Hannah’s Vegan Chocolate Bourbon Cake

21 Sep

Latest guest post from the lovely Hannah! Thanks lovely! 

Hi there, thought I would submit again, and this time I decided to make a dessert! So here is my very famous (in my family haha) vegan chocolate bourbon cake which is quick, easy and very tasty!

Ingredients for cake: one cup soy milk, one teaspoon apple cider vinegar, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/3 cup of oil, one teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 10 chocolate bourbon biscuits.

Buttercream: one cup butter, four cups icing sugar, one teaspoon vanilla, one teaspoon soy milk, vegan chocolate spread

Preheat oven to 350f or 175c gas mark 3/4.

In a large bowl, mix together one cup soy milk and one teaspoon apple cider vinegar. Mix together until curdling and frothy.
Next, mix in 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/3 cup of oil, one teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, or more vanilla.
Mix all these together until thick and foamy.

Next in a seperate bowl, sift (with a sieve): 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt. Mix all the dry ingredients well, and slowly add to the wet in three batches which gives it the lightness. Finally, crush ten bourbon biscuits and mix in. Finally, line two cake tins and put an equal amount in both. Put this into the top of an oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.


Leave to cool, turn out of the pans and cool some more. Finally sandwich together with vegan chocolate spread and buttercream (One cup butter to four cups icing sugar, one teaspoon vanilla, one teaspoon soy milk) Mix together and put in the fridge to firm up.

This recipe can also do cupcakes, but require a few minutes less baking.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as me and my family do!

    I’m confused. If there’s butter in the buttercream (durr), does that not discount the vegan-ism? I’m not vegan, just curious! Looks, and sounds absolutely divine! 🙂
