550 grams cauliflower florets
3 tablespoons rapeseed oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips

For the frosting:
60 grams creamy peanut butter

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF/ 180°C/ 160 Fan. Lightly spray an 8-inch square cake pan.

  4. Add the cauliflower, rapeseed oil, and vanilla to the food processor with the almond milk and vinegar mixture. Puree a couple minutes until smooth.
  5. Add the cauliflower puree to the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until a thick batter forms.
  6. Fold in three tablespoons of chocolate chips (leave one tablespoon for the topping).
  7. Bake for 30 minutes.
  8. While the cake is baking, make the frosting by mixing together the peanut butter, maple syrup, and almond milk.
  9. Once the cake has completely cooled, pop it out of the pan and onto a plate.
  10. Spread on the peanut butter frosting, sprinkle on the chocolate chips, and enjoy! Store uneaten cake in a covered container.
