Vegan Chocolate Cake with Sweet Potato and Raspberries


  • 100g buckwheat flour
  • 100g rice flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp starch (like cornstarch)
  • 1 Tbsp psyllium husk
  • 1 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 cooked sweet potato
  • 200ml plant-based milk

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/340°F, then add all ingredients (expect the dark chocolate and raspberries) to a food processor and mix until you get a smooth consistency.
  2. Next, melt the chocolate in a “Bain Marie” (a hot water bath) and then fold it into the cake batter.
  3. Add the frozen raspberries and mix them into the batter as well.
  4. Pour the batter into a greased cake form (no need to grease it if you’re using a silicone cake form).

  6. Decorate the cake with your favorite toppings (like pomegranate seeds). Enjoy!
