Chocolate fudge cake recipe is here just in time for the weekend. Feels like I have missed summer this year. The mornings are cool and the last heatstroke has passed. I see notes of Autumn around the corner with bursting orange pumpkins to be seen. Still I want to stay here a bit longer, but such is life right every season brings new treasures.

Chocolate fudge cake recipe is here just in time for the weekend. And how fitting and decadent this cake is indeed. My mother is here for a visit and its been so much fun having a helping hand and sharing my passion for plant based goodies with her. She is absolutely loving it! This cake has been the highlight of our week.

Feels like I have missed summer this year. The mornings are cool and the last heatwave has passed. Still I want to indulge a bit more in summer fruits so Ill be working up a storm to get them to you before the season is over. I see notes of Autumn around the corner with bursting orange pumpkins to be seen. I do love autumn, pumpkins and layers. Still, I want to stay here a bit longer, but such is life right every season brings new treasures.

After a very long break from blogging, I feel like I have a newfound respect for myself. I want to create and share when most convenient and when inspiration strikes. I have felt and placed unnecessary pressure on myself to create every single day. As a mom, in this stage of my life I have to prioritize you know. Blogging and creating should be fun right?

Anyhoo, so Ill be sharing less, but better content and quality. I want to create recipes that all plant based and non-plant based can enjoy. It should be a celebration of eating healthy and quality produce. And most of all creating and converting traditional recipes to vegan. This cake is just that, I loved chocolate fudge cake when I was small and this cake is such a close creation to the real thing.

Super silky frosting
