Easy eggless double chocolate cake + mascarpone ice cream recipe


I wanted to make a quick vegan chocolate cake and this one was in the oven in less than 15 minutes! It came out super moist, rich, and not too sweet (I can't stand sickeningly sweet desserts!) The cake also paired wonderfully with my favorite homemade ice cream recipe. The ice cream is not vegan obviously because it uses mascarpone cheese, but it is eggless. Without further ado, here are the recipes:

Easy Eggless Double Chocolate Cake (modified from this recipe)

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup turbinado sugar
1/3 cup cacao powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 cup water
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cacao powder, baking soda, sugar and salt. Make three little wells in the dry mixture spaced evenly apart. Pour the vanilla into one well, the vinegar in another, and the oil into the third. Pour water over everything and mix well. Add in the chocolate chips and pour into a greased 8x8" pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. 

Homemade Mascarpone Ice Cream

8 oz. container of mascarpone cheese
1 1/2 cups So Delicious coconut milk (I've also used vanilla hemp milk with good results)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup maple syrup (or more if you prefer sweeter ice cream)
pinch of salt

Add mascarpone to a mixing bowl (I use a 32 oz. measuring cup because it pours easier). Slowly wisk in the coconut milk a little at a time. Add in remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Pour into your ice cream maker (I have this model and LOVE it) and churn according to your machine's directions. Yum!

This is my absolute favorite homemade ice cream recipe, I've made it at least half a dozen times this summer alone. It can also be modified with your favorite add ins, so far I've tried adding raw cacao powder, lemon juice, and cinnamon (not at the same time haha, but on separate occasions). 

Hope you enjoy!!
