Dairy free, egg free chocolate cake that is moist and delicious!

Ingredients (serves 10)

  • 1 1/2 Cups Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 Teaspoon White Vinegar
  • 5 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Cup Water


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line round or square cake tin with baking paper. You can also use this recipe to make cupcakes.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in bowl. Make three depressions in flour mixture, 2 Small, one large.
  3. In first depression, add vinegar. In second, add vanilla essence. In large depression, add oil.
  4. Pour cup of water over mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Pour into prepared cake tin and place in oven for 30-35 minutes, testing with skewer to ensure it is cooked through. Adjust cooking time for cupcakes to approximately 20-25 minutes testing with skewer.
  6. Once cooled, dust with icing sugar to serve or decorate as you wish. I usually whip coconut cream and make dairy free chocolate icing and top work berries!
