“They’ll Think It’s Homemade” Vegan Chocolate Cake
Do you ever get home late on a holiday, a primarily dessert-centered holiday, and realize it’s too late to bake anything? I guess these things happen on, say, a Thursday too… But anyway, last night I found a solution! Needing a Valentine’s Day dessert in a hurry, I pulled out an Amy’s Chocolate Cake I had picked up at the grocery store for dessert emergencies (hey, those happen a more than you’d think), made a simple powdered sugar and non-dairy milk glaze, and sliced up the strawberries I had in the fridge.
Have you ever tried Amy’s Chocolate Cake? It’s fantastic! At least we really like them. They’re everything a chocolate cake should be, and I have to admit I like the smaller size of it because there isn’t a giant cake left sitting around, needing to be eaten before it’s sweet, moist chocolate cake-y goodness goes dry and stale. It’s not a “pretty” cake straight out of the package, but with a little plating, it has flavor, texture, and aesthetics on it’s side!
Oh, and there was “real food” too. But who really cares about real food on Valentine’s Day? Let’s be honest; it’s not a day about love as much as it is a day about dessert! Okay, okay, maybe that’s not true for everyone. I made a quick and simple penne with broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, pepitas, garlic, and marinara. I love pastas loaded with veggies!
Well, I’m going to wrap this up since I really want to make a vegan cheesecake yet tonight. If you have an amazing vegan cheesecake recipe, please share the link below! I’m always on the hunt for the best of the best recipes!
