2. Single Serving Chocolate Mocha Cake

Chocolate lovers rejoice, this vegan dessert looks absolutely sinful! Besides the fact that this dessert is all about chocolate, I like that it’s a single serving cake so you can enjoy this alone or make individual cakes for guests! And the second best thing about this cake is that you can make it in less than 5 minutes! Oh, and did I tell you that’s it chocolate?!


1 tablespoon plus 2 tsp cocoa powder

3 tablespoons spelt flour (or white, or Arrowhead Mills gf)

1/2 tsp instant coffee granules

1/8 tsp salt

2 tsp evaporated cane juice, or sugar (edit: xylitol works)

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 stevia packet (or 1 more tablespoon sugar)

1 tablespoon coconut or veg oil (Edit: many commenters have said it still tastes good if you sub applesauce or mashed banana. But I can’t personally vouch for the results if you make that substitution.)

3 tablespoons milk of choice (I used almond milk)

1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

For ice cream topping:

2 cups milk-of-choice or nondairy creamer or coconut milk (see note below)

1/4 cup agave, maple syrup, or other sweetener (brown sugar is really good)

1 packet stevia (omit if using agave or maple syrup)

1/8 tsp salt

1 and 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

optional ingredients for whatever flavor you desire


Combine dry ingredients and mix very, very well. Add liquid, stir, then transfer to a little dish, ramekin, or even a coffee mug. Microwave 45-50 seconds (or more, depending on how powerful your microwave is). If you don’t want to eat it straight out of the dish, be sure to spray your dish first (and then wait for the cake to cool before trying to remove it).

For ice cream topping:

Mix all ingredients (except optional ingredients, if they are chunky) in a dish. Then simply transfer to your ice cream maker and watch the magic! (I have a Cuisinart, and it took 15 minutes to turn the liquid into ice cream. Warning: Make sure your ice cream maker’s base is completely frozen before use, or it will NOT work!!)
