Chocolate Sour Cream Cake (vegan)

This chocolate cake is a necessary part of your dessert catalogue. It's rich enough but not too heavy; sweet enough but not too sickly, and moist enough but not at all soggy. 

Made with vegan sour cream (I recommend Dibble - honestly the best plant-based sour cream I've tried, and I've tried many!), it's a lovely dessert, made extra tasty with an easy-to-make, sticky glaze. If you look closely at some of the photographs, you can even see my reflection!

You can add more sugar if you like a really sweet cake, and add choc-chips if you feel so inclined.

Ingredients for the cake

  • 260g plain flour
  • 210g caster sugar (or more, if you like your cakes sweet)
  • 60g cocoa powder
  • 1 tbs Greek ground coffee
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 320ml almond milk
  • 1/4 cup (approximately 50g) vegan sour cream (I used Dibble!)

Ingredients for the icing

  • 2 tbs glucose, warm
  • 1 tbs vegan milk
  • 1.5 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tbs brown sugar

Instructions for the cake

  • Preheat oven to approximately 190 degrees Celsius and grease a bundt cake tin.
  • In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, coffee, baking powder and soda until there are no lumps.
  • Slowly add milk and sour cream, and mix until just combined. If your mixture is too thick (it should be thick but still easy to mix) add a little more milk.
  • Pour into prepared tin and bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely before removing from the cake tin and icing. 

Instructions for the icing

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth.
  • Drizzle over cake, add toppings and serve!
