Chocolate Crazy Cake


This Chocolate Crazy Cake recipe is hands down one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever tasted. The best thing about it? If you use coconut oil for the frosting, this cake is completely dairy free, meaning it is a great recipe to make for someone who is allergic to dairy.

To make this cake, start by mixing the dry ingredients together. Gradually add in the remaining ingredients, starting with coconut oil, vanilla and water. Next add the coffee and vinegar. Don’t be concerned if the batter starts to foam up. This is normal as the baking soda reacts with the acid in the vinegar. Transfer the batter to the pans and bake. Make frosting by mixing sugar, cocoa powder, butter or coconut oil, vanilla, water and sea salt together. Frost the cake and enjoy!

Steps to make Chocolate Crazy Cake


Heat the oven and prepare a pan

Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Lightly grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans.


Mix dry ingredients


Mix 3 cups of flour, 2 cups of sugar, 1 teaspoons of salt, 6 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 2 teaspoons of baking soda, and ½ a teaspoon of ginger together in a large baking bowl. Stir well until all ingredients are fully combined.


Add coconut oil, vanilla and water


Mix melted and cooled ¾ cup of coconut oil with 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 2 cups of warm water. Add to dry ingredients and stir well.


Add coffee and vinegar


Pour in 1 tablespoon of strong coffee and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Stir well to remove any lumps from the batter.




Transfer half of the batter to each of the prepared baking pans. Bake for about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Leave to cool


Remove the cakes from the oven and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.


Prepare frosting


In a separate bowl, mix 3½ cups of powdered sugar with 1¼ cups of cocoa powder and a pinch of salt. Add one teaspoon of vanilla extract and ¼ cup of coconut oil. Gradually pour in ½ a cup of water, stirring well between additions until the icing has the right consistency for spreading.


Frost the cake


Place one of the cakes on a plate and spoon some of the frosting on top. Spread it out using a palette knife before placing the second cake on top. Spoon the remaining frosting on top and spread it around the top and sides of the cake.



Serve on its own and enjoy.

So happy this recipe isn't a boxed cake recipe like everything else now adays..starting from scratch is the best kinda start there is for a cake.

I decided to make some cupcakes out of this recipe instead of a large cake and added sprinkles to the frosting, really good recipe and the cupcakes turned out great.

Despite the amazing taste there is a downside which is after it fully cools it does crumble a bit, other than that good cake recipe.

With this recipe you don't have to go through so much work there is barely anything to add and do which makes it simple and affordable too.

My kids adore this cake and gobbled it up so quickly, now I know what the crazy is in the name is meant for, my kids bouncing around the house lol.


Very awesome recipe can put literally anything in it i actually added some bananas to the top of mine since fruit goes really good with chocolate.


I love sweets, so this dessert is perfect for me.
