Vegan Chocolate Bourbon Cake

“A party without cake is just a meeting.”- Julia Child.  I think this vegan chocolate bourbon cake really, well, takes the cake.  Vegan Chocolate Bourbon Cake

This is one effortless vegan chocolate cake.  It is definitely one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever made, vegan or otherwise.  I love bundt pans because they make decorating  incredibly simple.  In particular, I love this bundt pan.  As some of you may know, I avoid using Teflon or nonstick coated cookware in my kitchen.  Products with these coatings are linked to many dangerous side effects. Yuck!  So while this pan is a little on the pricey side, it is well worth it!  Vegan Chocolate Bourbon Cake IngredientsVegan Chocolate Bourbon Cake

 

My Vegan Ganache really takes things over the top. Creamy, delicious, and rich, you’ll have people doubting if it’s truly vegan.  Little will they know, it is also INCREDIBLY SIMPLE!  Sorry for shouting, I got a little too excited
