This cake has been waiting to be posted for a long time. I was at the doctor’s waiting to go through a glucose tolerance test (by far the worst test of my pregnancy, so disgusting to drink this water glucose cocktail!) and came across this recipe. It caught my attention immediately cause I love the combination of chocolate and orange. The cake is amazing. The sauce is not thick like a glaze but it is really yummy! Enjoy this vegan chocolate orange cake with your family and friends! Happiness is hidden in simple things, right?

Happy new week, dear friends!

Instructions:
In a bowl combine flour with oats, cocoa powder, vanilla and soda. In another bowl stir sunflower oil with orange juice and zest. Add sugar and beat well. Pour boiling water and mix well. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ones and stir to combine. Grease a bundt cake tin and empty batter in it. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean. Make the sauce. Melt chocolate in a double boiler and combine it with powdered sugar and juice until you get a nice sauce. It won’t look like a glaze, it wont be thick. No worries about that. It is really delicious poured over the cooled cake. When cake is ready, remove from the oven and allow to cool before unmoulding it. Top with some of the sauce and grated zest. Serve slices and pour them with extra sauce! Enjoy!
