The Best (Vegan) Chocolate Cake… with Cassis Liqueur

I know that this is a rather bold statement to make, but trust me on this one: THIS. IS. THE. BEST.

Seriously, if you would serve this chocolate cake to a vigorous, I-would-rather-have-a-large-ecological-footprint-than-ever-eat-anything-vegan Dumbass, he would eat it all up, because you really cannot tell that this cake is entirely dairy-free and vegan.

it is unctuous, moist, scrummy in your tummy, delicious!

Add to that some gorgeous Cassis Liqueur, which I drizzled over the top of the cake and you just know that this cake couldn’t be anything other than sheer perfection.

PS: if you’ve been wondering why Fashion, Food & Flirts has been so absent these past couple of weeks, please rest assured, because everything will explain itself shortly! I’ve been working on a brand new concept/project, which I will share with y’all soon! So bear with, dear readers. Bear with!
