Best Eggless Chocolate Dessert Recipes
Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding
A rich pudding with a warm molten centre, moist cakey texture and a liquid pool of chocolate floating underneath! Yes, it’s safe to say that this recipe – shared by regular contributor and fifteen-year old baker, Elisha Parikh (also more famously known as @ElitheBaker) – is pure magic!
Chocolate & Caramel Poke Cake
What’s a poke cake, I hear you ask? It’s exactly what it sounds like. A cake in which you poke holes after baking, before pouring in a liquid or filling to add a colourful boost of flavours and textures! Curated by Bianca Manik – Le Cordon Bleu-trained pastry chef and founder of Blanchette patisserie – this recipe takes a classic chocolate cake as the base, propping it up with a luxurious layer of caramel!
Chocolate & Strawberry Cheesecake
Another eggless recipe from Bianca, this time for a classic chocolate cheesecake elevated by fabulously-fresh strawberries, drizzled with yet more chocolate!
Eggless Chocolate Lava Cake
Molten chocolate cakes typically rely on eggs for structure and richness. However, with a bit of tinkering and a dash of alchemy, you can recreate the “lava” effect with just one bowl and a handful of pantry staples
No-Bake Eggless Chocolate Dessert Recipes
Dark Chocolate & Nutella Tart
Curated by writer-turned-chef Jeena J Billimoria, this no-bake tart comes together with a chocolatey-crust holding up a richly-smooth Nutella dark chocolate ganache garnished by gold leaf or chopped hazelnuts. It’s a simple dessert, but one which will never fail to impress even the most discerning of guests.
Chocolate Fridge Cake
Sweet, salty and crumbly bars layered with crushed biscuits coated with melted chocolate and honey – this no-bake cake is as quintessentially British as it gets. So much so, that it was chosen by Prince William as his Groom’s Cake for The Royal Wedding. Yes, really.
Vegan Dark Chocolate Pudding
If you’re looking for a quick and a ridiculously-easy recipe for a dark chocolate dessert that is: (a) vegan; (b) free of refined sugar; (c) healthy(ish); and (d) devillishly-decadent – your search stops here with this eggless dark chocolate pudding.
Pumpkin-spice pots de crème
Translating to “pots of cream” or “pots of custard” in French, these little numbers are as decadent as their name would suggest! However, this recipe from Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef and founder of the dessert kitchen Crumbilicious, Sanah Ahuja, deftly balances the creamy intensity of the chocolate with the nutty crunch of walnut crumble and a cosy pinch of homemade pumpkin-spice.
Greek Yogurt Dark Chocolate Mousse
For a lighter alternative, have a gander at this no-cook mousse starring homemade Greek yogurt which adds a tangy tartness balanced by bittersweet dark chocolate and a touch of Nutella!
Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Fudge
Is there anything more chocolatey than good ole fashioned fudge? Made with just a few humble ingredients – including a can of condensed milk – you can layer the fudge with a biscuity crust for texture!
eggless Chocolate brownie Recipes
Classic Chocolate & Nutella Brownies
Everyone needs a go-to brownie recipe. I have several, including these eggless classics. Which are you going to bake a batch of first? Classic chocolate or Nutella?
Fudgy Vegan Dark Chocolate Salted Brownies
These are not just eggless brownies. These are vegan too. Made entirely from pantry staples, the great thing about this recipe from Copper + Cloves is that it features all plant-based ingredients, with no processed flour or sugars. They are also gluten-free and vegan, presenting the opportunity to learn healthy baking skills such as making flour out of oats and almonds; and making an “egg” out of flaxseeds (one of the best substitutes for eggless baking!).
