Decadent Vegan Chocolate Cake

Decadent Vegan Chocolate Cake

This is a delicious, decadent cake with just the right amount of sweetness to it. It is a vegan cake but trust me, you won't taste the veganism in it! Baking has always been part of my family.  I was about 4 years old when I started baking with my mom. At the time, I was more interested in licking the batter off the spatula than anything else, but I have grown into loving baking. Back then, there was no such thing as "healthy" desserts. We were using eggs, cream, butter, sweet chocolate and we were adding full fat cream and maple syrup on top of the chocolate cake, just to make sure it was sweet enough (yes, that was a thing. I think some of my uncles still do that today!). Time has changed and I also changed. I no longer eat dairy products or refined sugar. I still like my sweets but I am now carefully selecting the ingredients I cook and bake with.
Chocolate-Raspberry Mousse

This Chocolate-Raspberry mousse has become one of the favorites in my house. Not only that it tastes amazing, but it is pretty simple to make. You can serve it into small glasses for a more sophisticated presentation or you can eat it directly from the jar (that is usually what I end up doing).  The raspberry mousse gives a nice contrast to the chocolate, and both together enhance one another.

I love, love, love that dessert as it is creamy and light, as well as rich and healthy. You can indulge without feeling too guilty. Keep in mind though that it all depends on the amount you eat. Moderation people, moderation.
