How to make dairy-free chocolate cake

Preheat oven to 350 and spray 2 round 8-in x 2-in cake pans.

In a large bowl mix together all dry ingredients.

To make dairy-free buttermilk pour can of unsweetened coconut milk into a bowl, add 4 tsp apple cider vinegar, stir & let sit for 10 minutes.

In another bowl mix together the wet ingredients.

With mixer on slow speed add wet ingredients, except coffee, to dry. W/ mixer still on low add coffee & stir until just combined.

Pour cake batter into greased cake pans & bake for 30-45 mins or until toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean.

My assistant & her faithful teddy bear singing "Do you see what I see in the oven, Do you smell what I smell in the oven..." So much fun baking w/ a 4 yr-old!!

When cakes are done put on a cooling rack & set timer for 10 mins. After timer goes off flip cakes onto two plates to finish cooling. I flipped one onto my cake stand & the other onto a plate.

For icing melt both the chocolate bar & chocolate chips in a double boiler. Make sure to stir constantly so the chocolate does not burn!!

I originally started w/ just the chocolate bar but figured out it wouldn't be enough. So I added some mini chocolate chips that I had.

Add coconut oil & vanilla & stir well.

Put chocolate mix in fridge for 15-30 minutes. Don't let it sit in too long or else it will harden. I made that mistake & had to heat it up a little just to whip it.

Sorry for the blurry pic. With an electric mixer on low whip the chocolate

This cake takes a long time to cool & I got over excited about icing it so please make sure it is completely cool before icing! Once cool ice cake! Amazing w/ a cold glass of vanilla almond milk
