Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 35-40 minutes

Yield: 10 servings


  • Cup of all-purpose flour (240 grams)
  • Cup of cocoa powder (60 grams)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of non-dairy milk (240 ml)
  • 2/3 cup of brown sugar (200 grams)
  • 3/4 cup of granulated white sugar (150 grams)
  • Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (170 grams) 
  • 8 tablespoons canola. grapeseed, or mild vegetable oil (112 grams)
  • 1/4 cup of white vinegar (60 ml)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Cup of white chocolate chips (60 grams)
  • 3/4 cup of unsweetened coconut (90 grams)

Preparation Method of Vegan Devil’s Food Cake Recipe:


In a large mixing bowl, sift flour and cocoa powder.


Add salt and vanilla extract, add the non-dairy milk and mix until combined.


In a small saucepan, combine white vinegar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Heat over low heat until hot but not boiling (about 30 minutes). Add hot liquid to dry ingredients and mix well. The batter will be very thick, so you may need to add extra non-dairy milk to reach the right consistency.


In a large skillet, cook the cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips with canola oil over medium heat, occasionally stirring until melted and blended. Turn off the stove. Place the chocolate chips in a large bowl. Once cooled, pour the melted chocolate chips over the chocolate cake batter (about 1/2 cup).


Fold white chocolate chips, coconut, and half of the white vinegar into the cake batter.


Pour into an oiled 9 x 13-inch pan and level off any peaks. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the cake. Let cool completely before frosting with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate ganache.

Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting (Optional):


Once cool, cut the chocolate cake into 8 equal slices. Place each slice on a cake stand or plate. Place one cup of cream cheese in a small bowl, add one teaspoon of vanilla extract, and mix until smooth.

Spread the cream cheese frosting over each slice of the chocolate cake and top with the remaining white vinegar (if desired). Sprinkle with additional white chocolate chips if desired.


Pour 1 cup of hot water over 1 cup of white chocolate chips and allow to sit for 4-5 minutes until melted. Place chocolate ganache in a piping bag and use a star tip to form two chocolate stars on each slice of the deviled chocolate cake.


Pipe a dollop of frosting on each slice of the chocolate cake. Add 2-3 chocolate stars and top with remaining frosting. Enjoy!
