Valentine's Day Mini Chocolate Cake For One

Nothing quite like your own mini cake all to yourself! I've been a fan of mini/single serving dessert recipes for a while now. You can just whip up enough for you = no temptations with the rest of the batch if there is only one serving!

So with Valentine's Day in mind and after many failed attempts I have finally got this little delicious treat right! 

A chocolate cake for one topped with vegan cream and pomegranates. Why not make it for your Valentine or show yourself some love and make it for YOU. I always love receiving something a little more personal where you can see effort has been made. So I urge you to try this out, it's so good!

Valentine's Day Mini Chocolate Cake For One 


  • 3 1/2 tbsp spelt flour or gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 baking powder
  • pinch of fine sea salt
  • 3-4 tbsp water 
  • 1 tbsp oil (coconut, olive etc)
  • stevia  to taste (approx 10 drops if using liquid.)

  • Preheat oven to 180C and lightly oil a ramekin dish. 
  • In a small bowl or even a coffee cup mix all the dry ingredients together. Make sure they are really combined well. 
  • Add in wet ingredients and mix through. Just add 3 tbsp of water first and then a fourth if needed.
  • Fold into the ramekin and level out with a spoon. 
  • Place in the oven for 13-16 minutes. Mine took 15 minutes. Make sure you check the center with a fork, it should come out clean if it's ready.  
  • Top with vegan cream, about 3 tbsp did the job, and something pink/red for Valentine's Day like strawberries, raspberries or pomegranates.  

Obviously I opted for some self love and make it for myself. YUM.

How do you feel about Valentine's Day? I don't believe in putting pressure on the day but it's a nice reminder to show the one you love some appreciation.
