Vegan Chocolate Almond Cake

Vegan Chocolate Almond Cake 2

Hello There,

With Thanksgiving around the corner I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen, trying out various recipes to be prepared for the big day. Today I am posting about this yummy vegan choc almond cake that is really easy to make. I had made this cake for a special event and hence the decoration on the top. You can make a healthier version of it without the frosting. You can even replace sugar with dates for the sweetness. Hope you enjoy baking it as much as I did.

Ingredients:

  • ⅓ cup almonds
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp lemon
  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose Flour
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup canola oil (I used olive oil instead)
  • 1½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pack Chocolate frosting
  • 1 tube white colored frosting
  • Other cake decorations as needed

Steps:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375F
  2. Coat a 9 inch round cake pan with oil or butter
  3. In a blender, blend almonds with almond milk and add the lemon juice and sugar to it
  4. In a big bowl add flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. Mix the canola oil with the vanilla extract and add it to the almond mixture. At this point your batter should be ready
  6. Bake it in the oven for about 30 – 40 minutes
  7. Now, to frost it, I used store brought chocolate frosting. Unfortunately, there is no low-fat version of this.
  8. Then I decorated the cake with the white frosting and voila, it’s ready. 🙂

Enjoy this for dessert with coffee or tea and have a great thanksgiving.
