Vegan Chocolate Cake

I got the urge to bake but realized that there were no more eggs in fridge. So glad to chance upon this vegan cake recipe by Carol & attempted it. I am not a sweet tooth person & thus I reduce the amount of sugar greatly. The chocolates used were already sweet & since I am doing a chocolate sauce to go along with the cake, I supposed it is alright to reduce the sugar. Yes, the cake turn out well & the sweetness is just nice to my liking. In fact, I feel that the cake is sweet enough on its own even without the chocolate sauce! 

Vegan Chocolate Cake
(recipe adapted & modify slightly from Carol Hu)

80g Ghana dark chocolates
30g fine sugar
60g coconut oil
130g Blue Jacket Cake Flour

2 tsp baking powder
120g unsweetened soya milk

Chocolate sauce  
(recipe from here)

63ml water
25g sugar
40g light corn syrup
20g unsweetened cocoa powder 
14g bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
*In a medium saucepan, whisk together all ingredients (except chocolates). Once it starts to boil, remove from heat & stir in chopped chocolates till melted. Cling wrap & store in fridge for few hours before use.

1. Put chocolates in a bowl & microwave till melted. Add in sugar & coconut oil. Mix till combined.
2. Sift in flour, cocoa powder & baking powder & soya milk. Mix till combined.
3. Pour batter into a prepared 6" tin lined with baking paper.
4. Bake in a preheated oven @ 160C for 18mins.

This cake is very delicate & chocolaty. 
It will be nice to have with a cup of tea to go along with the cake =)
