A Great Chocolate Cake!

Preparation: 20 min.
Cooking: 45 min.
Serves: 12

A perfectly sinful chocolate cake (especially if you smother it with chocolate icing), egg-free and no dairy products! No need to sacrifice pleasure!

This recipe is taken from the cookbook entitled Déjouer les allergies alimentaires, recettes et trouvailles, authored by Marie-Josée Bettez.

625 mL wheat pastry flour, sifted 2½ cup
10 mL baking soda 2 tsp
250 mL cocoa powder 1 cuo
1 mL salt 1/4 tsp
375 mL brown sugar 1½ cup
500 mL soy beverage 2 cup
185 mL canola oil ¾ cup
60 mL water 4 tbsp
80 mL applesauce ⅓ cup
10 mL vanilla 2 tsp


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt.
  3. In another bowl, mix the brown sugar, 125 ml (½ c.) soy beverage, canola oil, water, applesauce and vanilla.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the above mixture, alternating with the remaining soy beverage. As you add the ingredients, whisk as much air as possible into the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into a greased 26-cm (10-in.) tube cake pan. Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool then remove from pan.

* Milk: A number of brands of cocoa powder contain (or might contain) traces of dairy products. Don't hesitate to contact the manufacturer for more information.
