Vegan Mint Chocolate Cake

Vegan Mint Chocolate Cake that is rich in flavor but refreshing with its delicious minty frosting. You can also try making a cream cheese frosting by substituting the non-dairy butter for a non-dairy cream cheese option.


Time: 45-60 minutes

Vegan Mint Chocolate Cake

  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tbs baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbs vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar

Mint Buttercream Frosting

  • 1/2 cup non-dairy butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbs non-dairy milk
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbs mint extract
  • 2-3 drops green food coloring (optional)
  • 1 cup non-dairy chocolate chips, pulsed in a food processor (set aside for decoration)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and prepare two 8 or 9 inch round cake pans by lightly coating with cooking spray or non-dairy butter and dusting with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, sift or whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil and vanilla. Then, mix in the coffee until well combined. Finally, mix in the apple cider vinegar.
  4. Create a well in the center of the flour bowl, then slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir together with a whisk until the batter is free of lumps.
  5. Once your batter is mixed, evenly distribute it between the two pans. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean once poked in the center of the cake.
  6. While the cake is baking, whip together the non-dairy butter with a mixer until light and fluffy. Then, gradually mix in the vanilla, mint extract, green food coloring, and powdered sugar on the low setting. Get the frosting good and fluffy again. Store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to decorate, but if it sits too long, it’ll need to warm up again because the buttercream will stiffen up.
  7. Allow the cake to cool for 15-20 minutes before decorating, adding a layer of frosting on top of one of the cakes, then add the second cake on top and decorate however you desire.
  8. Decorate the frosted cake with the chopped chocolate chips. Serve and enjoy!
  9. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
