the cake is such a delicious mixture of the right amount of sweetness and heartiness.

Easy Vegan and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cake is dense but fluffy at the same time, and that’s my favorite.

if i am going to have cake, i want it to be made with better ingredients of course but definitely still feel indulgent.

that’s exactly what you get with Easy Vegan and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cake, indulgence but a healthier ingredient list.

the frosting is totally optional BUT what is cake without frosting? you can make your own or use store bought!

i went with simple mills vanilla frosting but use whatever you would like. chocolate frosting would be delicious too!

there are so many chocolate chips in the recipe as you can likely tell, lol!

  1. Hi
    This looks so delicious 😋
    Can I replace the applesauce with anything else? Would equal quantity mashed banana work or equal quantity coconut oil?
    Which gluten free all purpose flour do you usually use?
