What is Vegan German Chocolate Pecan Cake Made Of?
This cake consists of all the traditional ingredients like flour, baking powder, milk, and some source of fat. To make it super chocolatey, I recommend using the best quality cacao powder you can get your hands on. To keep this cake vegan, we use coconut or almond milk and as a source of fat vegetable oil (or melted vegan butter). Instead of eggs, this recipe uses applesauce, which makes the cake lovely and moist.
The caramel sauce is made of coconut milk- it is lovely and creamy, and I guarantee you will come back for this one!
