Easy Vegan Brownies

Wacky Cake

Need something that is so easy to bake, vegan, and delicious? Then this is the recipe for you! The results will be somewhere between a chocolate cake and a brownie, moist and somewhat thick in texture. I find it comes out the most moist with a glass pan and the most chewy with a cast iron pan.


  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Cup Applesauce, (This can be substituted with yogurt or vegetable oil.)
  • 1 teaspoon Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup Water


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Grease or flour 8 X 8 pan
  3. Mix all ingredients together (order is not important)
  4. Bake for 25-35 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
  5. For added beauty and flavor you can frost this cake and even add fresh berries to the top.

Thank your for the recipe! I didn't have flour, so I used oat bran instead and it was delicious.

Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the comment. I love to know when something's been appreciated. :) I would have never thought to substitute the flour with anything but I guess you could if you were out or had wheat allergies. Good to know.

I would love to try to make it someday, even if I'm not a vegan. Voted up for useful! Looks delicious!
