This is my family recipe. It is a delicious chocolate cake with a twist, it's completely vegan. This cake goes great with some chocolate or vanilla frosting and a scoop of ice cream on top! I get extra fancy with a few mint leaves!

I made cupcakes out of these and they were awesome. I mixed all the ingredients except the vinegar. Stirred it in at the last minute which is why I think it had such a nice rise. Added 1/2 c cranberries and 1/2 c of walnuts. Delicious. Also made a glaze of powdered sugar, water and almond extract with a pinch of salt . Amped the cupcakes up nicely. Read More

I have been making this cake for years! It is the best chocolate cake ever. My vegan friend loves it and so do my children. I love that you don't need milk and eggs! Company's Coming cookbooks by Jean Pare have a similar recipe. Read More

I was given this recipe not long after I was married. A fabulous recipe when eggs are either not in the house due to having run out OR if there is an egg allergy. Thank you for posting! Read More
