Ingredients for Cake:

- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 1/2 cups sugar

- 1 tsp baking soda

- 1 tsp cinnamon

- 1/2 tsp salt

- 1 cup non-dairy yogurt (I use non-dairy vanilla flavor)

- 1/2 cup canola oil or vegan butter softened

- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- 1 cup dairy-free almond milk (may substitute other plant-based milk, but almond has best consistency for cake)

- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Ingredients for Frosting:

- 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar)

- 2 Tbsp pure, unsweetened cocoa powder

- 2 Tbsp vegan butter, softened

- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

- 5-6 Tbsp almond milk (add slowly and adjust for desired consistency)

Instructions for Cake:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 10-inch bundt pan. (Make sure your bundt mold is well-greased as cake may stick to crevices inside the pan.)

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the non-dairy yogurt, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract until well combined.

  4. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry mixture in the large mixing bowl. Mix on medium speed until just combined.

  5. In a separate small bowl, mix the dairy-free milk and apple cider vinegar. Allow it to sit for a minute and curdle slightly.

  6. Add the milk mixture to the cake batter and mix on medium speed until smooth.

  7. Pour the cake batter into the greased bundt mold and spread it evenly.

  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. (If using a square 9-inch baking pan, reduce baking time by 10 minutes.)

  9. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 20 minutes, then transfer it to a plate to cool completely.

  10. Once the cake has cooled, drizzle it with vegan chocolate frosting from recipe included.

Instructions for Frosting:

  1. Add the powdered confectioner's sugar, cocoa powder, vegan butter, vanilla and 1 tablespoon of almond milk to a small bowl, and whisk ingredients together until smooth.

  2. Continue to add almond milk, whisking in 1 Tbsp at a time until the icing reaches the desired consistency. For a bundt cake, you'll want to drizzle it without making it too watery. For a layer or square cake, you'll want the frosting thicker, but still spreadable.

  3. Drizzle or spread the finished frosting over the cake and let stand for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
