Recipe – Vegan Chocolate Cake

Many wedding guests, parents and even couples have a strict vegetarian diet, which includes not eating eggs. For cake lovers this is a hard one as there are not many wedding cakes made without eggs. We were so excited to find out that Southern California baker Sweet Cheeks Baking Co makes wedding cakes with no eggs YAY!  They were kind enough to share with us their recipe for an egg free cake.

This Vegan Chocolate Cake recipe can be used to make traditional cake, cupcakes, and even our Dimples (cake cookies). It can also be used it in loaf form to create slices perfect for snacking – no icing needed!


1 cup – All-purpose flour (sift)
1/4 cup – Wheat germ
1/4 cup – Flaxseed

1 tsp – Baking soda
1 tsp – Salt
3 Tbsp – Dutch processed cocoa powder (sift)
1/3 cup – Vegetable oil
1 Tbsp – White vinegar
