5 Vegan Chocolate Treats & #FreeFromFridays

Happy Friday everyone! Sorry I’m a bit late with #FreeFromFridays. I completely forgot about it! For some reason, I had it in my head it was Thursday today! Anyhoo… I’ve been drooling over all the vegan chocolate treats I’ve seen in the past couple of weeks, so since I’m in a mood for chocolate, I’ll make it the focus of this week!

So, my favourite was…. drum roll….  A Chocolate Orange Cake!

5 Vegan Chocolate Treats & #FreeFromFridays - Chocolate Orange Cake by Rebecca at Glutarama

This gluten-free vegan chocolate orange cake by the lovely Rebecca at ‘Glutarama’ is quick and easy to make, with only seven steps to follow, the most important one being the last: “Stick the kettle on and enjoy with friends.” I do love Rebecca’s writing. It is just like the lady herself: quirky, warm and full of humour! Seriously, if you haven’t come across ‘Glutarama’ before, you have to visit the blog for delicious recipes and friendly banter.

      My pleasure Choclette 🙂 I tried nut butter that had tiger nut flour in today and thought of you. It was scrumptious!

    I love the way your little girl is so dwarfed by the kitchen yet looks so determined and not intimidated in the slightest! Cute!
    Thank you so much for including my ice cream in the round up….. but I have to admit, that chocolate cake looks divine! x
