Hi Lisa I did some digging in my books and found this one for a chocolate cake with a fudge icing, you could try this one for a vegan chocolate cake, i've never made it but have used others in this book with good results, I guess if you dont want to use the fudge icing you could fill and cover with anything of your choice, hope it helps.


10oz self raising wholemeal flour

2oz cocoa powder

3tsp baking powder]9oz caster sugar

few drops vanilla essence

9tbsp sunflower oil

12fluid oz water

sifted cocoa powder (to decorate)

1oz chopped nuts (to decorate)


for the chocolate fudge

2oz soya margarine

3tbsp water

9oz icing sugar

2tbsp cocoa powder

1-2 tbsp hot water


preheat oven to 170 c 325f gas 3

grease a deep 8" round cake tin line the base and sides with greaseproof paper and grease the paper.


sift flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into a large bowl, add vanilla and caster sugar and gradually beat in the oil and water to make a smooth batter

pour into prepared tin and smooth surface

baker in centre of oven for about 45 mins until cooked, leave in tin for 5 mins and turn out oto a wire rack peel off paper and leave to cool.

cut cake in half.


to make the frosting place margarine and water in a pan and heat until melted remove from heat add sifted icing sugar and cocoa beat until smooth and shiny allow to cool until firm enough to spread and pipe.

use 2/3 to fill and remaining 1/3 to cover sprinkle top with cocoa powder and nuts. 

I have plenty! I run a vegan bakery, if you are looking for something specific email me at :D I would love to help!
