This delicious vegan chocolate raspberry cake is the perfect dessert recipe to prepare for a special occasion like a birthday or an anniversary celebration or for the festivities.

It’s prepared with a batter of cacao, ground oat, and soy yogurt. Then it’s filled with a sugar-free raspberry jam and garnished with chopped berries and chocolate nibs. Absolute mouth-watering softness!

Oat makes the cake moist and adds flavour and lots of fibres. Just keep in mind that because of the lack of gluten, the dough is denser. We use additional baking powder to make up for this.

What we think makes our raspberry chocolate cake special is the healthy ingredients we selected. In fact, our contains much less sugars and fats than most desserts and it’s packed with fibres, proteins, and vitamin C.

Moreover, it’s gluten-free, egg-free, and dairy-free, so it is suitable for vegans, vegetarians, celiacs, and those with related food intolerance conditions. A few more tips regarding food intolerance: If you can't eat soy, replace it with coconut yogurt; if instead, you are allergic to nuts, just replace the almond milk with oat or rice milk.

  • You can use frozen raspberries if you can't find fresh ones.

  • Be careful when lifting the top half of the cake to spread the filling as gluten-free and egg-free cakes are usually crumblier than regular cakes.

  • For a nutritious boost and a floral taste (and if you're not vegan), sprinkle bee pollen over the cake when garnishing.
