  • Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl, whisking until smooth. Cut in buttery spread using a pastry cutter or 2 knives until it is the size of small peas and flour mixture is evenly coated.

  • Pour soy milk, coffee, vinegar, and vanilla extract into the bowl. Blend with an electric mixer until smooth; beat for 2 minutes more. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack or serving plate.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute another vegan milk for the soy milk if preferred.

You can use another type of vinegar in place of apple cider vinegar.

I made this cake for a friend and her family. They loved it and asked for the recipe! I used canola oil ( it is vegan) instead of the buttery spread. I will definitely make this again. Read More

I doubled the ingredients to make a layer cake. It came out really light and fluffy. I used Almond milk to avoid a Soy allergy. I topped it off with the Vegan Peanut Butter frosting recipe from this site. We loved it! Read More

Great cake although I made some changes. I ground oats in the blender to make oat flour since I was at my Mom's and I could not find regular flour in the cabinet. I also added one egg. It was great but I will try it as originally defined the next time. Read More

My world has changed! This cake is awesome! I have made very complex cakes in the past that don't touch this rich and deep chocolate flavor! I topped it with a little powdered sugar but it doesn't need it! I will make this again!! Read More
