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.

I always liked to cook quick and easy recipes. What I also like is variety in what I eat. I've made my ‘Apples-Cinnamon oat' a couple of times and now was the time for a new flavor.  I looked in my fridge and cabinets for a moment and I found some carrots and dates. I figured the mix of both couldn't be that bad so I gave it a try.  OMG!  Let me tell you: the house smelled so good, I wanted to lick the walls (but I did not)! All I can say is that it is: 

Rich 
Creamy 
Flavorful 
delightful 

This oat recipe and its subtle sweetness will make you fall in love with your breakfast all over again.
