Vegan Chocolate Coconut Cake

I'm not vegan (ha!), but I have a surplus of cocoa powder and coconut on hand and felt like making a cake. The only hitch? No eggs.

A cake without eggs?

Totally not a problem.

Check it out (original recipe here):


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. Grease bottom of cake pan.
  3. Mix dry ingredients together. 

  4. Mix liquids (except vinegar).

  5. Whisk wet ingredients into dry. 

  6. When batter is smooth, add vinegar and stir quickly, until evenly distributed. Then add coconut and blend well.

  7. Put cake in the oven right away. 
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until done.

You could frost this, but I think it's plenty sweet on its own. The baking soda/vinegar chemical combo creates the sort of leavening trick eggs would normally create. You can always substitute for fun, too, like replacing the juice with rum. Bon apetit!
