Chocolate Spice Cake [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
A moist, delicately spiced, not too choccolatey but totally moreish cake. Cut it up into small squares and serve it up on a nice platter at a party – I promise you they’ll be gobbled up in the blink of eye. Maybe best to make a double batch…

Chocolate Spice Cake [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Vegan

Serves

20

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup raw cane sugar (brown sugar)
  • 3.5oz dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup oat or soy milk
  • 1/2 cup soy yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed, plus 6 tablespoons water

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 160ºC (320ºF). Grease a 20 x 29 cm (8 x 11 inch) cake tin.
  2. Mix the ground flaxseed and water in a small bowl to create flax ‘eggs’. Set aside; after a few minutes, the mixture will gel together.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Place a heat-proof bowl over a pan of hot water. Add the sugar, chocolate, vegan butter, maple syrup, and oat milk to it. Stir to combine the ingredients as they melt.
  5. Pour the chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients, as well the soya yogurt and flax ‘eggs’. Mix until just combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the greased cake tin, then smooth out the top with a spatula. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the sides of the cake begin to come away from the tin and a skewer comes out of the middle clean.
  7. Cool on a wire rack before flipping onto a tray and cutting up into 20 pieces.

AUTHOR & RECIPE DETAILS

After turning vegan, I discovered a particular talent for baking delicious cruelty-free cakes and cookies. It was then that my friends named me ‘The Vegan Cookie Fairy’ and my blog was born. I find happiness in preparing and eating food that is good for my body and soul — but cats and yoga help, too.
