VeganMofo Day 17: Today is my husband’s birthday and since he’s a big chocoholic I wanted to make a vegan chocolate cake for him. Tres Leche cake is one of my favorite cakes and I decided to make a chocolate version. I adapted the Tres Leche Cake recipe from “Viva Vegan” cookbook by Terry Hope Romero to include chocolate.
The original recipe uses coconut extract in the cake, I used orange extract instead as I like those flavors together. Also the original recipe had a coconut cream frosting, but I made a simple vegan cream cheese frosting.
