Triple Chocolate Cake
I do not know about you but for me the combination of ripe, juicy berries and rich chocolate is simply irresistible!
This decadent and seriously tempting triple chocolate cake is raw, vegan, gluten and refined sugar free and does not contain any nastiness. Filled to the brim with goodness such as raw cacao, it tastes delicious and you can enjoy it totally guilt-free ;-).
