Every person has feelings of bliss sometimes. Not only sometimes, but very day. I’m pretty sure. May it be that you caught your bus and are in time although you left the house 7 minutes later than normally or that you accidentally find something you think you’ve lost long long time ago.

Or that the vegan cream you found in your pantry looks and almost tastes like “normal” whipped cream.

Makes one cake (26 cm diameter)

for the cake

  • 200 g all-purpose flour (1 1/3 cups)
  • 20 g cocoa powder (1/4 cup)
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate
  • 150 g sugar (3/4 cup)
  • 70 g vegetable oil (90 ml, 1/3 cup)
  • 180 ml non-dairy milk (3/4 cup)
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar

for the topping

  • 1 handful cherries
  • about 150 ml vegan whipped cream (such as *soyatoo!)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 20 g dark chocolate
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil

Preheat the oven to 180° C (360° F). For the batter, mix the dry ingredients and add the rest. Grease a spring form and fill the batter into the form. Bake for about 20 – 25 minutes until a skewer comes clean from the center of the cake. Flip on a plate and set aside.

Meanwhile halve and pit the cherries. Whip the cream with the sugar. Let the chocolate melt with the vegetable oil over a water bath. Spread the whipped cream on the cooled cake, decorate with the cherries and sprinkle with the melted chocolate.

Refrigerate before serving and eat within 2 days (the cherries may go off).
