Vegan Lava Cake

Updated: Dec 13, 2019

A few days ago, I was living my best life. Taking some pictures in the woods being my #artsyself until... the wind blew my camera over damaging my lens.


With a pang of deep sadness, I had to find my way on eBay to replace the part, so in the meantime, I thought I would go OG Under the Willow Tree.

... meaning I used my phone camera to take these pictures of these Vegan Lava Cakes.

When I first started creating content I didn't have a DSLR, but I did have a phone and I took some ... dare I say cringy photos of bad lighting, odd angles, and secret filming so no one in my family would see me doing it lol (don't believe me scroll all the way to the beginning of my Instagram).

So, I threw it back to the ole camera phone days and the results weren't horrible... but was it my favorite filming experience?

Hell no.

What can I say, I am used to the DSLR life.

With camera talk out of the way, let's talk about what really is important.

You know these lava cakes aka the whole reason you clicked this link am I right?!

This Vegan Chocolate Molten Lava Cake is a chocolate lover's dream. The warm, fudgy, rich chocolate center is straight-up divine! All you need is one bowl & 9 easy ingredients. Woot Woot!

What you should know about this Vegan Lava Cake recipe:

  1. It is 100% Vegan (aka there is zero dairy, egg, or any animal product in here)

  2. Super sweet & quick. Time is so essential, so I wanted to make this easy vegan dessert as quick as possible. Seriously, you can make this in less than 40 minutes. hell yeah

Some Final Thoughts & Tips:

  • Refined Sugar-Free Option: Don't want to use refined sugar? No problem! Substitute out coconut sugar for the brown sugar.

  • On Storing: Store your leftover cakes in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

  • Coconut Oil instead of Vegan Butter? Answer: hell to the yeah! You may just need more or less liquid in the recipe.
