Vegan Dessert Recipes, Part 4


1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
3/4 cup unrefined sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 cup cold water

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder in a large bowl and stir with a fork until mixed. Make a well in the center and add the vanilla, oil, vinegar, and water. Stir with a fork until well mixed. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool completely, then frost with Chocolate Cream Frosting (below).


2 tablespoons vegan margarine
1 1/3cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2-4 tablespoons water

Cream the vegan margarine in a small bowl, then add the sugar, cocoa, vanilla, and enough water to make a thick but spreadable frosting.

From ’The Peaceful Palate’ by Jennifer Raymond.

Tamara's notes: “I have never mixed this in the baking pan like Jennifer suggests; I always just use a mixing bowl. Also, I often double the recipe to make a 9x13 cake.”
