Lightly oil two 8-inch round cake pans and set aside. In a food processor or blender, place the soy milk and tofu, and blend for 1 minute. Add the water and blend an additional 30 seconds. In a medium bowl, sift together the sugar, flour, soy flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the food processor and blend for 1 minute. Add the applesauce, vanilla, and peppermint extract, and blend an additional 30 seconds or more to combine. Add the chocolate chips and pulse 2-3 times to incorporate. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Place the cakes on a rack to cool for 5 minutes. Then invert the layers on to a rack, remove the pans, and allow to cool completely before frosting with frosting of choice, if desired.
*Note: This cake can also be prepared in a 9x13-inch pan for 20-25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Yield: Two 8-inch layers
