- Add the margarine, sugar, coconut cream, maple syrup, and salt to a saucepan. Cook uncovered at a gentle simmer for 8 - 10 minutes, stirring often.
- Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Allow the caramel sauce to sit and cool. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
- Grease two 8-inch (20 cm) round cake pans with oil and line the bottom with a cut-out round piece of parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Add the milk and vinegar to a medium bowl. Mix and set aside. The mixture will start to curdle, creating vegan buttermilk.
- Meanwhile, place a sieve over a large bowl and sift through all of the dry ingredients. Mix, and then create a shallow well in the middle.
- Returning to the medium bowl, add the melted coconut oil and vanilla extract.
- Transfer this mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
- Divide the batter between the two cake pans. Give the pans a gentle tap on the counter to release any air bubbles.
- Bake the cakes on the middle rack of the preheated oven for 33 - 35 minutes, or until golden and a thin wooden skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
- Meanwhile, make the frosting by adding the butter to a large bowl. Use an electric electric hand mixer to mix the butter until fluffy, about 5 minutes.
- To the bowl, add the powdered sugar, and beat on low speed until it's all incorporated.
- Add the vanilla extract and ¼ cup of the caramel sauce made in step #1 (reserve the remainder for garnish). Beat until combined.
- When the cakes are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes in the cake pan before transferring to a cooling rack to let them cool off completely.
- Optional step: level your cakes with a serrated knife to create a flat surface for even stacking of the cakes on top of each other.
- Drizzle 2 Tbsp of caramel sauce on one of the cakes.
- Spread roughly 1 cup of frosting on the first cake, then place the second cake on top. Drizzle with another 2 Tbsp of caramel sauce, then proceed to frost the entire cake with the remaining frosting.
- Drizzle the leftover caramel sauce on top of the cake and let it drip down the sides. Top with some berries if desired and enjoy!
- †Coconut cream is the thick part of a can of coconut milk. To more easily obtain the cream, refrigerate the can overnight.
- †We recommend using either soy or pea milk for this recipe, as the high protein content of these milks are what allows the milk to curdle to create vegan buttermilk. We can't guarantee other plant-based milk will be successful.
- †Refined coconut oil is coconut oil that doesn't smell or taste like coconuts. If you prefer a distinct coconut taste, use unrefined coconut oil instead.
- Best if enjoyed immediately.
- Store the whole cake in the fridge for up to 1 - 2 days.
- Store leftovers an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
