Fluffy Chocolate Cake

As the name suggests, it’s a light textured cake that is still quite moist and decadent. I topped it with caramel frosting which was a hit with our chocolate and caramel loving kids.


  • 2 cups soy milk
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening (replacing lard)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda

Yield: one 13”x9” cake

Preheat oven to 300o.

Heat 2 cups of soy milk with the cocoa powder over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Add the shortening, eggs and sugar. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into a greased 13×9 pan and bake for 30 minutes or until done.
