Chocolate Mint Cake + video

I made this for my Mom's birthday on Dec. 9 after being inspired by a grocery display of chocolate covered mint oreos. Naturally, it had to be made again for a holiday party at work and was a hit. Recipe and vid link behind the cut. Enjoy! Happy New Year everyone!


1 1/2 C flour
1/2 C cocoa powder
1 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 C soy milk
1/4 C + 1 TBSP applesauce

Preheat oven 325. Mix flour, cocoa, sugar, salt, baking soda & powder. Mix in soymilk & applesauce. Pour batter evenly into 2 - 9inch cake pans - bake for 30 min.

1/4 C + 1 TBSP soymilk
3 C confectioners sugar [sift if clumpy]

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Blend ingredients with an electric mixer adding sugar and soymilk incrementally.

3/4 C soymilk
