Need a Vegan Chocolate Cake recipe

BB Jun 16, 2005 04:57 PM

I am making a birthday cake for my Vegan uncle but am clueless on where I can find a good recipe. Does anyone have a recipe for a vegan chocolate cake. (No eggs/dairy) Thanks.

    Here you go! Not one, but *two* vegan chocolate cake recipes.

      Thanks for the 2 recipes, have you tried them? Are they good? AKA, will non-vegans enjoy them as well?

        I'd like to try making them, but I don't make cakes much to begin with and when it's 105 outside it's even more of a deterrent.

      I don't have it on me, but there's a good one in Joy of Cooking which I have made on occasion. Obviously, it doesn't taste quite like something made with butter and eggs, but it's tasty. There's a vegan orange cake which is quite good too (I like sprinkling it with chocolate chips).

        The JOC recipe is identical to the Amazon cake linked to in another post.

        I'm a fan of this recipe, which is quite good with powdered sugar on top. I haven't tried the suggested frosting, though. I wouldn't have known it was vegan if I hadn't made the recipe. And it really takes only 6 minutes to mix.
