Holiday season is upon us.

How to make a Chocolate Cake without eggs?

For the cake layers:

  1. Grease two 6-inch round cake pans, cover the bottoms with parchment paper and grease the paper.

    Preheat oven to 350F.

    In a bowl, combine flour, salt, cocoa powder, baking soda and sugar. Whisk.

    Add oil, vinegar, coffee and vanilla.

    Beat with an electric mixer or a whisk, until just combined.

    Divide mixture between both bans.

    Bake for 45-50 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Check your cakes at the 40 minute mark, but this cake does take a while to bake.

    Let cakes cook inside the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. You can wrap and refrigerate them for up to 5 days.

    Cut off the domes of the cakes.

For the coconut whipped cream:

  1. Beat coconut cream, for 8 minutes on medium-high speed, until stiff peaks.

    Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Beat for 1-2 more minutes.

For the chocolate ganache:

  1. Heat coconut milk until it just starts to boil. Remove from heat.

    Place chocolate in a bowl and pour coconut milk over it. Let it stand for 1-2 minutes.

    Stir until smooth. Add coconut oil and stir to combine. Let it cool to room temperature.

To assemble:

  1. Place the first cake layer on a platter.

    Spread generous amount of coconut cream on top. Add fresh chopped strawberries.

    Top with the second cake layer.

    Spread coconut cream on the top and sides of the cake. Scrape with a spatula, to achieve the “naked ” look.

    Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

    Remove from the fridge. Pour chocolate ganache on top of the cake and using a spatula, smooth it towards the edges, so the ganache starts dripping.

    Top with fresh strawberries for decoration. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, so the ganache can set. Slice and serve.

Allergy Friendly Chocolate Cake:

Looking for an allergy friendly chocolate cake, that is made with relatively simple ingredients (no avocado or beans in it)? I have you covered!

Relatively easy to make.

Great for a holiday party.

This cake will be perfect for a birthday!

How to decorate this No Eggs  Chocolate Cake? Naked Cake Trend.

I went for a naked cake look, which only had 2 thick layers.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you may have noticed that I like European style cakes, that have thin layers.

This does not work with this cake batter, because the lack of eggs, produces a very crumby cake, which is difficult to slice into thin layers.

The frosting on the outside of the cake is just coconut cream (no buttercream!).

It is important that you refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour, before you add the ganache, so the war ganache sticks to the cold cream.

Yes it is possible to avoid the use of buttercream on the outside of the cake, trust me!

And as I mentioned this cake is vegan.

But I owe you an explanation – the French macaron on top, obviously is not vegan!

I had some macarons and thought it will make a great decoration. Definitely skip it and decorate the cake with fresh strawberries.

Can you make a moist chocolate cake without any eggs?

Yes, absolutely! This cake is perfectly moist and crumby, and it is made without eggs. The moisture here comes from the vegetable oil.

Can you make cake without milk?

This no milk chocolate cake recipe is the perfect example. The combination of vegetable oil and hot coffee work well and you don’t really need any milk.
