Everybody loves cake! What better way to help perk up your kitchen on a wintery day than sharing the warmth and sugary smell of a classic cake baking in the oven. My grandma made a German Chocolate Cake that was simply out of this world. It had a rich, thick frosting laden with butter and the dark moist cake was made with eggs and milk. I adored it. So now, I have created a dairy- and egg-free vegan version that tastes much like the original to truly satisfy sweet cravings!
