Vegan Coconut Lemon Cake // Sunny’s Sweet Sunday

There’s a story behind my original vegan coconut lemon cake recipe.

Let me tell you…

For Christmas last year my best friend gave me a cake mix for a vegan coconut cake. The cake was so incredibly yummy, I made it when we had guests over and everybody loved it! Now a Babyshower being another occasion I had to bake a cake for, I thought why not make a vegan coconut cake, so I could eat it without problems and a coconut cake is not something everybody brings or has eaten already;-)

The problem was I didn’t remember the recipe and I couldn’t find it anywhere and my friend didn’t reply in time…and I was a little pressed on time anyway. So what do I do? Well I think.

What goes with coconut? Lemon!
What goes with that? Chocolate!
Alright, now combining all that would make a coconut lemon chocolate cake.
That’s too much.
But I get started on making a VEGAN coconut lemon cake and writing the ingedrients and measurments on a piece of paper as I go, adjusting at some point or another. It’s not so easy just leaving out the eggs…

Once I’d managed to form a dough without using eggs, I baked the thing and added a coat of chocolate on top and done was my original recipe!

The cake was almost gone after the party and I got compliments on it and questions for the recipe.

Well (*flips hair*) it’s an original I just invented today! (*grins broadly*)

It feels good to be able to just throw together a cake that people really like! 🙂

Next time you’re going to a party , don’t panic, just make this one! It’s a cake not many people have eaten before. It’s special;-) But now..

Let’s get baking, shall we?

While it’s baking either melt chocolate or make your own easy vegan one with this recipe! Take out the cake and let it cool down.

If you want, add the homemade chocolate on top and let cool again!
