  •  One cup unsweetened almond milk
  •  One tablespoon apple juice vinegar
  •  Two cups all-purpose flour
  •  1 3/4 cups granulated sugar 
  •  3/4 cup cocoa powder 
  •  Two teaspoons baking powder
  •  1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 
  •  One teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 cup canola oil OR softened coconut oil 
  •  2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce 
  •  One tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  •  One cup of boiling water



  • One cup of cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups earth balance vegetarian butter, softened, baking sticks preferred
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • Two teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4-1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 





Step 1. Preheat broiler to 350 degrees F and oil two 9-inch cake pans. You can also line them with material rounds and lightly flour for the simple removal of the cakes later. 

Step 2. Measure 1 cup unsweetened almond milk and add the tablespoon of vinegar to it. Mix marginally and put aside to turn sour. 

Step 3. In a large bowl, including flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk well to combine.  

Step 4. Now add the oil, apple sauce, vanilla, and almond milk/vinegar blend. Blend on medium speed with a hand blender (or stand blender with the oar connection) until well combined. 

Step 5. Lower the speed and carefully pour in the boiling water, and blend into the cake batter until combined. The batter will appear to be runny now; that is how it should be.

Step 6. Divide the batter equally between your cake dish. Then, bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. After 10 minutes of cooling in the pan, carefully remove the pans' cakes and cool completely before frosting.




Step 1. Add the cocoa powder to a large bowl. Whisk well to remove any clumps. 

Step 2. Include the softened vegan butter and blend in with a hand blender until creamed and all-around combined. 

Step 3. Include half of the powdered sugar and half of the almond milk and mix until combined. Add the rest of the powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Blend starting on low, and go to high. Blend until cushy and combined. 

Step 4. If the frosting seems to dry, add more milk, a tablespoon or two all at once. If the frosting looks overly wet and doesn't hold it's shaped, have more powdered sugar until it thickens up. 

Step 5. Frost the cake using a frosting spatula or only a butter knife

  • For cupcakes, fill liners half full and prepare for 20-25 minutes. The whole recipe will yield around 24 cupcakes.
  • Double the recipe to make a four-layer cake or cut in half to make a one layer round cake. You can also make a bundt cake, prepare for 45 minutes. Or then a 9 x 13-inch cake, baking for around 35-40 minutes.
  • Don't like a lot of frosting? Cut the frosting ingredients in half. The recipe as written makes enough for thick layers of frosting. 
  • Are you allergic to nuts? You may substitute soy milk or other milk for the almond milk. Any non-dairy milk will work here.
  • No applesauce? Substitute 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flax + 5 tbs water), whipped aquafaba, or another egg replacer, for example, Bob's Red Mill (2 eggs worth).
