Vegan Chocolate Walnut Cake – Feliz Navidad

Jingles can be heard
Bells are ringing
Who is that
I can hear singing
Singing loud and in pain
Why in pain, can anyone explain
May be it’s the Lord, who is horrified
Looking from above the plight
Plight, the mankind is in
Can the trust of Lord
He can really win
Leave the hatred, leave the gun
Leave it all as Christmas has come
Let the carrols shower some love
Let goodness be all above
Above the insanity that we hide
Let there be a brighter side
Side of mankind, Lord is waiting to see
As he is wanting us to be 
Let’s fil laughter everywhere 
Let’s jus feel Christmas in air 
Let’s not be ignorant and numb 
Let’s tell Santa, better we have become 
By being a Santa for some
Let’s spread love as 
Christmas has come……….

 Nice Parul. It says a lot in few words. With so much happening around the world it conveys a beautiful message, has left me into deep thought for sure.

Friends Do you believe in Santa? Well we do and believe he always comes to bless us all with a shower of happiness and goodness. The point is at times some one is Santa for us and at times we can be a Santa for others. Right!!!

So Friends Christmas is in the air 🙂 Its beautiful time of the year where we should let go off the past and step with positive spirits and happiness into the future. As Delhi is getting colder and colder we are getting lazier. Lol. But our sweet tooth in this beautiful weather pushed us into the kitchen to cook something awesome. As one of our uncles is in town from US and he is vegan we stuck to our vegan cake recipe to be enjoyed by all. We know Christmas calls for plum cakes with lot of richness but friends this one is light and nice. Equally good holding the goodness of walnuts this chocolate vegan cake is one of our specialties.

Friends as you all must be knowing Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products. So our uncle is strictly vegan and loves happy cows, so this one is specially for him. But have to say without any milk or butter this turns out to be so nice and light. It is addictive and if you keep a plate along with some tea this winters it will be consumed by happy palates in no time. We assure that. So if you are planning to invite couple of people over bake two, else you will keep craving for more 😉

You all cant imagine our excitement when we perfect it each time and that too making it vegan so that each one our family members can enjoy it. Dont believe us? Bake it . You all can thank us later 😉 Here we go:

On that note foodie friends we request you all to be someone’s Santa this year.
