Vegan Adonis Cake


Vegan chocolate cake for the Gods--moist and chocolaty. Jill made this cake for my 49th birthday party and it was a smash! The recipe comes from our good friend Betty and her wonderful eight-year old grandson Adonis.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare cake pan with non-stick cooking spray

In a mixing bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and mix well. Add maple syrup, apple sauce, vinegar, vanilla and water and mix well

Pour into a 9x9 cake pan- nonstick or sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

Place the silken tofu in a food processor. Add the melted chocolate chips to the food processor and blend.

Add the vanilla and blend until chocolatey and creamy. Taste at this stage; if using grain-sweetened chips, you may want to add a bit more maple syrup –or not! Trust your own taste.

Use immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.
