Vegan Chocolate Cake

Posted on: May 31, 2012

This recipe is also known as Cockeyed Cake or Screwy Cake.

This yields a rich, moist and chocolatey cake, also suitable for making as cupcakes if you are inclined to dirty more dishes.

Because the brilliance of this cake is that you mix it right into the pan you bake it in.

It takes about 5 mins to mix it up, slightly more if you can’t put your hands on the vinegar.

prepare a 9 x 9 greased or sprayed pan.

pour in

1 &  1/2  cups flour

3 tbsp cocoa (the darker the better)

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

give it a gentle shake or stir a bit  to partly mix, then make 3 shallow wells to pour into one well:

5 tbsp cooking oil

in another

1 tbsp vinegar

then in the third

1 tsp vanilla

pour over the whole pan 1 cup cold water

stir with a spoon like you are making a mud pie until it is nearly smooth and you don’t see flour.

bake at 350 degrees F for half an hour.


years ago, a friend tried to substitute any other sweeter for the sugar, and while the frozen orange juice and mashed bananas gave an interesting flavour and texture, sugar is needed for the chemical reactions.

perhaps try a raw sugar or cane sugar in ratio to refined. if that’s a concern for you
