Valentine’s Day is a day of love, and what better way to express love than through food? Admittedly, I have a penchant for romantic clichés. Candlelight, red wine, and chocolate…what could be better!?

So, in honor of my favorite Valentine’s Day clichés, I created a recipe that is the perfect end to a romantic meal. Rich and luxurious, my Chocolate Red Wine Cake (served with a dollop of homemade Whipped Cream) will have your heart and your taste buds soaring!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

  • 1/4 cup Vegan Sour Cream
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Nutmeg

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (350 degrees F for high altitude), and spray an 8×8 baking pan with Non-Stick Cooking Spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together oil, sugar, agave, syrup, & stevia until smooth. Add egg, wine, vegan sour cream, vanilla, cloves, & nutmeg, and beat until smooth.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together, oat flour, rice flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, xanthum gum, salt, & cocoa powder.
  4. Slowly beat the dry mix into the liquid until just combined.
  5. If batter is too thick, add almond milk, 1 Tablespoon at a time. (I added 2 Tablespoon, but am cooking at a high altitude, requiring more liquid)
  6. Pour batter into prepared baking pan and smooth with a spatula.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool before serving.

 Enjoy!
