This festive and delicious cake is the perfect addition to any holiday party!
It’s the holiday season, and we all know what that means….. eating until our comfy pants no longer fit. I can’t tell you the number of requests I get for a vegan version of the traditional Christmas fruit cake. Unfortunately, if there is one thing I hate more than coriander and brussel sprouts, it’s a dense fruit cake. So I came up with an alternative that satisfies the needs of those of us who still want a warm hug in the flavor of a cake.
This Vegan Chocolate Christmas Cake with Spiced Ganache has all the beautiful things we love about the holidays — chocolate, warming spices, chocolate again, and pure decadence. It’s rich, moist and melts in your mouth with pockets of dates and melted chocolate, followed by the gentle kick of mixed spices and a hint of chilli. It’s one you won’t be able to stop eating, and it’s insanely simple to make.
You only need a whisk, a blender and a large bowl. This cake pairs well with mulled wine, hot tea or vegan egg nog.
