Mod: Vegan chocolate molten lava cakes + vegan chocolate frosting

lava cakesAs part of a vegan dinner we were hosting, I wanted to make a molten lava chocolate cake version of the vegan chocolate cake we’ve made before. I couldn’t find any vegan chocolate, so had to get creative and use a slightly modified vegan chocolate icing recipe I have. The result was great. The centre wasn’t quite as luscious as if I had used a dark chocolate, but still turned out well.

Ingredients: (makes 8 small ramekin servings)

Cake:

  • 1-1/2 cups flour (regular all-purpose flour is fine)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil (or canola oil)
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 cup water
