Gooey Dark Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Hey all! Hope you are doing well. Today I am going to leave out all of the extraneous information and let this cake speak for itself.

This chocolate cake is ultra rich and decadently dense. It's almost like a brownie but better!
The whipped cream cheese frosting is the perfect sweet and light accompaniment.

Feel free to veganize this recipe by using applesauce instead of yogurt and any frosting of your choosing.

Gooey Chocolate Cake

8-10 slices
Adapted from here


1 cup spelt flour
6 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1/3 cup yogurt
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp almond extract

Cream Cheese Frosting

1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tbsp almond milk
dash salt


1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease an 8 inch round pan
2. In a large bowl, combine the spelt flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and coconut sugar. Stir very well. 
3. In a new bowl, whisk coconut oil, yogurt, water, and almond extract. Pour wet into dry and stir until just combined.
4. Pour into pan and bake for about 25 minutes until batter has risen and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
5. As your cake bakes, get started on the frosting. 
6. Place butter and cream cheese in a bowl and beat until blended together. Add the rest of the ingredients in and beat until light and creamy.
7. Allow cake to cool completely before frosting
8. This cake tastes even better the next day so don't be worried about letting it sit!
