The Moving Day Chocolate Cake: Yes It's A Real Holiday!

It's the sixth month mark of veganism and also moving out day for Olivia (my sweet adorable baby kitty cat) and me.
Why not celebrate both milestones with cake?!
We're talking velvety, moist heaven, no need for frosting type of cake.

Ohhhh bubbly, bubbly!
Moving Day Chocolate Cake

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cocoa
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon pure almond extract
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons Peanut Butter Co.'s Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter (optional)
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
1 cup chocolate almond milk (or plain if that's just too chocolaty for ya)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease/flour a nine inch cake pan.
Mix dry and wet ingredients separately.
Slowly blend wet into the dry, stirring until even and smooth.
Pour batter into prepared cake pan.
Bake for 25- 30 minutes.
Cool before eating.
Forked to death!

Enjoyed a slice with fresh, organic blueberries.
Not big on frosting this kind of cake.
It's sweet enough, but fresh fruits like strawberries, raspberries, cherries, or blueberries complement the moist richness of decadent chocolate nicely.
Slivers of almonds or crushed walnuts
