Vegan Chocolate Cake With No Eggs, No Milk and No Butter
Vegan Chocolate Cake AKA Great Depression Chocolate Cake
The vegan chocolate cake with no eggs, no milk and no butter was created during the Great Depression, when eggs, milk and butter were expensive and hard to come by. The vegan chocolate cake is also known as the Great Depression Chocolate Cake.
The secret is to substitute eggs with vegetable oil and a bit of vinegar, which does the fizzy lifting. It truly works like a charm! This vegan chocolate cake is also healthier and low cholesterol, as it is made without eggs, milk and butter.
