Vegan Avocado Chocolate Cake with Vegan Chocolate Ganache

When i picked Cakes with different egg substitutes as theme for this week's blogging marathon, i know i'll be making a chocolate cake with avocado. Yes avocados works wonder in eggless cakes and you can add the avocado puree to replace butter in cakes. I have already tried couple of bakes with avocados however everytime i love to work with avocado puree in chocolate cakes. One of my recent trial with avocado is this vegan chocolate cake. Since avocado puree is used in this recipe, i used oil instead of butter. Also i used white vinegar and baking soda as egg substitutes in the cake as my theme of this week's blogging marathon.This vegan chocolate cake came out super moist and dense as well. The fat in this cake is just vegetable oil and avocado puree.None will notice the addition of avocado here until you reveal the secret ingredient.

Its peak season of avocado here, obviously i pulled myself to give a try to this beautiful vegan chocolate cake with avocado as this cake was in to do my list since a while. Give a try to this vegan version of chocolate cake,am sure you wont regret for it. Whenever i try something different from the routine cakes, i'll try to add chocolates to mask it, here also i did the same and i topped this vegan chocolate cake with a simple chocolate ganache just by heating the chocolate chunks and soyamilk in microwave oven. You can skip the ganache here but however ganache gives an excellent rich look to this vegan cake. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#43.
