The Best Vegan Chocolate Cake- A quick and easy recipe, made in 1 bowl! This really is the best chocolate cake ever, vegan or otherwise. It’s super moist, rich, and full of chocolate.

My birthday was a few weeks ago, so what did I do? I asked my mom to watch all 3 kids for a few hours so I could create and photograph the BEST EVER Vegan Chocolate Cake. Pretty great birthday if you ask me!

For some reason, every time I get a vegan piece of cake out (such as at Whole Foods or elsewhere), I am disappointed. The frosting is usually yummy, but the cake part is either 1. strange tasting OR 2. super dry, not moist at all. Seriously disappointing.

I’ve also made a few of the vegan chocolate cake recipes out there, but even those weren’t quite moist enough or perfect enough for my taste.

So I did a little thinking and experimenting and I finally came up with the best, most perfectly moist and delicious vegan chocolate cake recipe!

By Loving It Vegan

From The Author:

Vegan cheesecake with a salted caramel fudge sauce topping! This ultra-creamy cheesecake is so much like the ‘real thing’ you will hardly believe it.

Topped with a salted caramel fudge sauce and some sprinkled sea salt it is the perfect contrast of salty and sweet with creamy and smooth!

This vegan cheesecake is definitely not my first go at making vegan cheesecakes!

From the first time I made a vegan cheesecake (in around 2009) I fell totally in love because honestly, it’s better than the ‘real thing’.

The only caveat? It’s a little pricey. Especially when I made the topping out of coconut butter and maple syrup!

So it’s probably not what you’re going to make every other week but it’s rich as heck so that’s another reason you’re probably not going to make it every other week.

Moist and creamy vegan coconut cake with a coconutty sweet potato frosting which reminds of Raffaello!

The recipe is dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, oil-free, refined sugar-free, nut-free, and furthermore easy to make.

This vegan dessert is the perfect cake for all coconut lovers out there and also a great birthday cake.


Today is not only Mother’s Day but it’s also my mom’s birthday and therefore I baked a cake!

Since my mom doesn’t like chocolate (yes, I know… I don’t understand it either, haha) I made a vegan coconut cake because she loves coconut as much as I do.

Unfortunately, my mom doesn’t live close (actually over 7500 km away), so this cake is rather symbolic.

I know she will still appreciate this little gesture and I am sure she knows how much I love her!


This coconut cream cake is, of course, plant-based, and also gluten-free. I used a combination of rice flour and oat flour, however, I am pretty sure that you could also use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend.

And if you aren’t gluten-free, you can try using all-purpose flour or spelt flour. Please note, that I haven’t made this cake with any other flour combination, so I cannot guarantee that the result will be the same!

Vegan Cookie Dough Cheesecake

By Veggie Jeva

From The Author:

Vegan Cookie Dough Cheesecake has a tangy-sweet cheesecake filling made from cashews, dotted with chocolate chip cookie dough bites and a walnut & cookie dough-based crust. 

This vegan no-bake cookie dough cheesecake is the perfect vegan dessert. 

You all know me by now, I love cookie dough! I love it so much that I try to incorporate it into everything.

Can a vegan dessert be life-changing? Yup, this Vegan Cookie Dough Cheesecake is life-will-never-be-the-same-again quality.

I mean, could you ever imagine that a dessert could contain the words cookie dough and cheesecake in it without any dairy or refined sugar or even gluten?

Well, it’s true, such a thing does exist, and it can all be yours with just a little effort.

Lots of cookie dough flavor, lots of cookie dough chunks, lots to love; may you find the biggest chunk. 

Oh! This is also a no-bake recipe, a dessert you can actually make in the summer without sweating your life away. Always a plus!
