The beloved oreo cookie steals the show in this amazing vegan chocolate cake! This oil-free cake is perfect for birthdays and special occasions!
Well hello there, everyone! I hope you all are doin’ well. I mentioned in the post for my Vegan Cranberry Flax Muffins that I would doing a recipe for my birthday cake and well.. here it is! This past Thursday marked my 26th birthday! I have officially lived for a quarter century. I would absolutely have to say that this last year has been one of the best! 25 will go down as a year of learning and growth within myself. Success! Cake is definitely in order.
For my past birthdays, my mom or S.O. would order a cake from a bakery and it would be all pretty and taste delicious, but tummy aches were definitely to be had. Last year they ordered me a vegan cake from a specialty bakery here in YYC, but it fell short of my expectations, to say the least.
What the fudge man. What the fudge.
So this year I decided to take my birthday cake into my own hands. I had initially planned to do a chocolate cake (OF COURSE) with a vegan bavarian cream filling. I’ve probably had that combo 5-6 times of my last 7 birthdays, in non-vegan form. Apparently, I’m a big fan of that combination! But last minute I decided to go with a chocolate-oreo cake instead. Not sure why I changed my mind, but what the hell, I’ll run with it. Oreos are my favourite variety of sh*tty grocery store shelf cookies, so I’m definitely okay with a little oreo indulgence!…
