Dark Devine Flourless Chocolate Cake
This chocolate cake is so dense, dark and devine. My style of cake! Contains no flour, and incredibly simple ingredients. You could swap the coconut sugar for honey if you wanted. Perfect cake to make for special occasion.
INGREDIENTS1 1/2 cups raw organic cacao powder 3/4 cups raw organic coconut oil 5 large eggs 1 cup coconut sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/4 tsp salt 2 tbs water Chocolate Icing 1/2 cup raw organic cacao powder 1/2 cup raw organic coconut oil 2 tablespoons coconut cream em>1 tablespoon honey
Pre-heat oven to 150 C /300 F .
Line the bottom of cake tin with baking paper and grease with butter up the sides of tin.
Melt the coconut oil in a pan. Remove from heat, add coconut sugar and cacao and stir until well combined. Set aside.
In another large mixing bowl combine eggs, vanilla, salt, and water. Beat until smooth with egg whisk or electric whisk.
Once blended add to egg mix the chocolate mix and whisk for a further 2-3 minutes. You will notice it gets glossy and thick.
Pour the mixture in cake tin. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
Let cake cool in the pan for 30 minutes. Then run a small knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake. Leave and remove once at room temperature. Then leave cake for 6 hours at least to develop and set.
Icing Cooking Instructions
In a pan melt oil. Remove from heat add in honey and cacao powder. Stir until combined.
Then add in coconut cream, stir until it thickens up.
Allow it to cool slightly until it is at a good consistency to pour over cake. Placing in fridge for about 10 minutes will do this.
Once ready using a large spoon or knife ice the cake.
Place in fridge to allow it to set further and then serve.
