Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Grease three 7.5 inch springform pans with coconut oil.*
  • In a large mixing bowl add all of the dry ingredients and combine. 
  • In a separate mixing bowl add all wet ingredients and whisk until well combined. 
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until fully combined around 1-2 minutes. 
  • Evenly divide batter between the three springform baking pans and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile prepare the frosting. Add 24oz of strawberry cream cheese into a mixing bowl. Add plant-based milk and mix with a hand mixer for 10 seconds. 
  • Once all three cakes have completely cooled, assemble the cake by adding around ⅓ cup of cream cheese between each layer, using an offset spatula to spread the frosting evenly as well as the outside of the cake.
