Single Serving Cookie Cake (Reduced Fat, Vegan & Whole Wheat)

It’s time for you to enjoy your cookie cake.

It’s literally a cake… that tastes surprisingly like a giant cookie. 

Its unfortunate that my brain tends to work in such an unfashionable manner. A cookie cake that comes a tad too late. My apologies.

A cookie cake for you and you only! The recipe can be ‘bent’ to fit your liking. If you like fluffy cakes (as seen in the pictures), up the baking powder to 1/4 teaspoon. For a chewier and denser cookie cake, follow the recipe.

Ingredients

1/3 cup (42g) whole wheat flour
a little less than 1/10 tsp baking powder (about a big pinch) make sure the amounts are substantial
a little less than 1/20 tsp baking soda (about a small pinch) make sure the amounts are substantial
small pinch salt
4 tsp(20g) cold reduced fat margarine, room temperature
1 tbsp + 1/3 tsp (15g) dark brown sugar
4/5 tbsp (10g) sugar
1 tbsp applesauce
1/3 tsp pure vanilla extract

.

Freeze, than chop into small chunks
2 tsp maple syrup
2 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp water

OR 

use 20g semi- sweet chocolate chips instead

.

.

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F/180°C. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter and sugars in another bowl until barely combined with a fork. Add vanilla and applesauce, mixing until combined. Mix in dry ingredients and maple-syrup-cocoa-powder chunks . You should have a very stiff, lightly sticky dough. If needed, add another teaspoon of flour.

Spread mixture in mould. Bake for 17-22 minutes. Take the cookie-cakes out of the oven before you think they look done, when the outsides are lightly browned and the insides are mostly done. Cool completely and cut into wedges.

.
*Note: knead/mix as little as you can.

Oh yes! Cookie cake! You know you want it!

To add-on quickly, I did my FIRST Daring Bakers Challenge! My sourdough came out to dense (I was too tired to let it rise longer… baked it at 2am)

.

.

Tasted pretty good though! I ate it with some maple-syrup-peanut-butter (better than PB which I’m not too big a fan of)

Mix:

  • maple syrup
  • peanut butter
  • water
till desired consistency and sweetness achieved. Easy peasy!
