A supermoist chocolate cake encased between layers of rich chocolate frosting is at once both a decadent treat and one of life’s simple pleasures. And “simple” is an important descriptor here. Because it’s an oil-based cake—like carrot cake—it doesn’t involve equipment any more complicated than a whisk and a bowl.

Two stealth ingredients make this dessert different: unsweetened coconut milk and instant espresso powder. The former is amazing in its ability to add richness to the cake and stand in for cream in the ganache without overwhelming the dessert with coconut flavor. Espresso powder in the frosting magically highlights the depth of the chocolate.

Because this cake happens to be dairy-free, it’s perfect for Hanukkah, and a godsend for anyone dealing with lactose intolerance. But the cake is so incredibly delicious, no one will notice the lack of cream and butter. They’ll be too busy asking for seconds and thirds
