Quick. Easy. Fuss-free. This Single-Serving Chocolate Cake delivers fudgy satisfaction— with almost zero effort.
Sometimes you just want chocolate cake. Something sweet and irresistibly fudgy. But making a whole chocolate cake can be a lot of work. It often requires using several bowls, beating egg whites, and acquiring specialty ingredients. And as a result of all that laboring in the kitchen, you usually have a big mess to clean up.
That’s where this incredibly simple recipe comes in! Since it’s a single serving, this chocolate cake has built-in portion control. You just need a few minutes to put it together, and the recipe makes one perfectly-sized piece of chocolate cake.
This recipe is made with high-protein almond meal instead of white flour. So it’s perfectly Paleo and grain-free. If you want to get fancy, add in some mini chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, or a few raspberries. You could even substitute carob powder for the cocoa powder to make it a caffeine-free cake.
So the next time you’re craving something sweet, whip up this Paleo single-serving chocolate cake. And enjoy it as an afternoon snack or after-dinner treat.
