Courgette chocolate cake, quick microwave chocolate cake, apple sauce chocolate cake... Whether from a chef or an amateur blogger, you'll find new recipes for chocolate cakes every day.

If you're looking for a healthier and more balanced option, we've got just the thing: a vegan, no-bake, gluten-free cake!

A chocolate cake with only three ingredients

Created by food blogger and Youtuber David Davidov (@thecookingfoodie), this recipe is appealing because of its low quantity of ingredients and its speed of execution. It takes only ten minutes to make, but you'll need to wait at least four hours before you can eat the cake.

At a time when we are increasingly careful about what we put on our plates, The Cooking Foodie's minimalist recipe not only seems to tick all the boxes, but it is also ultra-fast:

  • Vegan
  • Gluten-free
  • Butter-free
  • Flour-free
  • Egg-free
  • Lactose-free
  • No baking

Don't worry, it's still delicious thanks to the use of coconut milk, which adds creaminess and consistency to the cake. Without sugar and with oatmeal as flour, it is a true diet ally that you can eat without any guilt. Let's get cooking!
