Vegan nutella chocolate cake!


Something quite different from my norm over here 🍰

Special occasion calls for a quick birthday cake whip up.

I certainly can’t say that this one falls under the “whole foods” category, but a treat here or there isn’t such a bad thing.. especially if you already consume a whole foods plant based diet.

Here we’ve got a classic chocolate cake, covered in a chocolate hazelnut spread (a homemade alternative to Nutella), and topped off with some choc hazelnut crumbs. 🍫

Quite a rich (and delicious) little number - but very very easy to make!


 

A little handy fact for an egg replacement:

Mix 1 tbsp. ground flaxseeds with 3 tbsp of water and let sit for 5 minutes. One of these creations is equal to one egg.

1 cup Castor Sugar

1 cup Cocoa

1 & 1/3 cups Plain flour
