Dairy Free Chocolate Cake

Happy Wednesday and National Chocolate Cake Day! I found this recipe on Taste of Kosher and made some tweaks but oh my gosh, is it good. I brought the cake to work and it was a hit! Check out the recipe below!

Dairy Free Chocolate Cake


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • ½ cup sugar substitute (I used Swerve)
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cup black coffee, freshly brewed (cool to room temp)
  • ½ cup oil (I did a mix of canola and coconut because that’s all I had)
  • 2 large eggs (room temp)
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a smaller bowl, add in coffee, oil, eggs, and vanilla and whisk together.
  • Add wet mix to dry mix and combine until smooth. This will be a very runny and thin batter.
  • Line the bottom of two 9-inch round cake pans with parchment paper and oil. Distribute the cake batter evenly between the two pans.
  • Wrap a wet baking strip around each pan for flatter cakes, if desired. (I skipped this part and it didn’t dome very much).
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the edge of the pans to release from the side. Remove the cake from the pan and cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • Use a serrated knife to level cakes.
