Vegan Divas Chocolate Cake from Garden Of Eden

The popularity of vegan desserts and pastry continues to grow as more people begin to focus on the health of the foods they eat. And yet there is still so much resistance to vegan desserts.  Why is that?

There’s actually no reason why a vegan dark chocolate cake can’t taste as good as it’s egg and dairy containing cousin! Here’s the thing– in pastry, fat is king.  It’s one of the most important elements of a successful dessert.  Fat is what delivers the flavor to your tongue and taste buds.  Why do peanut butter, ice cream and croissants taste so damn good? The fat!.

A great alternative to deep-fried cake-style donuts

So, as long as a pastry chef can replace the fat from butter, cream etc. with a healthier non-animal fat, they can create a great tasting dessert.  Easier said than done of course–but when it’s done well, as it is with Vegan Divas or Peace Foods Cafe, you are in for a (healthy) treat.

The Vegan Divas dark chocolate cake is successful because it gives you the same satisfaction as eating a rich, non-vegan cake. Not only that,  but for some reason it doesn’t leave you feeling as full.  I found the dark chocolate cake very rich and chocolaty and the frosting smooth and creamy.  Try one and let me know what you think.

These chocolate cake slices are now available at Garden of Eden markets and Butterfield Market.  See below for more info.

I just enjoy to eat chocolates specially the dark chocolates because they taste delectable. Chocolates can also benefit your overall overall health..';`:

Now here is a medical experiment you would love to volunteer for. Engler’s team divided 21 healthy adults into two groups. One group got a Dove Dark Chocolate bar every day for two weeks. Like other dark chocolate bars with high-cocoa content, this one is loaded with something called epicatechin. Epicatechin is a particularly active member of a group of compounds called plant flavoniods. Flavoniods keep cholesterol from gathering in blood vessels, reduce the risk of blood clots, and slow down the immune responses that lead to clogged arteries…
