Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Vegane Schoko-Himbeer-Torte

I have to admit, I am not that much into vegan cakes, but with this vegan chocolate raspberry cake I may be converted. I honestly can’t say whether I prefer this one to the non-vegan version. It all starts with a moist chocolate layer cake. I love the fact that you basically have to throw the ingredients together, whisk them and that’s about it. The raspberry filling is also the perfect companion for the chocolate. And don’t get me started on the frosting. It only contains two ingredients: chocolate and coconut cream, yum! And don’t worry, the coconut flavor is very subtle, I don’t really like coconut and I had a hard time tasting it, so I am sure you will be fine.

I honestly don’t feel like talking too much about this cake. Is it rich? Most definitely! But I believe it is worth each and every calorie. I was in chocolate heaven when I ate it. Did you know that I have an everything chocolate category on this blog? I am a huge fan of chocolate, I don’t think that is ever going to change. And I believe it’s best to stop talking and let the pictures speak for themselves.  Maybe this vegan chocolate rasberry cake is also whispering your name, asking you to bake it?

Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Cake

By Jennifer Warkentin Serves: One 20cm/8 inch cake
Prep Time: 30min Cooking Time: 25min

This vegan chocolate raspberry cake has a moist chocolate cake as the base, is filled with raspberry preserve and contains a chocolate frosting with only two ingredients, chocolate and coconut milk.

Ingredients

  • Chocolate Frosting
  • 2 can of 400ml/12oz coconut milk, full fat
  • 500 grams of vegan semi-sweet chocolate

  • Chocolate Cake
  • 500 grams of all-purpose flour
  • 280 grams of regular sugar
  • 90 grams of unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 200 grams of canola oil
  • 45 grams of vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, see here how to make your own
  • 700 grams of boiling water

  • Raspberry Filling
  • 200 grams of frozen raspberries
  • About 125 grams of fresh raspberries

Instructions

1

For the chocolate frosting scoop out the solid part of the coconut milk. You will not need the liquid part, you can make coconut water with it. Roughly chop the chocolate and melt at low heat with the coconut milk. Immediately chill in the fridge once chocolate is fully melted.

2

For the chocolate cake heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together. Divide between three 20cm/8 inch cake pans and bake for about 20-25min. An inserted toothpick should come out clean. If you only have one cake pan, bake one after the next, chilling the dough in the fridge meanwhile. Let cool before releasing from cake pan.

3

For the raspberry filling heat the berries with the gelling sugar for about three minutes while stirring. Immediately transfer to the fridge once done.

4

To assemble the cake first whip up the cooled down chocolate frosting. It should become lighter in color. Fill about 6-7 tablespoons of the frosting into a piping bag. Pipe a circle of the cream around the edges of the bottom layer cake. Fill the middle with half of the raspberry cream. Repeat with the second layer of cake. Place the third layer on top and frost the cake fully with the remaining frosting. Chill in the fridge for at least 15min. Shortly before serving pipe roses on the cake, I used an M tip. Decorate with fresh raspberries.
