This vegan cake (no eggs or butter!) is so delicious that our kids begged for more. The frosting is silky smooth, and the cake is light and loaded with chocolate flavor, and healthy fats.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour two 9” round cake pans.

  • In a large bowl, whisk first five ingredients.

  • In another bowl, whisk canola oil and next four ingredients. Once combined, add sugar.

  • Pour wet avocado mixture into flour mixture and mix well until smooth. Divide batter evenly between cake pans. Bake cake in two 9” round cake pans, checking for doneness after 30 minutes.

  • To frost, combine all frosting ingredients in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until combined and fluffy. Allow cakes to cool in pans, then turn out after 15 minutes to cool completely. Add a layer of frosting on first cake layer, then top with second cake layer. Add remaining frosting to the top of cake.

Chef's Notes

If you want to frost the sides of the cake, double your frosting.
