Vegan-friendly, no-cook chocolate cake – it exists!


This month is World Vegan Month and here at City we’re embracing the environmental benefits of animal-free food! Did you know that having just one meat free day a week can help cut greenhouse gases and alleviate some of the pressures on land and water use? EatC1ty have been serving up some tasty vegan treats to celebrate this month, but elsewhere we know how tricky it can be to find good vegan alternatives for the food you love!

In our recent Great City Bake Off, Natasha bagged 3rd prize with a delicious vegan chocolate cake which we thought was a great way to indulge vegan-style! She’s shared the recipe so you can have a go yourself.


Vegan Chocolate Cake

For the crust:

1 cup walnuts or oats

1 ½ cups dates


For the cake:

2 cups cashews

2 tablespoons cacao powder

1 cup water

Juice from 1 lemon

1 cup dates

¼ cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


To make the crust: pulse the walnuts or oats into a powder in a food processor. Add the dates and keep processing until it all sticks together. Press the mixture into the bottom of a cake tin. Put in the fridge.

To make the cake: blend all the ingredients until smooth and creamy. It should be the consistency of yoghurt. If it’s too watery, add more dates, coconut oil or nuts. If it’s too thick add more water or maple syrup. Pour the mixture onto the crust and let is set overnight (or for at least 12 hours).

Slice and enjoy – it’s that easy!
