I kinda want to keep things short and sweet today again cos, you know: exams (and a million assigments um can I live?)… but on the other side I also really really want to spend the next seven hours talking about all things cake.

Like, have you guys seen this?? Moist (I know you hate that word I mean: we all do. But is there any other better way to describe luscious chocolate cake? I DON’T THINK SO), fluffy chocolate cake filled with cheesecake cream and dulce de leche and then topped with chocolate dulce de leche bark and chocolate dipped strawberries.

  • 450 grams brown sugar
  • 170 grams coconut oil
  • 400 grams almond milk
  • 1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • -
  • 200 grams coconut cream
  • 300 grams vegan cream cheese
  • 150 grams powdered sugar
  • -
  • I used this recipe by Soy Division
  • -
  • 200 grams dark chocolate
  • 100 grams dairy free white chocolate
  • 1-2 spoonfuls of dulce de leche


  2. Preheat oven to 180ºC (375F)
  3. Whisk together both flours, baking powder, cacao and sugar until combined.
  4. Add in the melted coconut oil, milk, vanilla and vinegar and stir until combined.
  5. Grease two small-to-medium round pans and fill them 3/4 with the batter.
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes (this depends on your oven) or until you insert a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean).
  7. Leave cakes to cool completely before cutting.

  10. Whisk together cream cheese, coconut cream and sugar until smooth.
  11. Set aside to chill.
  12. -
  14. Please follow these instructions
  15. -
  17. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  18. Melt both chocolates and warm the dulce de leche so it's easier to drizzle.
  19. Pour melted dark chocolate on top of the parchment paper and spread with a spoon until the chocolate layer is rather thin (mine was not, but it's best if it's thinner).
  20. Drizzle with melted white chocolate and dulce de leche.
  21. Chill for at least 8 hours.
  22. -
  24. With a professional cake saw (you can use a knife, but they're tricky with vegan cakes), cut each cake into two halves.
  25. Top the first half with dulce de leche.
  26. Put another layer on top and spread a layer of the cream
  27. Top with another cake round.
  28. Spread some more dulce de leche on top.
  29. Top with the last layer and cover it with more cream.
  30. Break the bark into pieces, dip some strawberries into chocolate (and let them cool for 1-2 hours) and top the cake with them.
  31. Enjoy!


Cream cheese is Tofutti brand and white chocolate is Sweet Williams. If you can't get this kind of substitutes where you live, I recommend checking out iHerb


Hope you guys have a lovely weekend! Almost Friday!

    It’s been SUCH a long time since I’ve gotten the chance to clean out my e-mail from all the unread blog posts, and I could NOT resist peeking at this cake recipe!! I’m SO glad I did, but at the same time, I’m also SO NOT glad because I’m getting incredibly hungry. XD I can probably write a whole novel about how amazing cake is!

    Just the top of the cake makes my trouser button pop! I love how indulgent it looks! I can never say no to dulce De leche.

    Just stopping by to drop off my “oh. my. god” (and I’d also like to claim my bonus points for saying this in janis’ voice)

    So beautiful, lady!

    Looks very nice indeed…but I think your recipe plugin is malfunctioning, I’ve checked one other recipe and it looks OK, so not sure if it’s just on this one …? All I’m seeing is [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:11], and I’ve tried in all 3 main browsers (and I use up-to-date versions)… Shame, I’d love to try the recipe.

      Hello Gisela! Thanks for letting me know – I’ve been going though some blog trouble lately and there are a few things to fix yet, but I’ve just notified my web developer and it will be fixed soon. Thanks for your patience!
