Vegan Mint Cookie Sheet Cake
Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
Lately we’ve been reviewing recipe categories to offer more diversity with options. Believe it or not, we didn’t have a lot of cake recipes. (cue the tears) Cake is one of those things I don’t like to do on a regular basis, but when I do, I like it to be seamless. Layer cakes can be more tedious and involve even more icing and are just not my style.
I personally.. LOVE a sheet cake! It’s quick, easy, no fuss and tastes just as good as the more time consuming layer cakes!
I recently featured a staple chocolate cake and loved the idea that it didn’t call for vegan eggs, butter, or even a lot of oil. In many ways, it’s a minimalist cake and the texture is just perfection! When thinking of the next fun chocolate cake, I loved the idea of a Mint Cookie Sheet Cake!!
What’s great about this recipe, is that it’s quick, easy, affordable, requires not even a vegan egg, vegan icing you can find ready made, the color is naturally dyed, the cookies provide texture, the flavor is good for any season, the cake is buttery soft, and you could double the recipe to make a tired cake if desired!
If you love effortless chocolate cake or all things mint and chocolate, you have to try this new vegan Mint Cookie Sheet Cake!!
Why this recipe is great:
