Meera Sodha’s recipe for vegan chocolate, date and coffee cake

Selfish in that a cake can be finely tuned to your exact preferences to create your perfect flavour, texture and appearance; and generous in that, by their very nature, all cakes are best when shared (unless your name is Bruce Bogtrotter). Today’s recipe happens to be my perfect slice. It’s packed full of my favourite sweet ingredients: dates, dark chocolate, coffee and cardamom, built on a base of bananas for density, and topped with ganache and flowers just for fun. Chocolate, date and coffee cake Pour the ganache over the cake while it’s on a wire rack for a clean look; or, for a more natural style, put it on a plate and let the ganache run down the sides.

Prep 35 minCook 1 hr 10 minServes 8-10 Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas 4. In a small bowl, soak the flax seeds in three tablespoons of water. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, salt, baking powder, cocoa powder and ground cardamom, then fold in the date mixture. BBC Food - Recipes - Chocolate olive oil mousse.
