Vegan Chocolate Vinegar Cake

by - 3/29/2018 10:30:00 AM

As promised, last week I mentioned that I stumbled upon a vinegar cake and I was inspired to try a healthier alternative. Though a vinegar cake in itself is dairy-free. I wanted to see what I could come up with on my own. My first trial run with this recipe was a success. I was so surprised at how yummy this recipe turned out. I even had the Mister try it and he loved it. It's so decadent, moist and very flavourful. It was so good that I made it for a second time on Sunday and I honestly ate most of the cake that day. It was that good! This time around I did not dust the cake with Cacao powder because I really didn't get the chance and it's actually delicious without or without it. I typically always keep homemade oats flour on hand and I ran out and had to make more. That's another super easy recipe that I can't wait to share with you guys. It's so easy to make homemade oats flour only two ingredients!

Anywho, have you tried any new recipes lately?
