Quick Bowl-Mix Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding Cake

I promised you I’d have something chocolatey for you for the weekend and I do like to set goals and smash them – especially of the chocolate variety. So, here is a super simple chocolate cake pudding thing that you can whip up in honestly, 2 minutes, stirred in a bowl, popped into a bake tin or tray and cooked for 15-20 minutes. I hope you’ll find it the perfect thing for you to be able to whip up and serve fresh out of the oven with ice cream or cream when the kids have friends over or when you as a family just want a yummy indulgence together.

So easy. Enjoy!

That’s it. Totally unstyled, fresh out of the oven, utterly delicious. My priority was getting you the recipe so I hope you don’t mind! Enjoy and please show me your efforts over on instagram @lowtoxlife when you make it – you guys always make things way prettier than my quick, rustic efforts!

Quick Bowl-Mix Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding Cake Recipe

Prep Time2 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time17 mins
Servings: 6


  • Pre heat an oven at 180 / 350C and line a small cake tin or baking dish (mine was 20cm by 12cm to make a 1.5inch thick little cake pudding)
  • Pop all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix through briefly
  • Add the olive oil, maple syrup and egg and stir through to combine.
  • Pop into the baking tin, scatter the chocolate chips on top and press them in a bit
  • Pop the cake into the oven
  • Bake 15-20 minutes. 15mins is better if you want a pudding vibe. 20mins if you want a lunchbox vibe.
  • Serve with cream, ice cream, whipped cream ( I have my coconut whipped cream down the page of my banoffee pie recipe here) – dairy or coconut based, either will work deliciously.
  • Want to take this next level? Chocolate fudge sauce. You’re welcome.

      The coconut flour’s high fibre. You could drop back the tapioca by a tbsp and do 2 tsp flax instead x

  1. Far out Alexx, you have such a talent! I whipped this up in minutes and left it in the bench to cool whilst I put my son to sleep. Well, silly me, when I returned my nearly 4 year old had eaten 90% of it!!!!
    What it did get to taste was absolutely delicious and my daughter certainly liked it.
    “I was hungry mum and it was really yummy!”
    I will be waking this weekend for my sons birthday. I shall keep it out of reach if my daughter this time!!

  2. This looks delicious. Unfortunately my husband is allergic to coconut. Could you please let me know what would be a suitable alternative gluten free flour, and in what quantity? Thanks
