Chocolate Vegan Death Cake

Having a sweet tooth, I’ve tried plenty of desserts. This is one of my favorite ones and is very easy to make.

Cake ingredients

4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 cups sugar

1 cup cocoa powder

1 tablespoon baking soda

2 teaspoons salt

1-1/2 cups vegetable oil

2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract

3 cups strong brewed coffee

1/4 cup cider vinegar

Icing ingredients

1 (12-ounce) package firm silken tofu

3 cups vegan chocolate chips (many semisweet brands contain no dairy)

Cake preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 3 (9-inch) round cake pans, dust with flour, and line bottom with parchment or wax paper.

Sift together dry ingredients. Add oil and vanilla extract. With electric mixer on low speed, blend until fully combined. With mixer on medium speed, gradually blend in coffee. When mixture is smooth, add vinegar and blend on low speed just until combined. Divide batter evenly into prepared pans.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or just until a knife or toothpick inserted in the center of layers comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool 15 to 20 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from pans and allow layers to cool completely before icing.

Icing preparation

To prepare icing: Drain excess fluid from silken tofu, crush and place in a medium saucepan with chocolate chips. Stir together over medium heat until chocolate is very soft. Transfer to food processor and puree until fully blended. Cool to spreadable consistency and frost between layers, and top and sides of cake.

Yields 3 (9-inch) layers.
