  • 2 Cups All purpose flour, sifted (255g)
  • 2 Cups Granulated sugar
  • 2/3 Cup Cocoa powder, sifted (60g)
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened almond milk, at room temperature
  • 2 Large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup Avocado oil (canola or grapeseed would work too)
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Boiling water
  • Chocolate frosting, of choice (I linked one I like in the notes)


  • Heat your oven to 350 degrees and line the bottom of two 8-inch cake pans with parchment paper and rub the sides with oil.
  • In a large bowl, whisk all the ingredients up to the almond milk (not including the milk)
  • Add in the almond milk, eggs, oil and vanilla and whisk until combined.
  • Pour in the boiling water and whisk until well mixed.
  • Divide the batter between the two pans and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35-40 mins.
  • Let cool COMPLETELY.
  • Frost and DEVOUR!
