I’d tried a vegan jaffa cake recipe earlier in the week from trusted Google and it turned out lovely, but crumbly as hell. So when I read this recipe for chocolate cake and it didn’t have any binding ingredients, I freaked out slightly and caved by adding some.
The few alterations that I tried were:
Add 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed and 2 tablespoons of apple sauce to the wet ingredients, and substitute the plain flour for wholemeal flour.
And it was great, moist, together and really flavourful. I’d definitely recommend this recipe with the alterations.
