VEGAN Chocolate Cake 

Hey everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve posted some baking but here is the best vegan cake recipe I’ve ever tasted. At university we’ve been working on recipes suitable for different dietary groups so here goes… 

Makes 9

Dry Ingredients 

2 1/2 cups flour 
2 1/2 cups caster sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

2 2/3 non dairy milk
2/3 cups oil
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Method
1. Preheat the oven to 180°c and prepare mini cake loafs for baking.

2. Put all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.

3. Then whisk together the wet ingredients in a hug and slowly pour into the bowl whisking constantly.

4. Whisk until you get a smooth runny mixture, evenly pour into the mini loaf cases about 3/4 and bake in the oven for 25 minutes until risen and fully cooked.

5. I like to use a cocktail stick to check if the cake is fully cooked right through. Leave to cool down completely and enjoy 😊😊

Double Chocolate Traybake 🍫 

Hi guys, this week I’ve used a ready prepared cake mix which is definitely unusual for me however I wanted to do/try something different. It also saves so much time and effort especially if you don’t have a lot of free time. It’s really quick and easy anyone can do it regardless of your skills.
Makes: 12

Cake mix
2 eggs
75ml cold water
Chocolate frosting
55g butter at room temperature
2 tsp milk

1. Too the cake mix into a bowl and add the eggs and water, stirring until smooth. Pour into a small 6 inch baking tin and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes on gas mark 4.

2. Once baked take out and leave to completely cool down. Tip the frosting into a bowl adding the butter and milk stirring until creamy.

3. Layer the frosting over the cake and sprinkle with white chocolate stars 🌟 🌟

Carrot Cake 

Hi guys 😀 so this carrot cake I made was for my Uncles birthday, I usually bake things for him when I have free time and I think everyone loves a classic carrot cake.

Makes a large oven tray. 

Ingredients 
450ml vegetable oil
400g plain flour
2 tap bicarbonate soda
100g caster sugar
350g soft brown sugar
5 eggs
½ tsp salt
2 tap cinnamon
500g grated carrots
100g chopped nuts
50g raisins

Method 

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and line a oven tray with parchment paper.

2. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl except from the carrots, walnuts and 1 tbsp of flour, mix until smooth. Add the flour to the raisins (to keep them from sinking) then add both the raisins and carrot to the cake mixture.

3. Carefully spoon the mixture into a cake tin and bake for 1 hour and 15 mins.  Once baked remove from the oven and leave to cool down completely, this cake will taste so delicious 😋 it is really nice and moist and would go great with custard if you like it!!
