Most people enjoy a slice of cake, so here are some nice homemade recipes, made with real plant-based ingredients, and no plastic packaging.
One-Bowl Chocolate Sponge with icing (The Veg Space) is perfect for special days. It’s made with oil, plant milk and vegan yoghurt, and a delightful rich fudge chocolate icing. This recipe uses vegan yoghurt. Plain is best, look in health stores for better brands if you can’t find good ones in groceries. Sojade is a good brand from France, made in a solar-powered factory with organic ingredients. You can recycle the packaging with household waste.
Use vegan butters with no palm oil. Keep these recipes away from pets due to toxic ingredients (chocolate, nuts, avocado, dried fruits, nutmeg, fresh dough, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol and xylitol).
Best Vegan Chocolate Cake (Crowded Kitchen) is gluten-free and super-rich with lots of chocolate, and a vegan buttercream frosting. It’s also easy to make in a sheet pan, no layers – all you need are two bowls.
Epic Vegan Chocolate Cake (The Happy Pear) is sweetened with maple syrup, then frosted with a ganache and grated chocolate, and sandwiched with a maple-sweetened raspberry coulis.
Epic Vegan Chocolate Cake (Addicted to Dates) is light and airy, but with lots of chocolate. The layers of chocolate cake are sandwiched with Swiss chocolate vegan buttercream.
Vegan Chocolate Treats is the ideal book for anyone with a sweet tooth. Recipes include Raspberry Chocolate Dream Cake, Salted Caramel Chocolate Truffles and Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie.
