‘What is *actually IN this cake?’, I hear you cry…I get it, I really do, but believe me, a heck of a lot of deliciousness resides in it, as it goes and it will hopefully please everyone, promise! I made it with the epic Magimix 4200XL BlenderMix Food Processor (which you can win at the bottom of this post)!

Gluten, Dairy & Nut-Free Chocolate Cake


Vegan, Gluten & Nut-Free Chocolate Cake

a slice of vegan cake

With my eldest child so and I both intolerant to eggs and me gluten, too as well as certain nuts, this cake is my go-to. What’s more, I even prefer the taste to standard chocolate cake so please don’t worry you might feel you’re missing out-by actually missing out certain ingredients. You won’t be.  This vegan, gluten and nut-free chocolate cake will honestly wow your friends and family!

gluten-free chocolate cake


  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free flour (we like Doves Farm) 
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dairy free cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable/ melted coconut oil
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of cinammon
  • 1 cup cold water
  • squeeze of lemon
  • 1/2 cup (dairy free) chocolate chips/ pomegranate seeds 
  • chocolate chips/pomegranate seeds for decoration

Vegan icing:

  • 1 cup (dairy free) chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free milk of choice (we like oat milk)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or dairy-free unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the oil, vanilla, cinnamon, lemon, water and chocolate chips and whizz in the Magimix blender.  Once fully mixed, pour into a cake dish (8 inches) and bake for half an hour. Check its cooked through by placing a skewer into the middle. If it comes out clean, it’s ready. If you want to make a larger cake, bake two to top on one another and double the icing, spreading a layer in the centre to stick each cake together!

To make the icing, melt the icing ingredients today on a low heat and stir. Refrigerate for 20 minutes then spread onto the the cake with a spatula. Decorate as you wish. We made two cakes, with chocolate chips and then with pomegranates too.
Frustratingly, we used up all the dairy free chocolate chips inside the cake so decorated with dairy chocolate chips (we don’t avoid dairy as a family) but do decorate yours without if that’s your preference. The cake recipe is fully dairy, gluten and nut far bar the topping.

    I would love to win this so I can do some baking with my daughter and make smoothies to. Thankyou for the competition. x

  2. charlotte

    I’m vegan, my partner is intolerant to gluten. My poor little Kenwood is suffering with all the recipes I am now trying. This looks excellent recipe though – great to have one I don’t have to adapt myself 🙂

    I would really love to win this because I really miss being able to bake cakes since becoming disabled, having to use a wheelchair and having badly arthritic hands means I can no longer mix with a whisk by hand or hold a hand held mixer/blender to make the cakes I love like banana loaf cake and home made carrot cake as well as buttrrfly cakes. So if I won this it would really mean a lot to me and really make a difference because I would then be able to make so many more healthy things to eat and being on disability benefits would otherwise mean I would never get to buy one myself. Thanks.

    We keep talking about buying a blender but never quite get round to it because there’s always something we need more. Would be great to win one and not have to have any excuses any more 🙂

    My daughter has just got her own house would be a lovely addition to her current appliances although she doesn’t have many!

    I have just moved house and we are having a new kitchen early next year which of course I want to kit out with some fabulous things like this.

  11. Joanne Heath

    I have signed up to the London Marathon and it is going to be the biggest challenge I have ever faced! (currently only can run 3 miles and taken me a while to get to this point!) I need to now start sorting out my diet, and being more organised. I feel this will be amazing! I seriously need all the help I can get! Everything crossed!

  12. Allan Smith

    I would love to win because my other half keeps nagging me for a decent blender 🙂
