This beauty here is my favourite vegan cake, this time tweaked for Valentine's day by adding some strawberries and making it in a heart shape.

It's fudgy, it's rich in chocolate flavour, it's vegan. If that doesn't sound convincing enough, this cake requires absolutely no weird ingredients (only 5 main ingredients, in fact), and it only takes a few minutes to whip up. Honestly!

I've made this cake countless times, usually when I have a really sweet tooth but not many ingredients at home. I dare say it's actually quite difficult to mess up, so chances are you're only minutes away from a delicious cake in your own kitchen!
