Vegan Chocolate Cake


This recipe was created especially for the “Creative Concoctions”, an event which is held in  Kopiaste.. to Greek Hospitality.
I decided to make a vegan cake, not only because more and more people are asking for vegan cakes nowadays, but because we are running a 50 day lend period before the Greek Orthodox Easter.
As I always do, I opened my fridge and kitchen cupboards and started gathering the ingredients which I thought could make a “tasty” marriage :-).
Below you can find the recipe which took me only 10 minutes to prepare. It is one of the easiest cakes I ever made and perfect with a cup of tea, coffee, cappuccino…  Enjoy!!
