Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Rub enough coconut oil into a 9-inch springform pan to lightly coat bottom and sides.

  • Blend cake mix and tofu together in a food processor until well mixed, 1 to 2 minutes. Add brewed coffee and blend until well mixed, scraping sides down as needed. Pour batter into the prepared springform pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.

  • Mix chocolate chips, almond milk, and powdered peanut butter together in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Mix and heat for 30 seconds more. Spoon chocolate topping over cake.

Cook's Note:

Depending on your taste, you may choose to use water or brewed coffee to add to the cake mixture. The coffee enhances the rich chocolate flavor.

Cashew milk can be used in place of the almond milk, if desired.

1.10.16 Oh my this surprised me...it's REALLY good! My first time using tofu in a cake and my first time using PB2 peanut butter powder. This cake was incredibly moist incredibly easy incredibly tasty and has incredible eye appeal!! The topping was done after 30 seconds in the microwave and had a rich chocolate-peanut butter flavor. I did add a few chopped peanuts as a garnish. I seldom buy cake mixes but wouldn't hesitate to buy another to make this again...and again...and again. My sweet tooth is doing the happy dance. Jessica Croisant thanks for sharing your recipe. UPDATE Did a variation on this recipe today using swiss chocolate cake mix white chocolate chips and garnished with some strawberries and blueberries. As always turned out delicious! Read More

Just scrumptious. Delightfully moist with a light tender crumb. So easy to make too with minimal clean-up after. I anticipate making this again and again. Read More

Great recipe. I would never have thought to use soft tofu to replace the eggs and oil in the cake mix recipe. It tastes very good has substantially fewer calories and reduces the fat content while adding protein The only change I made to the recipe is that I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. Read More

Excellent! I made the cake, didn't change anything, but didn't make the frosting. It seems really thick and has an almost poofy batter compared to regular cake batter. I prefer my chocolate cake cold anyway so stored it in the refrigerator. It was thick, dense, rich; reminded me of chocolate cake you get at restaurants. I've already made it a second time, seems easier than following regular box mix directions. Read More
