Best Ever Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe: super moist and easy cake recipe that’s chocolatey in every bite. Extremely easy to make and no-one can guess it’s vegan.
This Best Ever Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe is everything you’d have ever wanted (in terms of chocolate 😉 and our savior this weekend. This labor day weekend had been made so much in advance that when we came to know of this sudden ‘Extreme Hot Weather with absolutely No-Grilling’ warnings, the world came to a standstill…atleast for a moment. We had everything planned for a fun beach day to grilling at our friend’s place who just bought a new swanky grill…such a bummer !!!
We were dreaming of chilled Mango Jalapeno Margarita’s with Grilled Sausage Kebabs (which I was supposed to take), lounging in the gazebo with our favorite music, cool California weather in late 70’s Fahrenheit but everything changed as we are going through drastic weather change and it’s expected to be 110F over the weekend…Seriously WHYYYY!!!!
So anyway, since everyone is so sad especially our dear friend who bought the new grill, we all thought to cheer him up and do a surprise party at our place. The menu is absolutely simple, we are doing everyone’s fav pizza (actually getting it delivered) with lots of drink and I volunteered to make dessert at home. And what better way to cheer someone than an ooey-gooey, moist chocolate cake !!!
Since some of our friends who are are attending the party are vegan, so I decided to make my Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe and trust me, no-one ever comes to know it’s vegan until I tell them. This recipe has been tried n tested on so many non-vegan friends and they have devoured the cake everytime without doubting that it’s vegan and that for me is a real test of a cake recipe! What makes this cake so moist is ‘Yogurt + Vinegar’, now I’m using a dairy-free plain yogurt, but if you are not a vegan and still want to make it, you can use regular plain yogurt too.
Also, I wanted to mention that everytime I make a Chocolate cake, I always add a pinch of instant coffee to it as it somehow enhances that rich chocolate flavors and definitely gives it this rich-intense chocolate look which to me is always so gorgeous! Rest of the ingredients are same as of any cake and yes, I’m using olive oil, hence the cake is actually very light to eat – One bite of this Best Ever Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe and you’ll know why I call it so.
Keeping with the moist, light and fluffy theme of our cake, I wanted to keep the icing minimal. You can definitely serve the cake as is and you’d still love it. But if for you a party cake is not complete unless there is icing, then I got you covered my friend. The icing, I’m making is good enough to cover the entire cake (top of it) but I’m just drizzling it ever so lightly and then sprinkling some chopped roasted almonds on top. I can guarantee that one bite of this cake and you’ll be in love with its rich and moist flavor without actually adding too much of anything. So this weekend, go ahead and spoil your loved ones with this Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe and I’ll guarantee you happy contented faces in return 🙂
That’s it for now & Have a Great Weekend Ahead ~ Hugs 🙂
