Simple Chocolate Chip Cake

This was one of those desperate times when the urge and craving hit me hard so I just threw some ingredients together and hoped for the best. I didn’t use the flax seed egg replacer so it was a bit crumbly, but I’m sure it will be perfect if you use it. I just didn’t want to wait for the flax seed mixture to set.

Simple Chocolate Chip Cake





1 TBSP ground flax seed + 1/8 tsp baking powder + 3 TBSP hot water

1 cup unprocessed sugar

1/2 cup turbinado sugar

1/2 stick butter (I used salted), melted

1/8 tsp mineral salt

1/4 cup sesame seed oil

1 1/2 cups organic flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4  cup milk (I used raw whole)

1-2 cups of chocolate chips


Mix the flax seed, 1/8 tsp baking powder and hot water in a small bowl and let set until it’s the consistency of a beaten egg. Stir occasionally.

In large bowl cream together both sugars, melted butter, salt, and sesame seed oil. Mix in flax seed mixture.

Sprinkle the flour evenly on top of butter mixture and then also sprinkle the baking soda evenly on top of the flour.

Mix on medium speed just until moistened.

Add 1/2 cup milk and beat on medium speed. You want to be able to pour it into the pan, but it also needs to be somewhat thick. If needed, add more milk, 1/4 cup at a time. You want it to just start to look slightly fluffy.

Mix in chocolate chips and pour into a 7×11 glass baking dish.

Bake at 350 for about 35-38 minutes.


I didn’t measure the milk precisely so I’m unsure of exactly how much I used, but it will be fine if there is a little more or a little less than I used.

The chocolate chips were an after thought, so that’s why they were mostly on top. I also didn’t even take time to grease or flour the baking dish. I was that impatient!

But it turned out to be a delicious cross between a cake and a moist cookie with a slight crisp top.

This is just an example of how easy it can be to throw a few things together without an actual recipe. Most times it will turn out fine. Sometimes the presentation won’t be the best, but it will still taste delicious. And the presentation isn’t really important unless you’re entertaining guests, and even then, who cares? Food was made to be eaten, it isn’t art.. well it can be, but that’s another post.
