Today was Day #6 of Chocolate Baked Goods Theme Week.

This Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Nut and Soy Free, Vegan, Salted Dark Chocolate Cake Mix from Notable Bites (Mountain View, CA) came packaged in its own foil cooking pan, which was very convenient. All I needed to add was two Tablespoons of oil and 1/3 cup of non-dairy "milk" (in keeping with this being a vegan mix), and it was ready to bake.

I used 1 tablespoon of organic olive oil and 1 tablespoon of enFuso smoke-infused olive oil to give it a hint of savory flavor that I think pairs well with chocolate and salt.

After removing the cake from the oven, I sprinkled it with the tiny packet of Himalayan Pink Salt Crystal mix (included), and I enjoyed a piece of Salted Dark Chocolate Cake.

The stilll-warm cake was relatively sweet and moist. It was a bit crumbly, but I'd prefer this over a cake loaded with vegetable gums or thickeners (this cake mix contained neither). And I loved the smaller cake size, and quick time from mix to cake.
