This easy vegan dessert has got it goin' on! Chilled brewed coffee brings out the depth of raw cacao; perfectly balanced by vanilla and a touch of real sugar or liquid stevia. Top it with raw chocolate ganache, or enjoy with fresh berries and coconut shavings.
Vegan Chocolate Cake
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously oil 8-inch square or round baking pan. Dust with sifted cacao, or line bottom of baking pan with .
To Make the Cake:
3. Add vinegar and stir briefly; baking soda will begin to react with vinegar, leaving pale swirls in batter. Without wasting time, pour batter into prepared pan.
4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve cake from pan, or, when cool, transfer to plate.
5. Frost with the vegan icing of your choice.
Raw Chocolate Ganache:
Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth, then pour and smooth over cake.
