Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe

This chocolate cake is easy to make and contains ingredients you usually already have in your cupboards (at least I do!). So put on your apron and get baking!

Using a mix of soy milk and apple cider vinegar is my favorite way of making a vegan egg substitute. The milk starts to curdle immediately after adding the vinegar, but nonetheless you should stir the mixture well and then leave it for about five minutes.
