Vegan Chocolate Pudding Cake with Salted Caramel Sauce for One {Paleo}

Chocolate pudding cake. With salted caramel.

Do I really need to say anything else?

That question was rhetorical, and the answer was “no,” but everyone knows I’m going to say something anyway. So as well as being rhetorical my question was also redundant. I just wasted 30 seconds of your life. You are welcome.

Anyway, salted caramel is everywhere at the moment. Every little cafe and restaurant seems to have another salted caramel drink or dessert to tempt the salty-sweets lover.

And I have to confess… I don’t mind one bit. Salted caramel is so incredibly incredible that I am more than happy for it to be a part of my life.


This luscious little cake is the perfect size for a taste-bud tingling “me party.” If you don’t know what I mean by a “me party” then you simply must watch this video.

Now that you have been fully educated, it’s back to the cake.

1 tsp coconut oil, melted

2 tsp gula melaka (coconut sugar) syrup, or other preferred liquid sweetener

Generous pinch of sea salt


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. If it is not the consistency or flavour you desire, continue to add coconut flour for thickness/sweetener for runniness/salt for saltiness.

  1. Oh my! I really appreciate anything that is a single serving creation. If I make an entire cake and there’s no one around to stop me, I will eat the whole thing. I’m gonna pretend with this one that as I make it I burn at least have of the calories taken in in simple preparation. This looks amazing!


  2. This looks AMAZING and I love that it’s for one, since I am the only one eating a plant based diet in my family. I am pinning this to my vegan desserts board and planning on making it soon. Thanks so much for sharing!
