The Best Chocolate Layer Cake that just so happens to be made with whole grains and dairy-free friendly. Made healthier* using less sugar and oil compared to a traditional chocolate cake recipe, but no one will know the difference!
*Use coconut or date sugar for an unrefined granulated sugar option.
*You can also make powdered sugar with coconut sugar by combining 1 cup coconut sugar with 1 TBSP arrowroot and processing in a blender until super fine.
If looking for a plain dairy-free chocolate frosting, double this recipe – only use as much milk is needed for desired consistency.
Cake can likely be made in a 9×13 pan though I haven’t tried this yet myself. Bake at 350ºF and watch baking time after 25 minutes. Checking every few minutes until inserted toothpick into the center of cake comes out clean.
