  • 30oz full-fat coconut milk (880mL), 2 cans
  • 3 cups dairy-free chocolate chunk (510g)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (60g), melted
  • 2 cups powdered sugar (240g)


  • 3 cups whole wheat flour (390g)
  • 1½ cups dark cocoa powder (180g)
  • 1 cup sugar (200g)
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 cups almond milk (710mL)

  • 1½ cups maple syrup (505g)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Berry, of choice, for garnish


  1. Using a microwave-safe measuring cup or a small pot on the stove, heat the coconut milk until hot but not to boiling. This will be about 2 minutes in the microwave.
  2. Grab a large bowl and place the dairy-free chocolate in it. Pour the hot coconut milk over the chocolate allowing the milk to melt the chocolate.
  3. Mix well to combine the ingredients.
  4. As soon as the chocolate is melted, add the coconut oil and powdered sugar to the bowl. Using a hand mixer or whisk beat until smooth.
  5. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease 3 8-inch (20cm) round cake pans and set aside.
  7. Get a large bowl and add the whole wheat flour, dark cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Whisk the ingredients together until combined and set aside.
  8. Get another large bowl and add the almond milk, coconut oil, applesauce, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract. Whisk the combine the ingredients.
  9. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture in two batches. Fold the mixture together with a spatula until combined. It's okay if you have some clumps.
  10. Divide the batter evenly between the 3 pre-greased cake pans and bake for 35-45 minutes until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
  11. Allow the cakes to cool completely.
  12. Now it's time to remove the frosting from your refrigerator and mix it up until well-combined.
  13. Choose which cake will be the bottom layer and cover it evenly with frosting, this will take about 1 cup (115g) of frosting.
  14. Top the second layer and frost it evenly.
  15. Add the final layer of the cake and frost the top and sides generously with your frosting.
  16. You may top with berries of your choice for garnish.
