CHOCOLATE CAKE

 

Vegan Chocolate Cake by Aly CJ Cooks

Vegan Chocolate Cake

A delicious light and rich deep flavoured chocolate cake. Not sweet and perfect for afternoon tea, dessert or any other time you feel like cake.
You probably know by now that whilst some of my recipes look fiddly and faffy, they're actually quite easy to achieve in a home kitchen as much as they are in a private catered client premised or restaurant.
This simple recipe requires a couple of bowls and a spatula.. some scales and of course you baking trays.
Check out the video below for the full effect experience! Let's bake!

Notes

You can freeze the cake in portions or whole. Wrap first in parchment and then tightly in cling wrap or an airtight container / freezer bag
If using aquafaba instead of coconut cream for your ganache, you will need around half a teaspoon of cream of tartar to the drained liquid of 1 450g can of chickpeas..to help the whipped liquid 'hold' and stabilise. You can freeze the remainder 'whip' and scoop out for iced coffees with a splash of syrup!
You can split your cake batter between 2 smaller tins of around 7 inches, and double the recipe if you want a larger layer cake
Add cinnamon or ground ginger to the flours for an extra flavour kick!

ABOUT ALY

I began my career in restaurants and hotels, and quickly progressed to the role of private chef on superyachts and in private households. In my late teens, I developed a passion for vegetariand and plantbased cooking and this quickly became my speciality. I still cook everything,, I’m a chef after all! But my preference will ALWAYS be plantbased.
