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.
Raw-Vegan Easter Eggs

Raw-Vegan Easter Eggs

What is your best Easter memory? Mine was when I was about 7 years old. For Easter that year, my mom made one of the most memorable GIANT treats platter for the kids in the family. I remember helping her prepare the chocolate pretzels (made with chocolate dough, rolled and shaped into pretzels). There were also mini cakes and all kinds of chocolates. My mom made everything from scratch and it was mind blowing. For this year's Easter, I did not make a platter but I made those raw-vegan eggs. There is very little refined sugar in those and no baking is required. The recipe will give you 18 eggs that you can decorate as you please. Who knows, these may become your best Easter memory.

Raw Marble Fudge

Raw Marble Fudge

raw chocolate fudge

This is my first raw recipe on the blog!! No bake, quick and easy.
This fudge is absolutely amazing. Not too sweet, not too rich, just the perfect combination of ingredients. It is lighter than regular fudge as it is made with avocado and coconut oil instead of heavy cream and butter. The longer you chill it, the better it gets so if you want to serve it to your guests, I suggest you make it the night before.
I must say that I had a hard time taking pictures of this dessert and not eating it all. By the 10th picture it was getting pretty difficult to make the plate seem full. Hahahaha. It was so worth it though!

Leave a comment below if you try it; I'd like to know what you think of it. If you share it on Instagram, don't forget to tag me @vic.r_c.

Thanks and Enjoy!
