1 Bowl Vegan Salted Tahini Chocolate Cake










Hello & Happy Thursday!!







When It comes to cake, everyone likes chocolate!



Believe it or not I’m not big on chocolate. I like it in a few things, but honestly it’s not the first thing that I crave. However, when I do chocolate I always add coffee as it further enhances the flavor. Did you know those at tahini offers the same benefits? By just adding a little bit of tahini you can further enhance the chocolate flavor profile and even add notes of salt.


I know what you’re thinking, I like tahini in my hummus, I’ll pass having it in my cake. I felt the same way until I tried it! We recently did tahini chocolate chip cookies and all I could think was, wow, why did I wait so long? lol


Having such a good result with the cookies, I knew we had to explore other concepts. Just like that the vegan Salted Tahini Chocolate Cake was born! If you know me, you know that I love and effort list sheet cake. So it was a no-brainer to produce a seamless one bowl option.






What’s great about this cake? Everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, can be thrown together in one bowl, doesn’t even need a flax egg, has notes of tahini, no it’s of espresso, buttery soft, features tahini butter cream, it’s perfect for any season, great for entertaining, and has aesthetic appeal!

  1. I tried this cake, and it’s very delicious! Yummy!
    Vegans and non vegans equally loved it.
    Only it turned out a little dry.
    Any ideas why?
    I added almonds and cocoa nibs to the dough.

    1. Hi Stefanie, it could be from over packing your measuring cup with too much flour, which left you with more dry texture.
