If your dreaming of a rich, dense, smooth and creamy chocolate raw vegan cake, this is the one to try. This is the type of cake you can only eat a few bites of at a time, because it is that rich, but yet it is still surprisingly healthy. It has a silky velvety chocolate filling that has the denseness of a cheesecake, but without the tang. Just pure chocolate heaven. If you like that sort of thing, this will be heaven on a plate for you.

As much of a chocolate lover as I am, I have to say it was actually a little too rich for me. Next time I will probably try to make it a little lighter and with slightly less chocolate in it. Well worth trying again though. The entire G Living staff love this one and have requested I make this one again as soon as possible.
