Vegan Chocolate Pudding Cake

What sounds more amazing than merging chocolate cake and chocolate pudding together? Especially when it is vegan. All the chocolatey goodness you want but without actual milk chocolate!


This is one of those recipes I love that is vegan, but unless otherwise told, you wouldn’t know the difference. It’s moist and very chocolate.

Vegan Chocolate Pudding Cake

Adapted from All Recipes

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water


  • 3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a medium-sized baking dish (or a 8-9 inch pan).

In a medium/large-sized bow, mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt until combined.


Add the milk, oil and vanilla and whisk together until clump-free and smooth.

Pour the batter into the baking dish and spread evenly.


In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cocoa “topping”. Then evenly sprinkle on top on the batter.


Once the topping is on, pour the boiling water over the batter. Do not mix it up. It looks a bit strange the way it is, but trust me, it all works out.


Bake for 35-40 minutes. The cake will look slightly undercooked, but it will be fine. Allow it to cool for 15-20 minutes.


When ready to eat, cut the amount you want out and place on plate. Spoon the pudding from under the cake on top of the cake. Sprinkle with whatever topping you prefer.
