(As a side note, if you want to take any of my recipes that call for sugar and make them refined-sugar-free, simply use a cup of coconut sugar or sucanat or evaporated cane juice for every cup of sugar called for in a recipe.)

Refined Sugar Free Chocolate Cake

  • 2/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or honey or agave)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or melted coconut oil (Or here is an Oil Free Chocolate Cake)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

Refined Sugar Free Chocolate Cake Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 F, and grease an 8-inch square or round baking pan. Whisk together the first 5 ingredients, and set aside for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl until well-mixed. Pour wet into dry, stir just until evenly mixed, and transfer to the prepared pan. Bake 20 minutes on the middle rack, or until cake is light and fluffy and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. (If using a 9-inch pan for a thinner cake, you may have to experiment with the baking time.)

    Hi, I just made this recipe and it did not rise and become light and fluffy. I think it’s because I used coconut cream instead of another milk. We also used gluten free flour which is rice and maize. We can not have dairy, soy gluten plus a whole heap of other things. Look forward to hearing.

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi, unfortunately different flours will have different effects on recipes, and you never know how one will work until you try… but if a certain flour isn’t listed, it means that Katie hasn’t tested it in that specific recipe and so doesn’t know how (or if) it could work. This is especially true with gluten free flours. GF all purpose, which is listed in the recipe, is meant to work like white flour and can be used in an even substitution, but rice flour doesn’t have the same ingredient makeup as gf all purpose, and unfortunately there’s just no way to know if it can be subbed in a recipe calling for all purpose flour unless you try.

    This looks and sounds so delicious!!! Could you use Whole wheat flour instead of spelt or AP flour? Thanks!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Will probably be more dense/dry, but should work! But you never know for sure unless you experiment. Be sure to report back if you try!

  3. Radhika says

    I’d love to make an orange infused version of this cake. Any thoughts on subbing the non dairy milk with orange juice?

  4. Maria Ruiz says

    Hello Refined Sugar Free Chocolate Cake | Vegan, GF Options shows a frosting in the picture and the recipe does not give the recipe of the liquid chocolate on top. How can you do it?

  5. Ashley says

    This looks absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to try it!

    How did you make the icing?

    Is that cane, brown and raw sugar free? and gluten free too?

  6. Kara says

    Thanks so much for this recipe! I tried it yesterday, along with the healthy chocolate sauce, and my family loved it. The only adjustment I had made was to use vegetable oil for the “icing,” as I didn’t have coconut oil on hand.

  7. Tracy Iadinardi says

    This was delicious! Not sure what I did wrong but it came out more like a Brownie.
    Still tasted great!

  8. Lexy says

    I have made this a couple of times now and really love it! It always turns out moist and soft. (I use almond milk and all purpose flour) No need for the chocolate on top. It is on the “lightly sweetened” side of things but that’s what I was hoping for especially since I was looking for a refined sugar free dessert! Thank you!!

  9. Melissa says

    Hi so I have a couple of questions!

    1: I only have a 9-inch round pan. Would I need to increase the measurements. If so, by how much?
    2: What were to happen if I used dutch processed cocoa powder?

    Thanks! I’m looking forward to making this for my boyfriend’s parents who think my desserts are normally too sweet haha 😉

  10. Sara says

    I’ve made this cake numerous times and we love it. It’s great with the Healthy Chocolate Frosting. I don’t think anyone could tell that it has no refined sugar. I’ve made it with regular flour and have also made the gluten free version. It’s fantastic either way. And made with pure maple syrup? Amazing!
