Vegan Chocolate Cake for Luna

November 5, 2017lifepatisserie

My little niece Luna celebrated her first birthday last week, and of course I offered to make a birthday cake for her. As you maybe know Luna has egg and milk allergy so when making something for her I always go the vegan way. When you think vegan cake, you might think it will be dry and somehow inferior to a cake filled with eggs and butter. Well you are wrong …

I decided to make a chocolate cake but I wanted the cake to be light and moist, you really don’t need to compromise when you have severe allergy. I was inspired by the vegan food blog Oh She glows where you can be sure to find amazing vegan recipes. I also made a chocolate frosting, but used milk free butter which consists of coconut, shea, almond and rapeseed oil. Butter free frosting is always going to be a little bit different to work with as it can get softer a lot quicker but the taste is just as good.

As I wanted this cake to be 4 layers I made a double portion of the recipe, and I also wanted to have some fresh berries on top and I took a little bit of the frosting (equal to what I would put between 2 cake layers) mixed it with some fresh raspberries and put that in the middle of the cake. But this recipe is perfect for two 23 cm (9 inch) round tins or about 14 cupcakes.

    […] options for my little niece. I thought why not take the vegan chocolate cake that you can find here and try to make that a little bit more Christmas like. So I made it as cupcakes, used less cocoa […]
