Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Vinegar Cake

One of my favorite guilt-free desserts to make on a whim is Chocolate Vinegar Cake. It's so easy to make and can be made at any time. I was so excited to make this recipe, however, I had one problem, I ran out of apple sauce, the stores have been super crowded, and I knew running to the store wouldn't be an option. I looked in my cabinets to see what I had on hand, I also had the thought of making homemade apple sauce. While looking in my cabinets, I found a can of pumpkin purée. I was super excited, and I honestly didn't know what to do. Of course, I started baking and made Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Vinegar Cake. I am so impressed with how this recipe turned out. It's super moist, and decadent. I love that this cake is not sweet, however, you can easily drizzle date syrup or your favorite ice cream or sliced fruits.
