Unbelievably Vegan Chocolate Cookie Dough Cake

if you’re craving a delectable treat that’s not only vegan but also packed with chocolatey goodness, then you’re in for a real treat with this Unbelievably Vegan Chocolate Cookie Dough Cake!!

this indulgent dessert is the perfect combination of a moist, chocolatey cake and luscious cookie dough. and the best part? it’s all plant-based! so, let’s dive into this absolute heaven of a dessert recipe.

the cake offers a taste and texture experience like no other! the cake itself is moist and rich with a deep chocolate flavor, thanks to the cocoa powder and maple syrup.

it’s not overly sweet though, allowing the cookie dough to shine through.

the cookie dough balls add a perfect contrast in texture and taste. they remain slightly gooey in the center, providing a chewy, indulgent sensation that pairs perfectly with the cake’s soft crumb.

the peanut butter, maple syrup, and chocolate chips in the cookie dough layer create a combo of flavors that will have you coming back for more.

this cake is a crowd-pleaser that will leave everyone craving seconds! i recommend making this for a special occasion because guests will be in awe.

one of the standout features of this cake is its irresistibly fudgy texture. it’s like biting into a slice of pure chocolatey heaven.

the fudgy quality comes from the carefully crafted balance of ingredients and the addition of almond flour, cocoa powder, and maple syrup.

the almond flour not only adds a nutty richness but also contributes to the cake’s moist and dense texture with healthy fats. combined with the cocoa powder, it creates a deep, dark chocolate flavor that’s both decadent and satisfying.

the use of maple syrup instead of granulated sugar plays a significant role in achieving the fudgy consistency. it adds moisture and a distinct, natural sweetness that enhances the overall texture.

the result is a cake that’s not overly dry or crumbly but instead maintains an almost brownie-like fudginess.

as you take a forkful of this cake, you’ll notice how it melts in your mouth, leaving behind a velvety, indulgent feeling.

you could even add some more cookie dough balls on top for texture!

the melted chocolate topping is like the proverbial cherry on top of your cake, except it’s even better!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
    1 and 1/2 cups organic all-purpose flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 cup cocoa powder
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    1/2 cup coconut sugar
    1/2 cup applesauce
    2 tsp apple cider vinegar (acv)
    1 cup almond milk
    1 flax egg (1 tbsp flaxseed meal + 2 tbsp water)

    cookie dough ingredients:
    1/2 cup almond flour
    1/2 cup oat flour
    1/4 cup runny peanut butter
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    1/3 cup chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips melted with 1 tbsp coconut oil

Directions

  • preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease an 9-inch round cake pan.
  • in a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cocoa powder.

  • in another bowl, mix together the maple syrup, coconut sugar, applesauce, apple cider vinegar, almond milk, and flax egg.

  • add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring until well combined. make sure not to overmix.
  • pour 1/2 of the cake batter into the prepared pan and smooth it out evenly.
  • now, let’s prepare the cookie dough. in a separate bowl, combine almond flour, oat flour, peanut butter, maple syrup, and chocolate chips. mix until it forms a cookie dough-like consistency.
  • roll the cookie dough mixture into small balls and place them evenly into the cake batter. then, cover the cookie dough with the rest of the cake batter.
  • bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. keep an eye on it, as baking times may vary.

  • once done, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.

  • in a microwave-safe bowl, heat the vegan chocolate chips in 15 to 20-second intervals, stirring each time, until the chocolate is smooth and fully melted. alternatively, you can use a double boiler on the stovetop for this step.

  • top the cake with the chocolate and enjoy!!
