This vegan chocolate cake with extra chocolate frosting is THE BOMB!! The best thing is it’s so incredibly easy and you don’t need any fancy ingredients. It’s one of my favorite vegan cake recipes! I mean just look at it. Doesn’t it look gorgeous with all these berries?!
How to make vegan chocolate cake
Making vegan chocolate cake really couldn’t be much easier. At least with this recipe.
You only need very basic ingredients:
-brown sugar or coconut sugar
-plant-based milk (I prefer almond milk for vegan baking, but any other plant-based milk works fine as well)
-margarine (make sure the brand you’re using is vegan)
This ingredient list sounds pretty manageable, doesn’t it?
You probably already got most of these ingredients in your pantry. As always, you can find the full ingredient list for the vegan chocolate cake in a separate printable recipe box beneath the text section.
Just combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until you got a smooth batter. Then pour the dough into a cake springform pan. I used a 10 inch spingform pan. Bake for about 30 minutes. It’s best to test with a skewer to see if the cake is done or if you need to adjust the baking time a little bit as every oven is a bit different.
How to make vegan chocolate icing
The main ingredient in my vegan chocolate icing is avocado, which works so great! And it’s also so much healthier than traditional chocolate icing. And it’so rich! Making vegan chocolate icing with avocado is pretty easy. Just combine two avocados with cocoa powder, maple syrup or agave, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth. That’s it!
Once the vegan chocolate cake has cooled down, evenly spread the vegan chocolate frosting on top and garnish the cake with fresh berries and pistachios. They make it look so decadent! It’s also the perfect vegan birthday cake. I also love using this vegan chocolate avocado frosting for cupcakes.
I hope you like this easy vegan chocolate cake as much as I do! As always, I love hearing from you guys. Whether it’s on Instagram, Facebook, or directly on the blog. Your comments really make my day!
