Method to make vegan chocolate cake recipe

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients together, then whisk in wet ingredients to make a smooth batter. Pop batter into two round cake tins and bake for about 30 minutes until the top is springy and the knife comes out clean.

Let cool completely. Make the frosting by melting the chocolate chips in the microwave and add the coconut cream. Chill in fridge then whip until creamy.
