Vegan chocolate treat

I'm not a food blogger nor an experienced baker.  However, a culmination of an online course in still life photography and a gradual shift over the past couple of years to a whole-foods, plant-based diet led to having fun today with a new recipe and then setting it up for some photo practice.

I recently got my hands on the vegan cookbook Oh She Glows from Canadian Angela Liddon. Her recipes are ones that even a novice in the kitchen like me can follow and succeed at! This Fudgy Mocha Pudding Cake is divine. This plant-based thing might just be all it's cracked up to be...

The Start to Finish still life photography course that I'm taking is by Kim Klassen, who packs the course full of tips, tricks and inspiration on setting up a photo shoot, getting some great shots and then editing the crap out of them. Some very cool stuff happening over there. I recommend you take a look at her site and pour over her dreamy images.

So, my homework assignment to photograph chocolate, brown paper and something pretty from the kitchen was rather...delectable. What better reason to bake (and eat) a chocolate treat? 

For more plant-based receipes go check out Oh She Glows and Minimalist Baker - I highly recommend them both.  

I'd also love to know of other plant-based food blogs you enjoy- please leave any recommendations in the comments - I appreciate it, as will others!
