    Ingredients
    • 400g of flour
    • 75g of cacao powder
    • 600ml of plant-based milk(I used soy milk)
    • 3tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
    • 100g of sugar(I used raw cane sugar)
    • 150g of almonds
    • 10g of baking powder
    • 1tablespoon of baking soda(important – tablespoon must be leveled)
    • tiny pinch of salt
    Instructions
    1. heat the oven to 180°C/355°F;
    2. if your chosen almonds are not already toasted, place them in a clean frying pan and toast for some minutes by mixing occasionally. Once the almonds have slightly changed color, take them off the flame/heat and set aside;
    3. make the vegan buttermilk – in a big measuring cup or other container pour plant-based milk and apple cider vinegar. Stir a few times, then set aside to curdle;
    4. in a bowl sift together flour, cacao powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add sugar and mix the dry ingredients together;
    5. when you see that the buttermilk has thickened a bit and curdled, add it to the dry ingredients and mix everything well together until you get a thick dough without lumps;
    6. chop the toasted almonds in tiny pieces (or, to save time, use food processor for this step), add them in the bowl and mix in the dough;
    7. line a cake form with parchment paper and, if necessary, grease the sides of it with oil to make it easier to take the cake out from the form once it’s ready;
    8. pour the prepared dough in the cake form and put it in a preheated oven for 40 minutes;
    9. to check, if the cake is ready, insert a wooden stick in different places of the cake – if it comes out clean, the cake is ready, so take it out from the oven and let it cool down still in the cake form. But if the wooden stick doesn’t come out dry and clean, bake the cake for some extra minutes.
