This recipe is from Oliva Biermann’s new cookbook Liv B’s Easy Everyday, which features 100 sheet-pan, one-pot, and 5-ingredient recipes. We were so excited to try this recipe, and I’m not kidding when I say this recipe didn’t disappoint.

This cake is amazing for entertaining because it is crazy-easy to make and your guests will never guess it has only five ingredients! The texture is light but still decadent, and rich in chocolate flavor. It’s best served with a big dollop of sweet coconut whipped cream and fresh berries.

Here’s What You Need to Make this Chocolate Soufflé Cake:

  • All-Purpose Flour – When baking, our go-to is always the Bob’s Red Mill all-purpose flour, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand. We often get questions about whether or not other flours can be used, such as a gluten-free blend or whole wheat, but since this isn’t our recipe, we don’t feel comfortable giving direction on that. However, the rule of thumb for whole wheat flour is to only substitute up to 50% of the all-purpose flour.
  • Cane Sugar If you want to be extra sure that the sugar you’re using is vegan, buy organic! We like to use the Wholesome brand.
  • Cocoa Powder – This recipe calls for unsweetened cocoa powder, so make sure you don’t accidentally get one that is sweetened. If you want to make this recipe extra photo-worthy, it’s recommended to dust the cocoa powder over the cake when serving!
  • Baking Powder – This will help get the chocolate soufflé cake nice and fluffy.
  • Canola Oil: Canola oil is great for baking because it’s so affordable

Description

This cake is amazing for entertaining because it is crazy-easy to make and your guests will never guess it has only 5 ingredients! The texture is light but still decadent, and rich in chocolate flavor. It’s best served with a big dollop of sweet coconut whipped cream and fresh berries.

Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil

Additional Tools:

  • 8-inch round cake pan, lined with parchment

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Add the water and canola oil; stir to combine. The batter should be fairly smooth, but a few small lumps are okay.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the top is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.

Notes

  • For an Instagram worthy presentation, sprinkle a dusting of unsweetened cocoa powder over the top just before serving,
  • This cake is best made and served on the same day. However, leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.
