Vegan Chocolate Stout Bundt Cake

Warning: this cake is addictive. Chocolate. Beer. Cake. What's not to love?

So I wouldn't necessarily classify this as a "healthy" recipe by any means. But every now then a decadent treat is perfectly acceptable! On a side note, keep in mind that "vegan" does not always equal healthy. Oreos are vegan! Not what I'd call a health food.

This recipe is adapted from the blog Life Tastes Like Food (cute name, don't you think?). I used Rogue Stout in this recipe, but Guinness or any other brand stout would works just as well. I also used stout in the icing, but if children will be eating this, I'd recommend using milk to prepare the icing instead.


Vegan Chocolate Stout Bundt Cake
Serves 12-16

  • 2 1/4 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Rogue Stout
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Rogue Stout

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a bundt cake pan very well. Dust pan lightly with cocoa powder.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the stout, oil, and vanilla.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until thoroughly mixed. Add the chocolate chips.
  5. Batter will be quite thick. If batter is too thick to fully incorporate the ingredients, add a small splash of stout.
  6. Pour the batter into the bundt pan. Smooth evenly with a rubber spatula.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove cake from oven and allow to cool 10 minutes before inverting the pan. Allow to cool completely.
  8. While the cake is cooling, prepare the icing. Mix together powdered sugar with 1 tbsp stout. Add additional stout (tablespoon by tablespoon) as needed until desired consistency is reached.
  9. When cake is completely cooled, drizzle with icing. Serve!
