Coffee and walnut cake

Your best cup buddy! The vegan experience is worth the try just to shake this up a little bit. Why waste the aquafava anyway when there are so many things you can do with it? More than that, there is no need to panic when you suddenly realised that you are out of eggs in the end. Flax seeds would also do I would think but my experience did not go that far. Hope you can enjoy too!
