Vegan Tofu Chocolate Cake

Vegan Tofu Chocolate Cake: Sinfully rich but healthy, chocolate cake recipe with tofu & agave nectar, and chocolate coconut frosting.

Thanks to Tammy Bechtel for her carob cake recipe, which we adapted.

If you're more of a traditional cake person, try Vegan Chocolate Cake with sugar & almond milk - instead of agave & tofu.

Recipe Tips:

We recommend using Fair Trade chocolate if you can find it. Raw organic fair trade cacao powder has the absolute best dark chocolate flavor!

To make this vegan chocolate cake using carob instead of chocolate simply substitute carob chips and carob powder for the chocolate.
