Vegan Chocolate Cake

This vegan chocolate cake is so incredibly moist and light, is shocking how healthy it is for you! Even those indulgent cheat days will be good for you. At the foodies kitchen, we have been looking for alternative ideas for processed sugars and this our favourite so far.

We have added banana and raspberries to ours but almost any fruit will work (it gives it the sweet flavour, we know and love)

All prepared and cooking within an hour, this will be for sure a winner in any household!
