It is very exciting for me that I can make a cake as delicious as this one and that it can be free from dairy, gluten and refined sugar. It is easy to craft and tastes absolutely divine. And now, thanks to a massive boom in the raw vegan lifestyle, you can get all these ingredients from your local supermarket.
