Day 8: Chocolate Cake with Ganache (30 Days of Vegan Recipes)

Monday, September 8, 2014

I made my very first vegan cake this weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had never baked a vegan cake before and didn't know what the results would be, but now I can say that it's very easy and quick and not complicated at all! Another thing, I even made a delish vegan chocolate ganache which I thought it was impossible in the beginning but I'm so glad that I was wrong. My husband loved the cake and so did my family, so this recipe is definitely a winner. Take a look:
