Best Eggless Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough Pot

If you’re looking for a good eggless chocolate-chip cookie, your search stops here with the best eggless chocolate-chip cookie dough pot!

Truth be told I had a tough time when it came to titling this recipe, as it can go by so many names from an eggless cookie dough pot to a deep dish chocolate-chip cookie. It’s a gorgeous little number which is exactly as delicious as it sounds like too: cookie dough baked in a little ramekin, small deep dish or even in a mini skillet. With softly-crisp, golden edges encircling a gloriously-gooey centre, this cookie pot is best diligently spooned through with a scoop of ice cream on top!

To make this recipe, you will require a small ramekin; I have used one which is 3-inches in diameter and 2-inches tall. Alternatively, you could simply bake the cookie dough in a mini skillet/ pie dish. Note that this will require a longer baking time and as Nigella herself points out in the original version of her classic chocolate-chip cookie dough pots, “but the ramekins give you a better goo-to-crust ratio, and that’s what these are all about.”

Servings 1


  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar + 1 tbsp caster sugar (alternatively, you can use 2 tbsp caster sugar if you prefer)
  • 2 tsp milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • chocolate chips (measured with your soul)
  • pinch of salt (omit if using salted butter)


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Melt the butter.
  • Whisk the sugars into the melted butter.
  • Stir in milk and vanilla extract.
  • Sift the flour, baking soda and salt into the same bowl. Gently fold to combine.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Scrape the cookie dough out into a small ramekin (I used a ramekin with a 3" diameter and 2" height. Alternatively you can also use a small skillet or deep dish). Press a small chocolate square on top (optional)
  • Bake the cookie for 7-9 minutes until the edges have puffed, turning golden-brown, but the centre is still soft. It's important not to over-bake this, if you want the inside to still be gooey!
  • Let the cookie pot cool down on a wire rack before serving with a scoop of ice cream.
