1 minute vegan chocolate cake .. it exists!

I’ve seen these 1-minute cake recipes everywhere. My mom recommended one, and Pinterest is full of them. I found this one on one of my favorite blogs {and the only dessert-specific blog I ever look at. All her recipes are healthy, vegan, and most are quick}. This is my kind of baking. Since I *slightly* adapted her recipe {to make it coconut-y and oil-free}, I am posting my version:

One-Minute Vegan Chocolate Cake


  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons white flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 splenda packet
  • 1 tablespoon applesauce
  • 3 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs shredded coconut


Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add liquid, and mix together. Add shredded coconut. Transfer to a coffee mug. Microwave  one minute. Let it cool about 30 seconds before eating.

I just doubled everything in a bowl and divided it between two mugs, and microwaved separately, to make one for hubby and me. YUM.
