Chocolate Cake

by Edward Daniel

Chocolate Cake is one of my lush recipes. It really is such a gorgeous delicious luscious gluten-free cake. What I love about this Chocolate Cake is the taste of chocolate which melds well with the lush chocolate icing. Note that with all my recipes, I use the minimum amount of sugar.

What to do next

Tag me on @ethiveganquantum on Instagram to show me what you’ve made and let me know you’re happy for me to share.

My recipes are featured in vegan speciality publications: Nourished, Vegan Life, Plant Based and Vegan, Food and Living.

Order my first self-published book, “Essence: The Beginner’s Guide to Veganism” part of the three-part Circle of Food series. My second book “Presence: The Ascending Vegan” – which explores how to maintain a vegan practice is out in 2027 – I have compiled all the chapters including recipes.

Going strong since 2013.
