Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two 9 inch round cake pans with parchment.

Sift the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt into a medium-size bowl. Set the bowl aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, coffee, oil, melted chocolate and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients and whisk until just incorporated. Add vinegar and incorporate. Do not over mix batter.

Distribute batter evenly between cupcake holders or pans. Bake for 20 minutes or until cake springs back to the touch. Place the pans on the cooling rack to cool. Once the cakes are completely cool, run a knife or a plastic dough scraper around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake from the sides. Turn the pan upside to remove the cake
