Today I bring you a delicious and velvety vegan chocolate cake filled with whipped cream and strawberries and decorated with red fruits. It is super fluffy and moist inside! Take a look at the recipe.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup of spelled (or wheat) flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup of coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp. of baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. of baking soda
  • 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ of oil (can substitute for coconut oil or vegetable butter - all melted)
  • 1/3 cup apple puree
  • ¾ cup of almond milk

Topping

  • 1 packet of whipped vegetable cream together with 2 tbsp. of agave (I used rice cream)

Instructions
  1. In a bowl, gather all the wet ingredients and reserve. In another bowl join the dry ingredients and mix them well.
  2. Gradually, and stirring constantly, add the wet and dry ingredients until you have a homogeneous mixture.
  3. Let the dough rest for 5min.
  4. After resting, stir again and place the dough in a greased and floured pan. (Place cocoa instead of flour in the pan so that the cake is darker and more beautiful)
  5. Bake at 180º for 30/35min.
  6. Allow the cake to cool completely before cutting it in half.
  7. Beat the cream with the agave. Separate 1/3 of the cream into a separate bowl and mix the sliced ​​strawberries with the rest.
  8. Cut the cake in half and fill it.
  9. With what's left of the cream, decorate the cake as you like. I put in strawberries, blueberries and some chia seeds.
  10. Take the cake to the fridge for at least 20 minutes or until serving. Enjoy!
