Recreation of Mom's Oatmeal Chocolate Cake 


This is adapted from my mother’s recipe which was famous among our family, friends and neighbours. Recently our dear long-time friend who was the biggest fan of the original recipe came to visit, so I recreated this vegan version hoping it would pass his test. It did!



1 plus 1 cup Boiling Water
1/2 cup Quick Cooking Rolled Oats
1 1/2 cups Pastry Flour
1/2 teaspoon each Baking Soda and Sea Salt
1/3 cup Flax “Eggs” 
1/2 cup each Pure Maple Syrup and Xylitol (aka Birch Bark Sugar)
1/2 cup Vegan Margarine
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract


1. Oats: Boil 1 cup of water and pour into a bowl with the oats; stir and set aside to cool to room temperature. 
2. Flax-Eggs: Boil 1 cup of water and add 1 tablespoon of whole flax seeds, stir and simmer 5 minutes. Strain out the liquid into a bowl. 
Oil and flour two 9 inch cake pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
3. Dry Mixture: Sift and combine the flour, baking soda and sea salt in a large bowl.
4. Liquid Mixture: A) In a small sauce pan heat the syrup, xylitol and margarine and whisk to emulsify. B) Add the cooled oats, flax-eggs, and vanilla to step A. Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and combine well so no lumps remain. Pour evenly into pans.
5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. The top-center will no longer be shiny and the cake will come away from the sides of the pan. Cool on racks for 30 minutes. Remove the cake from the pans and cool to room temperature. Spread with icing, sauce or topping of your choice.


Chocolate Icing:
1 package Silken Tofu, Extra-Firm
1/2 cup each Pure Maple Syrup and Xylitol
1/2 cup Vegan Margarine
1/2 cup Cashew Butter 
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt

1. Purée the silken tofu in a food processor until smooth.
2. In a small sauce pan heat the syrup, xylitol and margarine and whisk to emulsify. Add the syrup mixture and the remaining ingredients to the tofu and blend until smooth.
