I’ve been experimenting with more vegan recipes recently, and I’m really happy with how this ones turned out! It’s a vegan and gluten free chocolate fudge cake, topped with a dairy free chocolate buttercream, free from Oreo style biscuits and dairy free chocolate buttons! It’s best served heated in the microwave for 30 seconds before eating, which makes it go delicious and fudgy!
To make this cake you will need a standard 9 inch loose bottomed cake tin, you can purchase one by clicking here. If you do make this recipe I’d love to see, don’t forget to tag me in your photos over on social media!
185ggluten free self raising flour (I use the FREEE by Dove's Farm flour)
1tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
150ggolden caster sugar
90glight brown demerara sugar
90gcocoa powder (ensure it's dairy free)
400mlalmond or soya milk
1tsp vanilla extract
2tspapple cider vinegar
For the buttercream
150gdairy free butter (I use the Stork 'Perfect for baking' gold packet)
40gcocoa powder (ensure it's dairy free)
Free From Oreo style biscuits
Dairy free chocolate buttons
For the cake
Pre heat your oven to 180°C and grease and line a standard 9 inch loose bottomed cake tin.
In a large bowl combine your gluten free self raising flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, sea salt.
Next add your golden caster sugar, light demerara sugar and cocoa powder and mix well until fully combined.
Add your almond (or soya) milk to a saucepan and heat on the hob on a medium heat until it starts to simmer. Remove from the heat and stir in your apple cider vinegar, sunflower oil and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
Gradually whisk your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients until the mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture into your lined baking tin and bake in the centre of the oven for around 50 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and leave to completely cool on a wire rack.
For the toppings
Make your buttercream by adding your dairy free butter, icing sugar and cocoa powder to a large mixing bowl and whisking with an electric whisk. It will take a while to come together but after around 5 minutes it will create a delicious buttercream.
Spread the buttercream generously on the top and sides of the cake and smooth with a knife. Add your Free From oreos and chocolate buttons as decorations. Enjoy!
Best served heated in the microwave for 30 seconds before eating a slice.
