Moist & delicious!

This is a recipe I found by a vegan/vegetarian blogger (I have searched long for her link to put in here with no success as I follow a lot of bloggers)
Her recipe included ingredients which I do not use as… sugar/rice syrup for me, oil/olive or sesame for me, coconut milk/soy or spelt for me, so I just translated it into my “language”.
I love easy recipes which do not include electrical appliances & ingredients all houses have so I do not need to go out running to find them & this one fitted my criteria.
I was taking time off the blog but this is the exception… I find it important to share a quick-cheap-&-easy recipe that could help others.

Ingredients
———–

1. 3 1/2 cups wholewheat flour
2. 1 1/2 cup pure cocoa (you can use carob powder instead but it’s not as strong a flavor or coffee if you want to change it to a coffee flavored cake)
3. 2 cups rice syrup (sugar for some)
4. 2 tsp. baking powder
5. 400 ml = 13.53 fl. ounces soy milk (spelt or coconut for some)
6. 1 cup oil (olive,sesame any of your choice)
7. 1/4 cup of rum
8. 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar (optional)
9. 2 tbsp. shredded coconut to sprinkle on top (optional)
10. A few pieces of unsweetened chocolate to put in the muffins (optional)

Method

1. Put the dry ingredients in a bowl, mix then add the liquid ingredients (I did not have apple cider vinegar so I did not use it)
2. You can be creative & make muffins out of it as I did, with pieces of chocolate tucked in the middle if you want it fancy, a flat or high cake with or without shredded coconut on top or anything else that tickles your imagination 🙂
It’s as simple as that!
3. Put in a preheated oven on 170 degrees Celsius = 338 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 mn (muffins)
& about 30 mn for the cake as it has more dough.

I’m including below photos of the cakes & of the unsweetened 100% natural chocolate if you want to make your own research to purchase it.

I use the yeast dough recipe that I posted for my chocolate roll which is totally delicious, it’s a sweet bread dough that has many possibilities , again… you can use the link for that recipe;

This recipe is not one of my easiest ( I had to let the dough rise. That’s all ;)) but it’s nourishing, a good 100% natural pizza (if that’s what you choose) for recess, parties, birthdays or work. All in all, I’d say it’s
a recipe worth doing every once in a while.
I use the bread machine on dough program, to mix it and let it rise. It’s quicker, but you can do it
the ” longer “Way the only difference with the machine is, that it requires dried yeast.

Enjoy the experience!

Method

Let it mix and rise (it takes about 1 1/2 hrs.) then roll out on baking paper.
Spread organic tomato puree on top with black pepper, oregano, pili-pili if you like it sharp,paprika powder & shredded cheese or tofu cheese. A bit of salt if the tomatoes are not salted. The spreadings are all optional. You can choose anything from organic veg. (mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, organic corn…) to cheese & slide the dough with the baking paper on oven tray.

Put in oven at 150 Degrees Celsius = 302 Degrees Fahrenheit, check after twenty minutes (I always prefer to be safe than sorry)
Let 10 more mn. if necessary.

Enjoy doing it, it’s really fun! Let me know your results!
