Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake for One

So, the title says “for one”, but if you really wanted to be nice, this could be for two. But I like chocolate cake, and just half of one of these wouldn’t be enough for my pb-chocolate-loving husband. Just saying…

By the way, you can sprinkle in some Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips, because you really can’t have too much chocolate.

  • 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup Grade B
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 c Almond Flour -OR- 1 Tbsp packed Coconut Flour. I've made it with both and it's fantastic both ways
  • 1/8 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 dash Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2-3 Tbsp Creamy Peanut Butter or nut butter of your choice, hazelnut would be fantastic!
  • Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips optional


  • Preheat oven to 350. To conserve energy for such a small dish, use the toaster oven, if you have one.
  • In an oven safe ramekin (I use my 2 cup Pyrex dish), melt coconut oil. Mix in maple syrup and cocoa powder.
  • Whisk in your egg (no need to break out the whisk, a fork is fine).
  • Add flour of choice, mix until smooth.
  • Stir in vanilla, baking soda, and salt.
  • Drop peanut butter and chocolate chips onto the top of your batter and swirl/gently mix with a butter knife until you have a nice swirled pattern.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. If you want, you can separate this into 2 cupcake lines and bake for approximately 12-15 minutes. If you're baking two ramekins, increase your bake time to approximately 25 minutes (watch closely at the end).
  • Insert a toothpick and if it comes out clean, the cake is done.
  • Eat (and maybe share)!

  1. Wow! I’m amazed at how good these are! The texture is almost exactly like a good traditional cake! I doubled the recipe and got six cupcakes. I used foil liners and filled them 2/3-3/4 full. I wasn’t expecting them to rise. They did, but then I thought they would sink as the cooled, but they didn’t. They look beautiful. I put a small dollop of pb and three chocolate chips on each one. Thank you! I’m new to your site, but I’m a regular now.
