Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk (we use koko unsweetened)
  • 1/3 cup vegan plain yoghurt (we use Alpro)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 290 grams brown sugar
  • 90 grams vegan dark chocolate
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 200 grams gluten free plain flour
  • 45 grams vegan dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 110 grams roughly chopped walnuts
  • 135 grams white vegan chocolate chips
  • 130 grams vegan marshmallows (Freedom Natural Mallows)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees c and grease and line a 8-9 inch square baking tin.
  • Heat together the milk, yoghurt, vanilla and sugar over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved – be careful not to burn!
  • Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from the heat and add the chocolate pieces and oil and stir. Allow to cool for 30 minutes.
  • Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  • Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, mix this into the dry mixture until all is combined.
  • Add the walnuts, chocolate chips and marshmallows saving some for the top and fold together gently.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared tin and sprinkle the reserved walnuts, chocolate chips and marshmallows over the top.
  • Bake for around 45 minutes, checking with a skewer to make sure it is cooked in the middle (don't confuse the melted chocolate with the cake mixture).
  • Best served warm with vegan ice cream.
