Want a simple and guilt-free way to satisfy a chocolate craving? Look no further than this ultra-easy real food single serving chocolate cake!
Once, when my children caught me sneaking in a piece of my beloved dark chocolate, I justified my treat by telling them that it was my medicine. I mean, cocoa clearly has some serious health benefits, right?
They laughed, let me have my “medicine,” then logically asked for some of their own.
I can’t remember if I gave them any or not, but the dark-chocolate-as-medicine-joke has stuck. When I’m caught with dark chocolate, they ask if I’m having my medicine, and of course become stricken with something that requires their own dose.
(Before someone panics about my children growing up thinking that medicine is candy, don’t worry. Those in on the joke are old enough to know the difference.)
Last winter, after a particularly mommy-ish day, I just wanted my medicine in the form of chocolate cake. Something warm that I could eat with a fork while sipping something yummy. I found lots of chocolate mug cakes online, but I really wanted something that used coconut flour and other real food ingredients.
I never found anything, so I set out to make my own. (Imagine how grueling the experimentation was!) I’ve finally developed the perfect chocolate cake for one recipe. Best of all, it’s such a cinch to make!
Because really, if you’ve had a day and you just want some chocolate cake, the recipe better be easy!…
