How to Make It

1. Step
Preheat oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
2. Step
Add flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder to a large mixing bowl and whisk to thoroughly incorporate, making sure there are no lumps.
3. Step
Once, the dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed together, create a small well in the middle and add in the coconut oil, maple syrup, and almond milk. Continue to whisk until a thick and lumpy batter forms.
4. Step
Grease the inside of two 9-inch (23 cm) cake tins with coconut oil or nonstick baking spray, and add about 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder to dust the inside of the pan.
5. Step
Pour half of the batter into each of the cake tins.
6. Step
Bake them for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
7. Step
Once cakes are finished, transfer them or a cooking rack for 5-10 minutes before removing the finished cakes from their tins.
8. Step
While the cakes cool prepare the frosting. Add vegan butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl and whisk using an electric hand-mixer until a smooth and glossy frosting forms.
9. Step
Add almond milk and continue to mix until incorporated.
10. Step
Choose which of the cakes will be the bottom of your finished cake and carefully level it off.
11. Step
Place a small amount of the icing in the middle of your serving dish and place the cake on top.
12. Step
Using about a cup (about 115g) of the icing, generously coat the bottom layer of the cake using a spatula.
13. Step
Once the icing is spread out evenly, place the second cake on top and continue to frost the cake using the rest of the icing.
14. Step
Refrigerate the cake for 30 minutes before serving.
15. Step
Slice and serve.
16. Step
Enjoy!
