Pregistry’s Friday Recipe: Vegan Chocolate One-Bowl Cake and Frosting

If you need a really (really!) good chocolate cake but have to accommodate egg and/or dairy allergies, look no further!

This one-bowl chocolate cake is rich, moist, delicious and completely free of dairy and eggs. And since no proper chocolate cake would be served without frosting we’re giving you a decadent chocolate frosting that is dairy-free too!

Sprinkles are optional but highly recommended.

And best of all, you can double this recipe to make a 9 x 13 sheet cake or 24 cupcakes!

Vegan Chocolate One-Bowl Cake and Frosting:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 9 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 6 tablespoons non-dairy spread
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • Chocolate sprinkles (optional)

Make the cake: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees; grease and flour an 8” x 8” pan. Combine the flour, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, salt, granulated sugar and baking soda in a large bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of the vanilla, vinegar, vegetable oil and water and stir to combine well.

Pour batter into your prepared pan and bake till a tester tests clean, 35 – 40 minutes. Cool cake completely in pan on a wire rack.

Make the frosting: Place the confectioner’s sugar, remaining 6 tablespoons cocoa powder, remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla, non-dairy spread and almond milk in a medium bowl. Beat till smooth.

Frost the cake and top with sprinkles, if using.
