As I mentioned on the previous page you may actually think this is cake is more of a chocolate peanut butter bread. It has a great texture that is just perfect with a nice cold glass of your favorite non-dairy milk.
You can upgrade this cake if you like with a big dollop of vegan ice cream on top. It is perfect for that. Or perhaps you’d rather go the vegan whipped cream route. Either way you go this is a delicious recipe you will make again and again.
