Even though all of our desserts are made without flour, we wanted to make a cake to resemble the traditional flourless chocolate cake. I love how light and spongey flourless cakes are, and I LOVE how rich and chocolatey this one is.

We have used organic, raw honey as a sweetener for this flourless chocolate cake. We find the quantity suggested in the recipe provides ample sweetness (we sometimes use only 1/4 cup) but you can adjust according to desired sweetness level.

For those of you with nut intolerances, flaxseed meal is a great substitute for almond meal, which would make this a nut-free dessert… And we know how hard they are to come across. We are currently working to create more nut-free variations of our recipes, so stay tuned!

Serves 8.

Ingredients

1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup cacao powder1 tsp baking powder1/4 cup coconut oil, melted1/2 cup honey1/2 cup boiling water1 tsp vanilla bean paste3 organic eggs (separated)1 tbsp chia seeds

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Once combined, add in melted coconut oil, honey, water, vanilla bean paste, chia seeds and egg yolks and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
  4. Beat egg whites until firm peaks form. Gently fold into the mixture.
  5. Pour into a greased and lined circular baking tin.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for approx. 20 minutes.
  7. Turn onto a cooling rack and leave to cool for a few minutes.
  8. Serve with fresh raspberries, coconut yogurt or you can make your own chocolate coyo frosting simply by mixing a few tablespoons of cacao powder with 1 cup coconut yoghurt.

We recommend serving our flourless chocolate cake with raspberry coulis. The sweetness of the berries is the perfect complement to the subtle bitterness of the dark chocolate.
