Perfect Chocolate Cake for Lazy Bakers 🍫

Long time, no see, my friends!

Since I’m the “I want everything, and I want it now” -type of person, I wanted to share with you a super simple chocolate cake recipe today. For this one, you don’t need hours of preparation, or not even many kitchen equipment, basically all you need is a bowl, a spoon, a fork and a cake tin. Yet, the cake is super rich and moist, I can assure you that you'll love it! I actually baked this cake a while back, and I'm craving it again now as I'm writing this! So, let's get to the recipe!


Sweet and simple chocolate cake


1 ⅓ cup (= 4 dl) all-purpose flour
1 cup (= 2.5 dl) sugar
⅓ cup (= 0.75 dl) dark cocoa powder (not the sugary one)
1 tbsp vanilla sugar
1 tsp baking soda
¾ tsp salt
1 cup (= 2.5 dl) water
½ cup (= 1.1 dl) vegetable oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar



Preheat the oven to 175 °C (= 350 °F). Butter and flour your cake tin. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add in the liquids. Pour the batter into the cake tin. Bake for approx. 40 minutes, try with a cocktail stick if it’s ready (the batter doesn’t stick). Let the cake cool down a bit before you remove it from the tin, and let it cool down properly before the next step.


While waiting for the cake to bake or cool down, lick the bowl (the best part of baking in my opinion!)

And then the frosting, since a chocolate cake isn’t chocolately enough without frosting!


50 grams vegan butter/margarine (do NOT melt it)
¼ cup (= 0.5 dl) dark cocoa powder (again, not the sugary one)
a little less than 1 cup (= 2.3 dl) powdered sugar
1-1.5 tbsp plant milk/water (you can also use cold coffee if you like it that way)
pinch of salt



Let the butter/margarine sit in room temperature for a while so that it becomes softer. Mix everything together using a fork and spread onto the cake.

If you wish to do something extra, then decorate with sprinkles or pieces of chocolate (why not both?).

Enjoy! 😋

Did I just drool on my keyboard?! I love chocolate EVERYTHING! And quick chocolate cake is just up my alley! What a delicious recipe @jasmink! Thanks for sharing. Have you perhaps tried substituting the margerine with coconut oil? I hate marg so I think I'm going to replace it

Oh, thank you so much @buckaroo! I haven't tried substituting the margarine with coconut oil, but I'm sure it would make a delicious cake as well! :)

wow, wow, this cake looks so delicious, I love chocolate cake. Thanks for the recipe.

You're welcome @proanima, and thank you for commenting! :)

Looks awesome. I like the four panel collage photo. Have to fight for the right to lick spoons in my house. lol Traditionally the honor goes to the youngest :)

Thank you! I remember as a kid, me, my sister and my brother were also always fighting about who gets to lick the spoons, lol. Good memories :)

That is definitely a strong way to come back to the game! Oh boy you've got my mouth watering. It's been a while since I've had a decadent slice of yummy vegan cake, but now I'm definitely craving one. :) Happy to see you back this week!
