The perfect single serving chocolate cakes to treat yo’ self (and maybe even a loved one too) this Valentine’s Day. It’s ooey, gooey, and ready in 30 minutes since we all want to have our cake and eat it too.
‘Tis the season for all things chocolatey, so we thought it would be fun to make these cute little cakes for y’all! They’re single serving and make the perfect treat for you and your special someone. If you’re celebrating alone this year, all the more reason to make yourself one of these puppies and indulge a bit.
Did we mention that these itty bitty cakes require simple ingredients, just one bowl and less than 30 minutes of your time? SCORE.
We had so much fun making these that we’ve made them multiple times already…they’re too fluffy and delicious not to. Topped with some powdered sugar and fresh fruit, you’ve got yourself the best chocolate treat you can dream of.
If you want to take these cakes to the next level of cuteness, you can even make them in the shape of a heart! All you’ll need is a cake pan like this, and you’ll be winning some serious brownie points with your lover.
Need some other dessert ideas for Valentine’s Day? Not too long ago we made homemade versions of classic candy bars like Milky Way, Snickers, Crunch Bars, and Take 5. Make them as a cute homemade gift or just as a fun dessert to enjoy!
If you’re looking for delicious meals to enjoy for Valentine’s Day, we’ve got some tasty selections for you also. This avocado pesto pasta is absolutely dreamy + if you pair it with some restaurant-style garlic bread, you’re in for a treat (if your relationship is fresh, you may want to cut back on the garlic a bit lol).

The perfect single serving chocolate cakes for Valentine’s Day. They require just one bowl and 30 minutes of your time. Did we mention it was vegan and easy to make?
100ml filtered water
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon flaxseed meal (or chia seeds)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
31g 72% dark chocolate, finely chopped (or chocolate of your choice)
1/4 cup turbinado sugar*
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
Two 4.5-inch ramekins
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a medium bowl, mix together all of the wet ingredients. Set aside for 10 minutes to thicken.
In the meantime, prepare the ramekins. Lightly oil the inside of the ramekins and then dust them with cacao powder. You can use a small strainer for the dusting or you can add in about 1 tablespoon of cacao powder into the oiled ramekin and move the ramekin around to coat it. Shake off and discard of any excess cacao powder. Refer to the video in the post.
Once the wet ingredients have set, add in the dry ingredients. Using a fine mesh strainer, sift in the all-purpose flour and the cacao powder. Add in the remaining dry ingredients and mix everything together with a whisk until uniform. Keep in mind that the batter will be a clumpy due to the chopped dark chocolate.
Evenly divide the batter into the prepared ramekins. Place into the oven (directly on the rack) and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick runs clean.
Remove the cakes from the oven and cool for 10 minutes. Run a knife or thin metal spatula around the sides of each cake. Invert each ramekin onto a serving plate and gently shake out the cake. Dust the cakes with powdered sugar if desired and add garnishes of your choice. Enjoy!
Regular ol’ sugar or coconut sugar work well in this, too!
You can either separate the batter into two small ramekins or use all of the batter to make one thick cake in a larger ramekin.
