Dense, moist, and divine, each bite of this vegan cake is sweet, mildly chewy, and rich.
Whole wheat never tasted so good.
Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake… sans eggs, butter, milk, and unnatural oils (aka– canola).
(so good, it’s dangerous. Hot and dangerous).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients first…
- 1.5 cups oat flour
- 1.5 cups spelt flour
- 3/4 cup coconut oil
- 3/4 cup Stevia
- 2 tbsp Vanilla NuStevia
- 1 tsp Sea Salt
- 1/4 cup Agave
- 2 cups warm water
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa (I used Ghirardelli)
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Spoon into a greased cake pan… and cook for 30-45 minutes. Let cool, but hold off on refrigerating.
This cake will melt in your mouth, and is warm, dense, and chocolaty.
If you choose to refrigerate, you will find that the cake becomes very dense, much like a fudge brownie. It is delicious either way. Serve it up with a scoop of ice cream (coconut, or rice based), and glaze with warm chocolate fudge sauce.
Blend the following ingredients until smooth, and pour over cake when ready to serve!
- 2 tbsp coconut milk
- 1 tbsp hot water (to melt the coconut oil)
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
- 1 packet stevia
- 14 drops Vanilla NuStevia
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
For a thicker and healthier icing, substitute the coconut oil for 1 cup of young thai coconut meat.
As you can see… I enjoy proving to “The Skeptical” that natural, and/or vegan goods are not boring. This heavenly cake is hardly dull to one’s chocolate-loving taste buds, and… seeing that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, it is the perfect time to whip this one up, and share with loved ones. Last year I made a Raw, Cashew Fudge Ice Cream (there may be chocolate trend here).
(Just a point of fair balance, while this cake is tremendously healthier than your boxed variety, or baked goodies containing dairy, processed ingredients, or hydrogenated oils, it is still a cake. Cakes are not to be confused with a “health” food… but they sure are delicious).
Enjoy! I was caught red handed in chocolate crumbs… Oops!
P.S. The ice cream in the picture is non-dairy… Vanilla Rice Dream.
