Ravneet Gill's Lazy Persons Chocolate Cake

First up is Rav’s famous LPC (lazy person’s cake) which she’s whipped up completely plant-based, and even more mouth-watering! Made with our great taste award-winning Oat Milk, which contains only three natural ingredients.

Wet mix

175ml oil

175g plant based yoghurt/coconut yoghurt

170ml water

100ml plenish oat milk

1 medium avocado/ 100g avocado

5g instant coffee

Pinch of salt

Dry mix

125g caster sugar

125g light brown sugar

80g cocoa powder

230g plain flour

10g bicarbonate of soda

5g baking powder

Ganache

300ml plenish oat milk

80g malt extract

300g dark chocolate, I used 72% original beans cru virunga

250g plant based ‘butter’, I used stork

Method

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees fan/180 degrees oven

Grease 2 x 8 inch cake tins and line with parchment paper on the bottom, cut 2 extra circles of parchment paper and leave these aside

Put all of the wet ingredients into a blender and blitz well

Put all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix with a whisk to combine

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well to combine

Divide the mixture between the 2 lined cake tins and put a circle of parchment paper on top of each cake mix

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until when a skewer is inserted it comes out clean

Leave to rest for 20 minutes before flipping out onto a wire rack to cool completely

 

Ganache & finishing Method

Warm the oat milk and malt extract together in a pan until steaming

Add the chocolate in and mix well

Blend with the plant based ‘butter’ and leave to sit for 1 hour

Take one of the cakes and put it on a plate with a large lip, spoon some ganache on one side and put the other cake on top

Pour ganache all over the top of the cake and put it in the fridge for 2 hours

Use a small step palette knife to shape the ganache up the sides of the cake

Put it on a clean plate and back in the fridge for another hour
