Chocolate, almond and caramel tartlets (vegan)

Black sesame chocolate cake (vegan)

I have made countless variations of this chocolate sponge cake, so last weekend I decided to change it a bit by using some toasted black sesame in the dough. I did not expect the result, meaning that it was super addictive and quite “light”, as the cake is truly not sugary at all and its […]
