For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

For the Frosting:

  • 1 cup vegan butter, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. Prepare the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Create the Wet Mixture:
    • In a separate bowl, combine almond milk, vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Avoid overmixing.
  5. Add Boiling Water:
    • Gradually add the boiling water to the batter, stirring until smooth. The batter will be thin, but this ensures a moist cake.
  6. Bake to Perfection:
    • Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Prepare the Frosting:
    • While the cakes cool, prepare the frosting by beating together vegan butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, almond milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  8. Frost and Enjoy:
    • Once the cakes are completely cooled, frost the top of one cake layer, place the second layer on top, and frost the entire cake.
