Vegan Violet, Lavender and Chocolate Cake

I don't do road trips, not that I don't want to but I get travel sickness.  

The closest to a road trip would be journeys to and fro Scotland to Wales; or to the other side of London, England when visiting family.  A journey that sometimes took over 8 hours depending on traffic  We always take with us bottled water, nibbles like crisps or a trail mix, but also a flask of black coffee, vegetable wraps or pasta salad and for sweet, because there is always room for something sweet: flapjacks.   
But for the prompt today I thought I would share a cake, you may find it hard to say no to this cake, its Violet and Chocolate Cake in the shape of a heart.  
And remember cakes are made for sharing.  Enjoy. 


  1. That cake looks amazing! I've had bars of chocolate before with lavender in but never a cake. Do you have a link to a recipe for it?

    1. Thank you. I will up-date the blog with the recipe, its an adaptation of my vegan Chocolate Beetroot cake.

    2. Brilliant thank you. I have been looking for a vegan chocolate beetroot cake recipe too so that is excellent news that you have one!

    3. Here is the link to the Beetroot Chocolate Cake, and I just adapted withe the lavender and violets, more violet syrup though.
