i’ve been vegan for around 5 months now, and i feel great. keeping the environment in mind always motivates me to continue with this lifestyle and i encourage everyone to do the same – just give it a shot!
today, i decided to bake some chocolate goodness…
here you see chocolate cake, with bits of almond butter chocolate in it, a splash of peppermint extract, sprinkled with cacao nibs on the top.
tell me that doesn’t sound good.
i used the recipe my mother created the previous time, it is so easy and i think quite dumb-proof. i suck at anything that involves prepping my own food, and this turns out pretty damn good, so.
(as i was typing that i forgot i was boiling water and
almost wasted too much gas and burnt down the house)
i actually used the ever-amazing air fryer for this, but i’m pretty sure the oven would work just as fine too. here’s the recipe!
VEGAN FUDGY CHOCOLATE CAKE
1 cup flour (if you’re not using self-raising flour, add 1 tsp of baking powder)
1 cup sugar (i used 1/3 coconut sugar, but it’s totally up to you)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup oil (feel free to use any)
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp vanilla
additional toppings (optional)
chocolate/ chocolate chips
peppermint extract (mmm)
or whatever you fancy!
mix all the dry ingredients. afterwards, create a well and pour in the wet ingredients. top it off with some chocolate, pop it into the oven for around 15-20 mins at 180 degrees celcius.
while it’s baking, wash up and most importantly, lick the bowl clean.
once the cake is done, let it cool and brace yourself for one of the most delicious, fudgy chocolate cakes that you will probably finish in one go. try not to though.
hope you try it out and let me know what you think!
