What's better than cake? Chocolate cake, of course. Resistance is futile, you've been warned. We found the best ones in Singapore!

When the craving hits, you’ll find us at these spots.
Best chocolate cakes in Singapore
1. The Fabulous Baker Boy
It’s easy to look past the humble chocolate cake with creations like Ab Fab Red Velvet and Ann’s Burnt Cheesecake. But trust us, there’s a reason why people say you can’t go wrong with classics. The Fabulous Baker Boy’s version is made with Valrhona and one bite will send you to chocolate nirvana. It’s light, rich (70% cacao) and highly addictive!

2. Awfully Chocolate
The moniker is a dead giveaway, innit? Touted as the cake that started it all – it’s been the dessert store’s bestseller for 20 years – the signature All Chocolate Cake spotlights chocolate in its full glory. No cream in sight, just decadent layers of chocolate layered between sponge cake. But if you want a little extra razzle-dazzle, it also comes in flavours of banana or rum and cherry.
Awfully Chocolate, multiple locations including VivoCity and Raffles City
3. Chocolate Origin
Chocolate Origin lures you in with its decadent chocolate creations, from bars to truffles to gelato. Its chocolate cake is made of ganache between layers of sponges and finished with a satisfying chocolate glaze. But if you’re a purist at heart, have the dark chocolate variation.

What’s as good as or even better than PS.Cafe’s truffle fries? Well, it has to be the Double Chocolate Blackout Cake. This sinful masterpiece comprises two moist chocolate cakes smothered in generous dark chocolate ganache. Calories? We don’t know her.

5. Fluff Bakery
We know Fluff Bakery is synonymous with cupcakes, but hear us out. Named The Man Cake, this chocolate cake is made with Nutella, filled with chocolate crumbs, covered in chocolate ganache and topped with chocolate crumbs and dark chocolate pop rocks. Essentially a chocolate lover’s dream, if you ask us.

6. Laurent Bernard Chocolatier
Steeped in French craftsmanship and founded by chocolate maestro Laurent Bernard, this one-stop chocolate shop has been putting out magnificent cocoa delights since 2006. However, our eyes are on the 3 Chocolate Cake. This beaut features milk and dark chocolate mousse, chocolate and vanilla cremeux, and dark chocolate sponge a la brownies.

7. Chalk Farm
Chalk Farm’s iteration of the chocolate cake is extra luscious. The secret? Don’t be shocked – it’s olive oil. The proof is in the pudding, or in this case, the batter. Olive oil actually lends a fruity flavour to the rich chocolate. For something boozy, the chocolate Guinness cake… takes the cake. Plus, it comes with a lush cream cheese filling and topping.
Chalk Farm, multiple locations including Paragon and Parkway Parade
8. Sunday Folks
Sunday Folks is what sweet dreams are made of. Aside from its tempting waffles and soft serve combo, the cakes are pretty impressive. That includes the rich cognac chocolate ganache cake. Each layer is doused in cognac and slathered with a decadent 56% cacao cognac ganache frosting. Sugar and booze —what’s not to love?
Sunday Folks, #01-52, Chip Bee Gardens, 44 Jalan Merah Saga, Singapore 278116
9. Lavo Singapore
Lavo’s location isn’t the only thing that’s elevated. Enter its 20-layer chocolate cake. Yes, you read that right! Devil’s food cake and peanut butter mascarpone are stacked on top of one another to create this sinful treat. So forget about the calories and just dig right in. No regrets!
Lavo Singapore, Level 57, Marina Bay Sands, Tower 1, 10 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018956
10. Plain Vanilla
Keep it simple with Plain Vanilla’s flourless chocolate cake. These folks only use eggs, butter, sugar and 73% Belgian dark chocolate. The result? A delicate but rich chocolate cake – one of the best in Singapore. It’s a great choice for anyone who prefers more fudge than cake when it comes to this classic dessert.
Plain Vanilla, multiple locations including Tiong Bahru and Cluny Court
