80 g cocoa powder 

¾ tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 ½ tsp cider vinegar

150 ml sunflower oil

2 tsp vanilla extract¼ tsp salt


Vegan Ganache:

350 ml full fat coconut milk, using Coconut Merchant

What’s included in the Vegan Ganache?

  • 01

    350g chopped vegan chocolate, using 4 bars of NOMO Creamy Choc (85g each)

  • 02

    350 ml organic coconut milk, using Coconut Merchant

Instructions

Step 1: Whisk together the Vegan Chocolate Ganache

Put the chopped vegan chocolate in a heat-proof bowl. Heat the coconut milk just before it's boiling and pour it over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Cover and place it in the fridge for 2 hours to cool.

Step 2: The Oven

Preheat the oven to 180C and grease three 6inch round tins and line the bases with baking paper.

Step 3: Mix the ingredients and Bake

Mix the almond milk and vinegar in a bowl. Add the sugar, vanilla extract and the oil. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. Slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry until smooth. Divide the batter evenly between the tins and bake for about 30 minutes, until the centre is fully baked. Rest the cakes to cool in the tins for 30 minutes then carefully turn them out onto a cooling rack.

Step 4: Assemble the Cake

Place a layer on a cake stand. The ganache should be nice and spreadable. Spread 1/3 of the ganche over the first cake layer and place another cake on top, spread over another 1/3 of the ganache and repeat. Decorate it with fresh raspberries, or extra vegan chocolate. Allow to rest at room temperature and serve. Enjoy
