Delicious and Easy Vegan Chocolate Cake

What a better way to celebrate someones special day with a beautiful cake made with love? We found the best recipes for our Spirit Sisters. It will take you 20 minutes of preparation and 40 minutes of cooking time.

Ingredients (for 2 persons )
Dry ingredients :
cups all-Purpose flour
cups white sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Wet ingredients :
2⅔ cups non-dairy milk (such as soy or almond)
cups light oil (such as canola or vegetable)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Frosting ingredients :
½ cup vegan butter (such as Earth Balance)
½ cup vegetable shortening (see notes)
cup powdered sugar
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 - 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk (if needed)
  • Instructions 
  1. To Make the Cake: Preheat your oven to 350F (180C). Prepare two 8" round baking pans by lightly greasing them, and then cutting a circle of parchment paper to fit into the bottom.

  2. In a large bowl whisk together all of the dry ingredients, then set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl whisk together all of the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Don't over mix. Divide the batter into the prepared pans, then pop them in the oven. Bake for about 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cakes cool completely before frosting.

  4. To Make the Frosting: Use a mixer to blend all of the frosting ingredients except for the non-dairy milk. Blend until whipped and creamy. If the frosting is a bit too stiff, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of non-dairy milk as needed until desired consistency is reached.

  5. To Assemble the Cake: Run a knife around the edges of the cake pans, and flip the pans over to remove the cakes. Remove the parchment paper and discard. Place the first cake on your cake plate, and spread about half of the frosting on top. Place the second cake on top of the frosted cake, and spread the remaining frosting on top of that cake. Add your favorite candies or summer fruit make it pretty. Store the cake in the fridge or a cool place until you are ready to serve. 

Enjoy and please, don't be surprise if non-vegans ask you the recipe....

THE FOOTPATH TO FREEDOM
THE FOOTPATH TO FREEDOM

by Brett Shearer November 22, 2016

There’s a harmonious space that exists inside all of us. You may find it when finally pulling off a difficult yoga pose, watching the sun set, or a job well done. Big or small, simple or complex, it manifests itself in life, and we’re constantly seeking it. It's what drives us to go on that road trip, klap that early morning workout, and get up and kick ass every day, and I believe this relates to a simple element.
