Amazingly Rich Chocolate VEGAN Celebration Cake | Cupcake Jemma

It’s the last Vegan recipe in this series and it’s a big one! This is such a naughty cake for all of those chocoholics out there who need to get their plant-based cake on.

Recipe –

480ml soya milk (unsweetened)
2tps apple cider vinegar
240g sunflower or other vegan spread
400g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
430g self raising flour
60g cocoa powder
1 tbs baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 salt

To decorate, use my Vegan Buttercream, the chocolate version, which can be found here –
More chocolate (vegan of course!)

    I'm definitely making this for my birthday

  2. GuiltFreeFood says:

    You could use cake pan strips to avoid all that crumbs and you wouldn’t have to level the cakes

  3. 2020 sucks says:

    Cake is cake.

  4. Valentina Belen says:

    DEFINITELY trying this tomorrow 😻 One question: Does the sponge stays moisty once the cake is done? Or once u eat it it feels dry?

  5. Christine Griffiths says:

    My cakes were cooked but they sunk after coming out of the oven us thus normal please and my icing was really moussy and grainy not nice

  6. Sham Khan says:

    Heya… can we use that batter to make cupcakes instead of 1 big cake??

  7. Taif Faisal says:

    Can i use any plant based milk ? or do i have to use soy milk?

  8. Francisco Guijarro says:

    Thank you! More please jajajaa

  9. jennywren2302 says:

    Can you do a tutorial on a vegan vanilla sponge soon 😁 need to practice making my friends wedding cake but don't want to temptation of normal cake during veganuary 😅

  10. Mahaluxmi Dhruva says:

    Can I use margarine instead of vegan butter? We dön't get vegan butter here

  11. Helen Heywood says:


  12. Resh says:

    Jemma, I'm so sorry… I came for the cake… but I just want to say, you have really beautiful hands!!
    FYI My business mentor has told me to do 1 weird thing, and 1 thing that scares me everyday… this is my 1 weird thing 😀

  13. Nagavalli Somasundaram says:

    If im making a vegetarian cake instead of a vegan one, can i substitute the vegan spread for butter? Will the quantity be the same?

  14. Asma Salem says:

    Can I substitute the vegan spread with coconut oil???


    hmm i think i might try this recipe as cupcakes? might halve it tho 🤔 or would it be easier to adapt the red velvet ones to regular chocolate hmm hmmm hmmmmmm

  16. Enkh billionaire says:

    je suis vegan. c'est magnifique! Merci beaucoup.

  17. Savita Savita says:

    Hello how are you I am hungry and you are taking this cake how are you I am angry with you

  18. Piotr Niewiadomski says:

    Have you tried using aquafaba? as a either egg replacer in cake recipie or as a base for vegan meringue or some sort of vegan meringue buttercream?

  19. Sheila May says:

    Wow what a simple vegan recipe I can’t wait to try this! I’ve got a question.. with a regular sponge you would cling wrap it in the fridge to harden up hours (or a day) before using it. Would that be ideal and easier for when you come to put the icing on or would that ruin the sponge in any way in terms of softness, moistness, etc?

  20. icelander 22 says:

    Would it be ok to put it in one big cake tin? Becouse i want to put a logo and some writing on it and it would not fit like this

  21. Julija labanauskaitė says:

    More vegan recipes pleeeease!

  22. Jes Mullins says:

    I found your channel looking for vegan cake decorating tips. Loving your channel, I hope you continue to include more vegan content 🙂

  23. Lisa Chambers says:

    I am new to finding you and I'm so excited. Being vegan really limits the options for sweet treats sometimes. This is gonna be so fun to finally show everyone that I'm not missing out on anything. Can't wait for the next family function. Thanks!

  24. NanaAma Adomah says:

    Hi Gemma, would vegetable based margarine work well with this vegan recipe?

  25. Karla says:

    Has anyone tried this without the chocolate? Vanilla type cake?

  26. Isabel Berman says:

    can i use almond milk instead?

  27. Kiran Johal says:

    Can I make this recipe with an 8 inch pan ? Will I have to adjust the recipe and baking time?

  28. Ellen's Kitchen says:

    I have made this cake and let me say it is AMAZING! I decorated it with some Oreos and cherries and it was a hit. Thanks Jemma

  30. JACQUELINE C says:

    I'm Brazilian and I would love to make this cake.
    But I don't find sunflower or other vegan propagation here
    And this one with flour and yeast is gluten free?

  31. Ananya Malla says:

    Hey! I'm not a vegan but I'm looking for eggless recipe so, can I use normal milk and butter in this recipe!?
    Thank you

  32. Kakesnmore Summerston says:

  33. Goli R says:

    @CupcakeJemma looks amazing 😍 can we use almond milk instead of soy milk?

  34. Molly O'Hagan says:

    Yummmmmm!!!!! Please more vegan recipes <3

  35. Amanda Murphy says:

    I wonder if using a flax egg would help with cake be sturdier and not so delicate?

  36. Sarah S. says:

    Please make more Vegan Cakes😍

  37. roopsi bargujar says:

    Thanks jemma..💐

  38. Lauren Kelleher says:

    Hi Jemma! Or anyone else on here who may know. When you say 170 degrees Celsius, does that mean 170 degrees in a standard oven? Are all the temperatures given as convection oven temperatures and then we should adjust to standard oven temperatures? or are the temperatures given on all of your videos directly translatable to standard ovens? I never realized there was a difference until recently. and it's a pretty big difference. Thank you! Absolutely adore you and all your recipes : ) So inspiring and lovely.

  39. Gr8CanadianMom says:

    +CupcakeJemma Can this recipe be made with Rice milk instead of soy? (For those who do not have soy)

  40. rashvinder kaur says:

  41. raisinthief says:
