  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. 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.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I made it with water instead of coffee (as suggested). It turned out perfect and everyone loved it!

This cake is awesome! I'm not a tofu fan but we loved this. My kids thought it was great. nobody realized it was made with tofu. Completely satisfied my chocolate sweet tooth.

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.

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...
