❤ CHOCOLATE TOFU CAKE ❤
This chocolate cake is one of my families favorites. The recipe is vegan, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, is really moist and tastes great !!
The secret ingredient in this recipe is Tofu When you bake cakes without eggs & butter -you often end up with a dry crumbly cake. So when I first experimented with Plant Based cakes I tried many ingredients to add a moist texture. Tofu is one that I use – and it works a treat ! …
I have iced this cake with a chocolate ganache, sprinkled it with cacao nibs, and then dressed it with berries and edible flowers 🌺…
