How to Make One-Minute Chocolate Cake for One

by Shayne 🎨

This is a recipe I like to make for a quick little dessert. I got the idea from the blog "Chocolate Covered Katie". It only takes about a minute to cook in the microwave. And it's vegan.


  • 1 Tablespoon Plus 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 3 Tablespoons Flour ( whatever kind of flour you like)
  • ⅛ Teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ¼ Teaspoons Baking powder
  • 3 Teaspoons Applesauce (or vegetable oil)
  • 3 Tablespoons Non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • ½ Teaspoons Vanilla extract
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather all of your supplies...

    Step 2

    Mix all of the dry ingredients together (I'm making enough for 3 mini cakes)

    Step 3

    Mix the dry ingredients very thoroughly.

    Step 4

    Take a peek over at the husband chopping corn for grilling... Look at the dog watching all the action!

    Step 5

    Add in the wet ingredients. I also mixed some chocolate chips to the batter.

    Step 6

    Pour the batter into a small dish, ramekin or even a coffee mug.

    Step 7

    Put it in the microwave oven for 1 minute. Depending on your microwave it may take longer to cook. You can experiment and decide.

    Step 8

    Here's the finished little single serving cake. It's hot!

    Step 9

    Looks good! Can't wait to dig in!

    Step 10

    Add a scoop of non-dairy ice cream. I used soy ice cream.

    Step 11

    Serve your friends while the cake is still warm.
