Chocolate Cake for Valentine’s Day (Vegan)

Chocolate Cake for Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Missed all of you for nearly 3 months, I have been away and it has lots of fantastic things happened recently.

Today is Valentine’s day, it seems we haven’t celebrated this special day since a long time ago.

Despite that, I like to bake this little chocolate cake for my hubby. 🙂

This is a simple, no fuss and easy to achieve success even a new baker.

You can get a lave cake from this simple recipe, but I have baked a little bit over-time accidentally. Sadly, I can’t have a lovely lava cake that I want to. This is what I get at last: a fluffy, soft chocolate cake.

Vegan Chocolate Cake (Lava Cake)

Ingredient:   (Make 2 ramekins)

  • 1/2cup Plain flour
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4tsp Baking soda
  • 5tbsp Unrefined brown sugar
  • 1/2cup Coldwater
  • 2tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1/2tbsp Lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1/2tsp vanilla extract

Added later:

  • 2 Dark chocolate cubes, 75% cocoa, (dairy-free)

Method: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  2. Sieve the plain flour in a bowl, with the salt, cacao powder, and baking soda, set aside.
  3. Put sugar and cold water in another small bowl, stir until the sugar dissolved.
  4. Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice, mix well.
  5. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined but not over mix.
  6. Pour the batter in the greased ramekins.
  7. Then, place one chocolate cube in the batter, press down to immerse into the batter.
  8. Place in the hot oven and bake for 27 minutes. Don’t overcook if you want a lava cake.
  9. Remove out from the oven and leave to cool 2 to 3 minutes. Then gently invert the ramekins on a serving plate.
  10. Tap the base of the mould and let the cake slid on the plate.
  11. Dust some cocoa powder or icing sugar on top. Then serve immediately.

Skinny Red Velvet Cheesecake Pot with Raspberry jelly~ Vegan

I have one post from last year ~ Skinny Chocolate and beetroot cake. They’re quite similar but with a little bit different from each other.

I constantly feel so curious and miserable about why people worked the red velvet cake with loads of red colouring??? Oh Yes! They look so beautiful and bright red. But No! Did people always say colouring is no good for our health? I saw some of the recipes with tablespoons of red colouring to make the red velvet cake to achieve the bright red, is it your favourite cake? If you say yes, I’m so sorry!
