Don’t worry it’s easy! This delicious healthy recipe is easy to make and i walks you through the steps and all the ingredients on how to make it!



  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • A pinch of pink salt
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 3/4 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar (I used ¼ cup)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 cup vegan whipped cream
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1 cup fresh cherries, halved
  • 4 tbsp kirsch, optional



  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Prep two round cake rings. Grease them with oil and line the pans.
  3. Whisk your plant-based milk with vinegar to make homemade buttermilk. Set aside to let it thicken before use.
  4. Sift and mix dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Use a separate bowl to make a wet batter with oil, vanilla extract and buttermilk.
  6. Combine both batters and whisk until it turns into a smooth, silky batter. Avoid over mixing by only stirring the mixture 10-12 times.
  7. Divide the mixture between two tins.
  8. Bake for 15-20 mins.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  10. While the cakes are cooling, make the filling.


  1. Whip the cream till quite stiff, mix in the icing sugar .
  2. Place the first cake, faced down, on a cake stand. Spread the whipped cream evenly over the cake, then spoon over the cherry.
  3. Stack the second cake, faced down, on top of the filling.
  4. Spread the whipped cream over the top.
  5.  Arrange the fresh cherries on top of the cream, and sprinkle it with chocolate shavings


P.S: I didn’t use the kirsh (fruit brandy) in my recipe. Feel free to add a few drops in yours to get the traditional taste.
