  • FROSTING
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1½ packages of enjoy life vegan chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Place flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl and stir well to combine
  3. Add coffee, oil, vanilla, and ACV to the bowl and stir well to combine
  4. Add to greased 9" cake round or two smaller 6" pans
  5. Bake for 30 minutes
  6. To make the frosting, in a heavy bottomed pan on low heat, melt the can of coconut milk with the 1½ packages of vegan chips together. Once all melted and combined, allow to cool completely before frosting the cake.
  7. After the cake has cooled completely, I cut the cake in half and put the frosting in the middle, and then frosted the outside. I store in the refrigerator before serving. Enjoy!
