  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour

  • 1.5 cups unsweetened almond or soy milk

  • 2 tsp white or apple cider vinegar

  • 2/3 cup coconut oil, melted 

  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 1 cup cane sugar or jaggery

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven to 180 degree C and lightly spray 2 8-inch round cake pans. Dust with cocoa powder, shake out the excess and set aside.
  • Mix the almond milk and vinegar in a large mixing bowl, and let set for a few minutes to activate.
  • Add the oil, vanilla extract, and applesauce and beat until foamy. 
  • Add the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to a sifter and slowly sift over the wet ingredients while beating it
  • Beat until no large lumps remain. It should be creamy and pourable. Taste and adjust sweetness as needed.
  • Pour the batter in cake pan. Bake 25-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely.
  • For frosting, I mixed strawberry pulp with some vegan butter.
  • If you like frosting, you can also make versions by adding fresh strawberries or nuts or melted dark chocolate layer or chocolate chips on top.
