Vegan Choco Orange Cake is a dairy free chocolate cake with orange flavouring . The cake is sinful and one to die for .
My Bhabhi is a pro with vegan bakes , and when she visited us a few months back , she got me two cakes . Whole wheat Lemon Spice Cake and Date & Almond Cake . Both the cakes disappeared very fast as we had quite a few guests . The cakes were so good that we asked her to bake more cakes . This time we wanted different flavours . She made the Vegan Vanilla with Nuts and this Choco Orange Cake. Well, using the same basic recipe she made a few more, but since we were so pressed with the Baby Shower , I was not able to click all. Those cakes were for some of the guests that arrived.
The Chocolate Orange is one of my favourite combos and I have worked with this flavour and all have enjoyed it too . So when she made this cake , I knew all would love it . The cake was vegan , though none of us are vegans , we all loved it . No one could spot any difference .
