on . Posted in Blog

vegan_chocolate_cakeThis is a great dark chocolate (good for the brain) cake. You don’t need to be a baker to make it and it is mixed in the baking pan, so clean-up is minimal.


• 1 1/2 Cups Flour
• 2/3 Cup Agave (or sugar)
• 1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
• 1 tsp Baking Soda
• 1 tsp White Vinegar
• 1 tsp Salt
• 1 Cup Warm Water
• 1 tsp Vanilla
• 1/3 Cup Canola (or other vegetable) Oil

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift flour, sugar (if using), cocoa powder, baking soda and salt into an 8 inch square baking pan. Using a fork, make 3 2-inch holes in flour mixture. Pour warm water and vanilla into one hole. Pour oil into another hole. Pour vinegar into the third hole. Stir until the batter is well mixed – one to two minutes.

Bake about 30 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool cake completely in pan before serving.
