Vegan Mint Chocolate Cake

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.

Ingredients

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)

Directions

  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.

Homemade Seitan

Homemade Seitan

Homemade Seitan is pretty easy to make and is perfect for plant-based cooking. Seitan is wheat gluten-based and is high in protein. It may promote metabolic health and is rich in calcium and B vitamins.

Ingredients

Homemade Seitan

  • 8 cups water
  • 4 Tbs soy sauce or tamari
  • 4 Tbs red miso paste
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled & crushed
  • 5-8 bay leaves
  • 2 cups vital wheat gluten
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs tomato paste

Directions

  1. In a large stock pot, combine the water, miso, soy sauce, garlic, and bay leaves and bring to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, while the broth is coming to a boil, combine the vital wheat with the chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, onion and garlic powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together.
  3. Create a well in the center of the bowl, and then add the tomato paste, olive oil, and 1 1/4 cup water. Mix together with your hands and knead the dough until it forms a solid ball.
  4. Divide the dough into three to four equal sizes and press out into rectangular loaves by hand that are flat and even in shape and width. Allow the loaves to rest.
  5. When the broth comes to a boil, reduce the heat to a low simmer.
  6. Once simmering, add the seitan loaves to the pot, giving them enough space to touch the bottom of the pot and not resting on each other.
  7. Cover the pot with a lid, tilting it slightly for steam to escape and allow it to simmer for 45-55 minutes.
  8. After the first 15-20 minutes, using plastic tongs, you should be able to flip the seitan loaves and notice a thick “skin” has formed on the bottom. If it hasn’t, wait to flip the loaf. You may bump the heat up to medium-low after flipping but keep a close eye and make sure it does not come to a boil.
  9. If your seitan has thickened up and is easy to flip, you can bring it to a very low boil for the last 5-10 minutes of cooking to ensure it has cooked all the way through.
  10. Turn off the heat and allow the seitan to cool either in the broth or remove it and rest them on a plate with paper towels.
  11. Store the seitan in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can use a serrated bread knife to slice off thin strips to use for sandwiches, or you can tear it into rustic chunks for searing.

You may save the miso broth by removing the garlic and bay leaves. It makes for a delicious ramen broth!
