Perfect vegan chocolate cake (4 ingredients)


This heavenly vegan chocolate cake is actually a really old recipe of mine. It's from my Estonian vegan dessert cookbook, which was published on 2014. I've made this wonderfully easy cake countless of times. It's definitely my go-to recipe, when I want a no fuzz vegan cake recipe that is actually divinely satisfying. It's basically pure chocolate and you can feel it with every bite. A true chocoholic's dream! I've never met a person who didn't enjoy this decadent treat. What's even better - you can easily make this cake gluten-free by using gluten-free cookies.

How has been October treating you so far? For me, it has passed so quickly. I just started to get a glimpse of this gorgeous Fall nature and already the daylight begins to dim. But hey, there are tons of fun things to do even when it's dark outside. This week welcomes me with a meditation class and a metal show on Saturday. Maybe I'll even mosh! It's been a long time. I hope you'll have a lovely October and may you have all these little and big joys in your daily life. And don't forget to try this cake!

Serves: 9,4 inch / 24 cm round cake pan
Time: 15 minutes plus time in the fridge

Cookie crust:
  • 7 oz / 200 g vegan Digestive cookies (or vegan gluten-free cookies)
  • 3 ½ oz / 100 g vegan margarine or some coconut fat

Chocolate topping (ganache):
  • 14 oz / 400 g dark vegan chocolate (bar or chips)
  • 14 oz / 400 g can coconut milk

Directions:

Crush the cookies and mix them with margarine or coconut fat. Grease a round cake pan and cover the bottom with a parchment paper. Pour in the cookie mixture and press it down with your hands. Put the crust into a fridge, until you prepare the chocolate topping. 
Put the chocolate pieces or chips into a bowl. Bring coconut milk to a boil and pour the hot milk onto the chocolate. Stir, until you have an even and creamy mixture. Let the mixture cool for a few minutes and then pour it onto the cookie crust. Let the cake set in the fridge for a few hours or over night. Enjoy! If you want, you can decorate it with nuts, berries or vegan whipped cream.
