  • 2 batches Vegan Chocolate Frosting

  • 1 1/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • Wet Ingredients
  • 1 ¼ cups water

  • 1 cup non-dairy milk

  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar

  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  • Make the cake: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare two 9-inch round cake pans as follows: coat with softened coconut oil, then dust completely with cocoa powder. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients: oat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • Add water and milk to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 10-second increments until just warm. This will prevent the melted coconut oil from solidifying once mixed with these liquids.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients: water, milk, coconut oil, sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Whisk until just incorporated, making sure no flour patches remain.
  • Pour batter evenly into prepared cake pans. Tap the pans several times to even out the batter and release bubbles that have formed in the batter. Bake for 22-26 minutes. Mine took 24 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick—it should come out clean when done.
  • Place pans on a cooling rack to cool for 25 minutes. Afterward, use a plastic knife to cut around the interior edges of the cake pan to loosen the cake. Shake the pan a few times until you hear the cake pop loose. Place a large plate or cooling rack upside down, on top of one cake pan. Grasping both the pan and the plate tightly, flip the cake onto the plate/rack. Repeat with second layer. Allow cake to cool completely before frosting (about 1 hour).
  • Frost the cake: Whip the frosting as instructed. Frost the cake. Enjoy! Storing instructions below!
