Then I experimented with a chocolate-walnut cake. I had made walnut milk the night before so used that, with some crushed walnuts, and a couple of heaped table spoons of cocoa powder, to characterise the rest of the ingredients. When it came out of the oven I melted chocolate truffles over the top as the icing. It was absolutely deliciously decadent!
|Vegan Coconut Cake|
2 cups of flour
1/2 a cup of coconut shreds
1/2 a cup of sugar
1/4 to 1/2 a teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tin coconut milk (i.e. two cups)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
Mix the dry ingredients together. Then add the coconut milk and mix well. Poor into a greased pan and bake for around 40 minutes, or until a testing utensil (e.g. knife -- I use a chopstick) comes out dry.
I topped my cake with condensed milk, but I'm sure you can find a vegan alternative instead.
It is not a very big cake. Maybe four big slices, so great for a small group of friends or a nuclear family.
Enjoy it with fruits and Rooibos tea!
