Serve with a bit of coconut ice-cream and fresh fruit and you have yourself the perfect dessert. But watch out! It is highly addictive!

1 3/4 c coconut almond milk
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 c coconut palm sugar
1/2 c vegetable oil
2 flax seed eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt

  2. Mix 2 Tbsp of ground flax with 6 Tbsp of water and set aside until it congeals (about 5 minutes).
  3. Mix coconut/almond or any other plant-based milk with apple cider vinegar in a large mixing bowl and set aside for about 5 minutes.
  4. Then add coconut palm sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla, and flax eggs. Stir well.

  7. Allow to cool before decorating with icing and sprinkles!
