Eggless Orange Chocolate Cake

"Explore the Vegetarian Chef in YOU!"

An exceptional Orange Chocolate Cake made without eggs -- pumped up with delicious candied orange peel.

This cake is so tender, so chocolaty and so sweet-tart with the orange peel bits and bobs in it -- its bound to become as much a favorite in your vegetarian kitchen as it has in ours. It is simply superb.

You can even make your own candied orange peel from organic oranges for this treat. Here is a word of caution on that score – if you love candied orange peel and chocolate covered candied orange peel as much as we do -- you will want to triple the recipe! MMMM MMMM MMMM! Yes! Chocolate Covered Candied Orange Peel makes a great gift too! So you will want to do that as a separate project which is scheduled for a different day.

Prepare two 18 X 11  cake pans with butter and flour and place a waxed paper liner you have cut to fit in the bottom of each pan.


  • 4 Cups Organic Sugar
  • 2 Sticks Butter
  • ¾ Cup Green and Black Organic Unsweetened Cocoa or some other fine Cocoa.
  • 4 Cups Organic Cake Flour
  • 2 Cups RO Water
  • 1 Cup Buttermilk
  • 1 Cup Organic Unrefined Corn Oil
  • 3 tsp Baking Soda
  • ½tsp Sea Salt
  • 3 tsp Ener-G Egg Replacer or OrgraN No Egg
  • 1 Cup Candied Orange Peel.
  • 2 tsp Frontier Herb Co’s Orange Extract
  • 1 tsp Frontier Herb Co’s Vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 350º

Cream Butter and Sugar for ten full minutes until it is very light and fluffy. Mix dry ingredients together. Add them alternately with the Buttermilk and RO Water. Pour into the prepared pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the cake; the cake pulls away from the edges of the pan and is springy to the touch.

Allow to cool on a wire rack for ten minutes before turning out onto a large wire rack. When cool fill with our Orange Cream Filling and frost with Chocolate Ganache or our Sour Cream Frosting. The end result is an extraordinary Eggless Orange Chocolate Cake!

Learn how to make your own candied orange peel, orange cream filling, and the butter cream frosting.
