How do I get the peppermint flavor in the vegan chocolate cake?

Do you agree that chocolate and peppermint is one of the best combos ever? Then you will love this chocolate cake with the hint of peppermint. You do not need any unusual ingredients for it, it tastes heavenly refreshing by the mint taste. I like to use fresh herbs, also in the vegan peppermint chocolate cake I take fresh peppermint. Of course you can also take mint extract or aroma. Just take what you prefer. Do you like the taste of mint?

I do not like hazelnut, what can I use instead for the vegan mint chocolate cake?

I personally love the nougat taste of hazelnuts, they complement the super chocolaty taste. You can also easily replace the hazelnuts in the vegan peppermint chocolate cake with other nuts, such as Macadamia, pecan, walnuts or almonds. If you do not tolerate nuts, then you might be able to try it with seeds that you prefer. However, I have not tried it myself. Which nut would you prefer? Let me know in the comments, I’m looking forward to reading from you.

This delicious vegan mint chocolate cake is

  • super chocolatey
  • prepared quickly
  • super duper deliciously
