Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9-inch baking dish/cake pan.
  2.  To make the cake, whisk the milk, vegan mayonnaise, coffee, and vinegar together in a bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, stevia, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add the milk mixture and stir until just combined. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. To make the crumble, in a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and peppermint. Add the melted vegan butter and use your hands to thoroughly work it into the dry ingredients. Spoon on top of the batter, covering the entire area.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let it cool slightly, and serve warm or at room temperature.
