Chocolate Fudge Cake

This recipe comes from the old website, who say that their non-vegan friends have never noticed that it is a vegan cake - we can quite believe it!


4oz (125g) soya margarine
½ pint (300ml) soya milk
2 tbsp of golden syrup
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
8oz (250g) plain flour
2oz (50g) cocoa
8oz (250g) sugar


We didn't have to cook this for as long as suggested, so keep an eye on the cake and take it out of the oven earlier if necessary.



Melt margarine, syrup and soya milk, except 4 tablespoons, in a saucepan. Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in remaining soya milk. Sieve all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Line an 8" (20cm) baking tin with greaseproof paper or baking parchment. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake in oven 180C / 350F / Gas 4 for ½ hour. Reduce to 160C / 300F / Gas 3 for 1¼ hours.

Once cooled, cover with melted dairy-free chocolate (eg Plamil chocolate). Yum!
