  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder well packed
  • 1/16 tsp baking powder
  • dash sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix the cocoa, baking powder, salt and sugar together in a small bowl.
  • Whisk in the egg, milk, and vanilla until the mixture is smooth.
  • Pour the batter into a small, VERY well-oiled ramekin (mine is an eight ounce). See tips below for how to keep the cake from sticking!
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes (middle should still be jiggly).
  • Cool for 3-5 minutes and carefully run a knife or silicone spatula around the edge of the cake.
  • Invert the ramekin onto a small plate, tapping the bottom to release the cake.
  • Eat up!
