It’s been a while since I’ve posted a chocolate recipe and as I was playing in the kitchen this week and created this delicious light fluffy cake, I thought I’d share it with you! 🙂 This would be perfect for Valentines Day, either as dessert or just to say ‘I love you’! 🙂
I was aiming for an egg free, dairy free cake and decided to experiment with aquafaba again. I’ve made several things using aquafaba but not cake. For those of you puzzling over aquafaba (where have you been!) it is the liquid from a can of chickpeas (or other beans) which you’d normally drain away! Yes, this gloopy liquid actually whisks up to resemble egg whites and in a cake it is perfect! 🙂 I added apple cider vinegar to the whisked mixture, did a taste test and not a hint of chickpea flavour remained! 😀 What I had was a fluffy white neutral tasting mix. A perfect base for a delicious light cake!
I’m sharing this cake over at Fiesta Friday where once again I am co-hosting! 😀 You really should come over and join us (if you’ve not come from there already!) The regulars are a very friendly bunch who love to share their recipes and creations each week. The idea is that you write a new post, adding a link to Fiesta Friday, add two more links to the co-hosts for that week, then add your post link to the party. It is really easy to do! 🙂
After you’ve added your link, you have a look and see what everyone else has made, hop around, click like, write a comment and have a chat. IF… IF you follow the rules, i.e. add all the three links, are visible at the party – e.g. answering comments, visiting others, writing on the main post etc., then you get the chance to be featured! 😀 That means that at the following weeks blog party, your post is highlighted with a comment for all to see! 🙂 Winwin… more visitors, more backlinks, more exposure for you! Hooray!
This week I’m co-hosting (Laurena @ Life Diet Health) with the very talented Jhuls @ the not so creative cook If you’ve not been over to Jhuls’ blog, have a look, she makes the most delicious foods with great photos. 😀
So, check out this recipe, pin it, print it, share it or whatever you normally do 🙂 write a comment, then hop over to Fiesta Friday! See you there! 😀
