Single Serving Double Chocolate Protein Cake {MMAZ #69}

Single Serving Double Chocolate Protein Cake #vegan #glutenfree

The last time we featured chocolate on Meatless Mondays from A-Z, I failed miserably. When I chose Xocolatl for this week’s ingredient, it was my chance to redeem myself. So when I found myself in the kitchen on Sunday on the fourth failed attempt, I was honestly frustrated.

With my final 1/3 cup of applesauce, I tried again and prayed it would work this time. My goal was for a chocolate cake that everyone can enjoy without sacrificing your diet. Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, soy free – a protein cake that all my friends could enjoy!

With no extra ingredients to waste, I photographed the last batch before testing. With the final photos taken, I brought the bowl to Kirk for approval and told him he had to be honest.

Since I’m sharing the recipe, you can guess the outcome of that conversation, right? The full story is that Kirk didn’t like the sauce that I used (he’s not a fan of bitter chocolate), but loved the cake. I really enjoy bittersweet chocolate, so the sauce is perfect for my tastes. If you’re not a fan of that type of chocolate, just leave it off.

      I don’t like milk chocolate either, although every once in a while I’ll get desperate and try one. I’ve made most of my cakes without eggs, it’s easier than you think. :) Let me know if you do!
