Easy Vegan Chocolate Cake

Posted by on

Sometimes you need a simple cake to decorate for a birthday celebration, or just because!  This delicious vegan, gluten free version of chocolate cake is light, moist and really simple to make.  We like to use a creamy avocado based topping but you could use melted raw chocolate & nuts,  or coconut yoghurt with fresh berries.  



Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy free

Serves 6 – 8

We use organic ingredients


  • 1 ½ cups gluten free flour mix (we use The Gluten Free Food Co flour blend)
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao

  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup macadamia nut oil

  • Whisk nut milk, oil, yoghurt, vinegar & vanilla together.
  • Mix wet ingredients with dry mix for around 1 minute until well combined.
  • Pour into lined medium sized cake tin.
