Cake Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cups white sugar (270 g)
  • 1/2 cup and 2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (150 ml)
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, at room temperature (120 ml)
  • 1 cup brewed coffee or instant coffee (240 ml)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup cocoa powder (80 g)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240 g)
  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp baking powder

Chocolate Glaze Ingredients

  • 4 oz chocolate, chopped (100 g)
  • 1 cup vegan cream or heavy cream (240 ml)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) and grease a 10 to 12 cup bundt cake pan.
  2. Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat the eggs, sugar, and oil until creamy for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the milk, coffee, vanilla extract, and salt and whisk to combine.
  4. Sift the cocoa powder and whisk to mix everything.
  5. Then sift the flour and gently combine.
  6. Add the baking powder and gently combine.
  7. Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. When the cake has cooled down, make the chocolate glaze. Melt the chocolate with heavy cream and whisk until smooth. Wait until the ganache has cooled down a bit, achieved a creamier consistency, and then poured over the chocolate cake. 


Don’t overmix the batter: Overmixing the batter can result in a more dense and chewy cake. 

Sift the dry ingredients: Sifting all the dry ingredients while adding them to de mix will break up any lumps, combine them evenly with the other ingredients and make a perfectly smooth batter.

Weight the ingredients: Weighting all the parts when baking is crucial for the best result. Not adding the precisely correct amount of a specific ingredient when baking a cake can make the cake turn out too dense, too chewy, or too small.

Use good quality cocoa powder: Use a good quality cocoa powder for the best chocolate flavor.
