Vegan Russian Chocolate Cheesecake

When I was a kid, I ate Russian Chocolate Cheesecake like crazy. Russian Cheesecake or Baumkuchen. I adored both kinds of cake so much! So sharing a piece was no option, and the reward after a math exam was already prepared the day before. So today, a piece of Russian Chocolate Cheesecake reminds me of my own childhood. And: it never disappointed me. The vegan version of it is super easy, you just have to wait until the cake cooled down after baking.
