For the topping:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil, and dust with a little bit of cocoa powder.
  2. Put the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk with a fork. Add the coconut oil, vanilla, vinegar, non-dairy milk, and water, and mix on medium speed.

  3. Pour into prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees about 40-50 minutes. The top should spring back when pressed. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for about an hour or so then remove by loosening the edges with a knife and inverting the pan to free the cake. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. To make the glaze: Put the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 45 seconds, then stir. Microwave for 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until chocolate chips are melted and smooth. Stir in teaspoon of coconut oil.
  5. Pour the chocolate glaze over the completely cooled cake. Sprinkle the coconut flakes over the top.

Recipe Notes

*I have made this with gluten free flour before - it works just fine! It will be a denser cake and will not rise quite as much, but is still very delicious. Namaste Perfect Flour Blend, Enjoy Life, or King Arthur all work well.
