There is chocolate, and there is chocolate. Then there is sticky cake and Swedish sticky cake - "kladdkaka". This is a sticky cake but not a Swedish sticky cake. This is softer on the inside and outside. It's more of a cake then it's stickiness, but still this is sticky? I don't think any of my descriptions might make any sense to you all, but one thing is for sure and that is that it's absolutely fantastic. It's also sugar free and vegan. You better try it.
What's the substitute for egg?
One of the most difficult ingredients to replace with something else when baking, is egg. When you whisk eggs and sugar, you get it porous and airy, but eggs can also be used to be binding ingredients together in baking. Since I don't want this cake to be all fluffy, I don't use my egg substitute for that purpose in my recipe. The vegan eggs I use today are so-called "flax eggs" made from flax seeds. If you do not have flax seeds at home, you can use crushed psyllium husk or chia seeds.
What you simply do to get an egg is to mix 1 tablespoon of seeds with 2,5 tablespoons of water in a small bowl. For two eggs you double the amount. Mix this and then leave for a few minutes. A jelly-like mass will be created of the ingredients that will help bind the ingredients together in vegan baking, in the same way eggs usually do.
Sticky Double Chocolate Cake
100 g vegan butter
1 dl stevia, sukrin or other sweetening
2 dl wheat flour
1,5 tsp baking powder
a pinch of real vanilla
3 tbsp cacao
a pinch of salt
2 vegan "eggs"*
3 tbsp oat milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Heat oven to 175 degrees C.
Grease and bread a rectangular baking pan or line one with parchment paper.
Prepare your vegan eggs (read the middle part of this post to read about how to make vegan eggs).*
Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Remove the pan from heat.
Stir together your flour, cacao, baking powder, salt and vanilla in a bowl.
Pour the butter mixture into a bigger bowl and add the stevia/sweetening. Combine. Sift down the flour mixture a little by a time. Stir together with a spatula.
Add your vegan eggs. Mix. And then add your oat milk combined with the vinegar, and mix again.
Pour the batter into your greased pan and place in the oven for approx 10-15’ or until you insert a toothpick and it gets out kinda clean but still soft and sticky.
Let it cool and then garnished with a spread of melted dark chocolate (or ripple chocolate) and a sea salt. It's so good.
