Prep Time :8 minutes
Cook Time :30 minutes
Total Time :38 minutes
Servings: 20


  • Medium size square baking pan


  • cups/150 grams oat flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 2 heaping tablespoons cacao powder , dissolved in 1 cup boiling water
  • ½ cup sugar substitute, such as Stevia or regular sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda


  • 2.5 ounces/70 grams a little over half a package sugar-free chocolate/other chocolate of your choice
  • cup oat milk (or your preferred milk)


  • Preheat the oven to 355°F (180°C).
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs and the sugar substitute until well combined. Dissolve 2 tablespoons of cacao powder in the boiling water and add it to the bowl, along with the oil. Mix everything together. Add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda) and mix until the batter is smooth and uniform.
  • Transfer the batter to a greased medium size square baking pan (approximately 9×9 inches or 8×8 inches) and bake for about 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick to ensure it's done.
  • Prepare the ganache by melting the chocolate with the milk in a saucepan or the microwave (I melted it in a saucepan). Once the cake is done, use a fork to make holes on the surface (this allows the ganache to seep inside and make the cake moister), then pour the melted ganache over the cake.

How do I know when this fluffy chocolate cake is done baking?

To determine if this light fluffy chocolate cake is fully baked, perform the toothpick test. Insert a toothpick or cake tester into the center of the cake – if it emerges with minimal crumbs or comes out clean, the cake is done. Avoid over-baking, as it could lead to a dry texture. Keep an eye on the edges; they should be slightly golden, and the cake should spring back when gently touched. Trusting these visual and tactile cues ensures your cake is perfectly baked and ready to be enjoyed.

Can I freeze slices of this light and fluffy chocolate cake?

Certainly! You can freeze cake slices for later enjoyment. Place the slices in an airtight container or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap. When you’re ready to indulge, allow the slices to thaw at room temperature or use the microwave at low power. Freezing preserves the cake’s flavor and texture, offering a delightful treat whenever you desire.

Can I add additional toppings to the ganache, like nuts or fruit?

Absolutely, you can elevate this fluffy chocolate cake by adding chopped nuts, fresh fruit, or even drizzles of caramel are fantastic choices. Sprinkle them over the ganache before it sets for an enticing visual appeal and enhanced flavor.

Can I double the recipe to make a larger cake?

Certainly, expanding the recipe is possible by doubling the ingredients for a larger cake. However, ensure you adjust the baking time, usually extending it slightly to accommodate the increased volume. Keep an eye on the cake’s appearance and utilize the toothpick test to confirm doneness. Adapting the cooking time, perhaps by an additional 5 to 10 minutes, ensures your larger creation is evenly baked and maintains the delightful taste and texture you expect from the original recipe.
