Inspired by the Bon Appetite, Nana's Chocolate Vinegar Cake recipe, we made our own 'Depression' Cake recipe with our raw & organic Apple Cider Vinegar. 

Chocolate Vinegar Cake  (1 of 1)-2.jpg


¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature

2 cups sugar

1 egg

2½ cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ cup cocoa powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

1½ cups water

2 scant tablespoons Vermont Village Raw & Organic Apple Cider Vinegar



1½ cups powdered sugar

¼ cup unsalted butter, room temperature

⅓ cup cocoa powder

¼ cup brewed coffee

Ground coffee


Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix dry cake ingredients together. In a medium sized bowl, mix the wet ingredients until fully combined and then add to the dry ingredients. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely before adding the frosting.

For the frosting combine powdered sugar and butter in a medium sized bowl.  Add cocoa powder and coffee and continue to mix until fully combined.  Frost cake and dust lightly with some coffee grounds.
