Pregistry’s Friday Recipe: Vegan Chocolate One-Bowl Cake and Frosting

If you need a really (really!) good chocolate cake but have to accommodate egg and/or dairy allergies, look no further!

This one-bowl chocolate cake is rich, moist, delicious and completely free of dairy and eggs. And since no proper chocolate cake would be served without frosting we’re giving you a decadent chocolate frosting that is dairy-free too!

Sprinkles are optional but highly recommended.

And best of all, you can double this recipe to make a 9 x 13 sheet cake or 24 cupcakes!

Vegan Chocolate One-Bowl Cake and Frosting:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 9 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 6 tablespoons non-dairy spread
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • Chocolate sprinkles (optional)

Make the cake: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees; grease and flour an 8” x 8” pan. Combine the flour, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, salt, granulated sugar and baking soda in a large bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of the vanilla, vinegar, vegetable oil and water and stir to combine well.

Pour batter into your prepared pan and bake till a tester tests clean, 35 – 40 minutes. Cool cake completely in pan on a wire rack.

Make the frosting: Place the confectioner’s sugar, remaining 6 tablespoons cocoa powder, remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla, non-dairy spread and almond milk in a medium bowl. Beat till smooth.

Frost the cake and top with sprinkles, if using.

LEGO Car Wash Sensory Bin

INSIDE: LEGO Car Wash Sensory Bin is a fun and easy sensory bin activity that your toddler or preschooler is going to love! Let them build and then wash their LEGO trucks and cars in their very own carwash!

Water Sensory Bins

I love a good water sensory bin and this LEGO car wash sensory bin is no exception. When I had the idea I honestly couldn’t believe that I hadn’t though of it before! Of course! Washing LEGO! So fun! I have frozen lego before but never washed it like in this activity.

We used our DUPLO LEGO set for this activity. This was perfect because we had a number vehicles with that set to use in the activity. So many that there was a line up of cars to get into the car wash (pretty much exactly like a real car wash!)

The Best Sensory Play Kits for Kids

Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.

Our Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!

How to Set Up Lego Car Wash Sensory Bin

  1. I wish I had thought about letting my toddler build the car wash themselves before doing this activity. For preschoolers, I would let them build it themselves. They can design their own car wash. You can show them this picture for inspiration.

  1. Using foam sheets create the foam washing brushes so iconic to car washes. I also created a small sign saying Car wash.

  1. Attached these to the front of the car wash using duct tape. NOTE: As my toddler played the adhesive on the tape started to give and I eventually removed the the foam washing brushes. But it did not effect how much fun they still had with this activity.

  1. Next prepare two squeeze bottles. The first will have a small amount of washable brown paint and the rest with water to create the “dirt” your child will put on the cars and trucks. (If you are doing this activity outside your could create a watery mud solution for them to squeeze on. The second squeeze bottle will have soapy water in it.

  1. Hand your toddler or preschooler a few sponges and let them play!

How They Played with the LEGO Car Wash Sensory Bin

First off, this was an instant hit and I had to refill the squeeze bottles with “dirt” and soap several times. I didn’t want to give them larger containers of these materials since it would have created a large mess. The squeeze bottles are a great fine motor tool and they also helped to contain the mess.

They loved dirty up the cars and then scrubbing them clean again with the soapy water and sponges! We did this activity inside in the winter but I plan to do it again this summer outside!

Age Suitability

This activity is good for kids 2.5 years and up . My kids are 3, 3, and 6 year old.
