For the vegan chocolate sponge

  • Pre-heat the oven to 160-180℃.
  • Grease and line 3 baking pans (6-inch round) with baking paper.
  • Mix the vinegar with the soy/almond milk and leave aside for the mixture to curdle.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add oil, sugar, vanilla, hot water, and curdled milk to the mixture.
  • Whisk to combine all the ingredients together. Distribute the batter evenly in the 3 tins
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake, comes out clean.

For the vegan dark chocolate ganache

  • Cut the chocolate into small pallet-sized pieces (if not using pallets).
  • In a pot, heat the cream until it comes to a boil.
  • Pour the hot cream over the melted chocolate, cover and leave aside for 5-10 minutes till the chocolate melts.
  • Once melted, give it a mix till it comes together as a silky-smooth ganache. Refrigerate to cool.

For the assembly

  • Assemble the cake once the sponges have cooled and the ganache has a spreadable consistency
  • Take a layer of the sponge and lather it generously with ganache, use a palate knife or the back of a spoon to spread it evenly.
  • Stack with another layer of sponge and ganache.
  • Add the last layer of the sponge
  • Dress up the cake with even more ganache (as you like it!).
