5 Ingredient, 5 minute easy vegan chocolate cake

This is a super easy and surprisingly delicious chocolate cake. We did 5 versions of it yesterday and this version got 10/10 feedback! Its perfect for anyone that is new to baking. We serve it with some whipped #vegan cream and berries.

5 minutes to make, 30 minutes to bake

Serves 8-10 slices



200g all purpose white flour

70g cocoa powder

1 tbsp baking powder

180g coconut sugar/caster/muscovado sugar

130g sunflower oil

500 boiling water




Preheat the oven to 180C

Sieve the flour and cacao powder into a mixing bowl. Add the baking powder and sugar and mix well together.

Add the oil and boiling water and fold all the ingredients into a consistent cake batter.

Line a spring form cake tin with baking parchment.

Pour the batter into lined lined spring form cake tin, put in the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 180C.

Test that it is cooked through by sticking a tooth pick/knife and seeing that it comes out clean, if it doesn’t come out clean then bake for another 5-10 minutes until it comes out clean.

Remove and leave to cool.

Decorate with frosting of choice or serve plain with some whipped vegan cream and berries.
