Let them eat vegan chocolate cake! This is a rich, decadent-tasting, and gorgeous cake. This scrumptious confection, topped with a luscious, dairy-free chocolate ganache frosting, is ideal to serve as an enticing dessert at any gathering throughout the year. Oh yes, I have served this cake to my guests on many occasions, and no one can believe it is vegan. It’s just that good.
