Easy Vegan Brownies

Updated on February 20, 2014

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.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: This small cake can still serve 8 big slices

      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!
