Chocolate and vegan in the same sentence? Say what? Best you believe it because it’s about to happen.
If you are a humble chocolate cake lover, but don’t quite enjoy the calories that come with it, try this easy vegan recipe and enjoy a guilt free slice of spongy goodness.
- 200g flour
- 35g raw cocoa
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 70g maple syrup
- 80g apple puree/sauce
- 50g grated 70% Lindt dark chocolate
- 1 cup almond milk (Almond breeze)
- 100ml water
- coconut oil for greasing
WHAT TO DO:
Before beginning with this recipe, make sure you have preheated your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease your cake tin with a pinch of coconut oil.
This has got to be the easiest cake recipe to date, so if you’re not quite Jamie Oliver in the kitchen, don’t stress. Let’s just say if I can do it, so can you!
Mix all of the above ingredients together, adding each ingredient slowly, one by one and beat/mix with a hand whisk until all lumps and bumps have disappeared.
After that, simply pour your mixture into your greased tin and bake for 35-40 minutes.
- 100g chocolate (Lindt 70% dark chocolate)
While your cake is cooling down on a grill rack, break your slab of chocolate into squares and melt in a bowl, over a pot of boiling water. When melted, pour/drizzle over your cake when placed on a serving stand. Add a sprinkle of almonds as a finishing touch and for decoration.
Finally, serve, and ENJOY!
Until next time,
