  • Author: Well Vegan
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 9 1x



  • 1 1/2 cups bleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar or evaporated cane juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon white or cider vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water


  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375°F. Lightly grease an 8 or 9-inch square pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and sugar. Make three holes in the dry ingredients, one large and two small.
  3. Add the vanilla to the first small hole, the vinegar to the second and the oil to the large hole. Then pour the water over everything and stir to combine.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the top is springy and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack, then cut and serve.
  5. Keep at room temperature, wrapped airtight, for up to 3 days; refrigerate after that.
