BAKE MY DAY’S VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP FUDGE CAKE

CAKE INGREDIENTS
450g plain flour
35g cocoa powder
1 and half teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda
1 and half teaspoons of baking powder
300g light brown sugar
300ml water
125ml sunflower oil
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
20ml white wine vinegar
100g vegan chocolate
BUTTERCREAM INGREDIENTS
600g icing sugar
6 tablespoons soya milk
90g cocoa powder
165g dairy free butter
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

METHOD
Preheat fan assisted oven to 160.
Grease (with a little sunflower oil) and flour 2 x 9″ sandwich tins, then line the bottoms with grease-proof paper.
Mix wet ingredients together along with the sugar.
Whisk all the dry ingredients (apart from the chocolate) together separately.
Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until combined.
Divide the mixture between the tins.
Chop the chocolate into small chunks and scatter over the cakes, giving a little press down here and there.
Bake for around 30-35 minutes.
Let the cakes cool whilst you get on with the chocolate buttercream.
Simply mix all the ingredients together gently with a wooden spoon then beat until smooth.
Spread a third over one cake then sandwich the other cake on top.
Pile the rest of the buttercream on top of the cake and work the buttercream over the edges of the cake with a pallet knife.
Keep spreading the buttercream all the way around the cake until it’s completely covered and neaten off until you’re happy! Enjoy!
