Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Line with parchment paper the base of a 25cm springform cake pan and lightly grease its sides with a little bit of oil.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, salt baking soda and cocoa powder. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, mix the canola oil and soy beverage. Add to the dry mixture then mix well.
  4. Pour in the vinegar then blend well using a mixer until the mixture is homogenous, about 1 min. Do not over mix.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan and bake in the center of the oven for about 45-50 min. Check the cake with a toothpick or knife to see if it is cooked through. When done, pull the cake out of the oven then let it cool down in its pan for at least 30 min before unmolding.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare the icing: In a bowl, mix together the coconut oil, vanilla, icing sugar, cocoa powder and soy beverage. Pour the icing mixture on top of the cooled cake. Decorate with berries then serve.
