Vegan Easiest And Fastest Chocolate Coffee Cake Ever

Yesterday, I arrived home and I wanted to make a chocolate cake. I checked a few recipes, feeling inspired. I opened my fridge…the deception–no eggs. Today, I still wanted to eat a nice chocolate cake (no low fat) but I still had the same issue: No eggs. Instead of making my way to the supermarket, I stayed home and complained. I was lazy, yes, even trainers are lazy. But I started thinking, vegan eats cakes, they don’t eat eggs, let’s check for a vegan chocolate cake recipe.

I am gonna be honest, I am vegan friendly, I love vegan food but when I found this recipe I was perplexed. The list of ingredients was surprising and short. The recipe contains no binding substances like eggs (of course, it is a vegan cake) or even flax or chia seed.

Whatever, I was curious. I decided to try it. According to the recipe, this vegan chocolate cake takes only 6 min to prepare and 25 min to bake. I can spare 35 min of my life to experience it and who knows, it may work! It did! This cake is a success! The vinegar mixed with the baking soda generates carbon dioxide gas, which allows the vegan chocolate cake to leaven. I still cannot explain why the cake is not completely falling apart without a binding factor, maybe the fat content or maybe just the magic of baking.

Chocolate batter

Add the vinegar and stir quickly, there will be pale swirls in the batter as the baking soda and vinegar react. Don’t worry it’s a normal reaction
