Chocolate cake with gooey ganache

What can I say? This is a simple chocolate cake with a delicious ganache (mixture of non-dairy milk, melted vegan chocolate and some maple syrup from sweetness). I had never made a ganache before but it was very easy. It’s fun to pour the ganache over the cake, watch it slowly ooze out to the edges, then set. A cake to savour.

This recipe can be found in Isa Does it and is also online at Post Punk Kitchen (but with some of the vanilla replaced by almond essence).
