Vegan Chili Dark Chocolate Cake with Sweet Potato Frosting
“Dessert” doesn’t have to come with scare quotes when it’s made with wholesome vegetables, and GC’s Vegan Chili Dark Chocolate Cake combines applesauce, red chili powder, coconut oil, and cashew milk to make a moist, vegan cake that’s full of added nutrients (hint: it also contains apple cider vinegar). Not to be outdone by the spongey dessert it compliments, our homemade Sweet Potato Frosting (a twist off of a more traditional version we found on Food52) also features chili powder, luscious chocolate, cinnamon, and cashew milk for a sweet and not-too-spicy treat.
