Everybody loves chocolate cakes, but the moment somebody mentions it, we think not just of the intense taste of cocoa but also the indulgent richness of dairy products like butter, cream and condensed milk, which put it out of the reach of vegans. Here is a completely Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe, which is so rich in taste despite not using butter or milk. The right proportion of ingredients and the use of oil ensure a rich taste and consistency despite not using these dairy products. In fact, nobody can tell the difference so you can confidently make it even for birthdays and other occasions. With a bit of decoration using icings or frostings, this cake will be just as glamorous as any other!
