Celebration Chocolate Cake
March 5, 2013

This has quickly become one of our family favourites and the kids’ cake of choice for most special occasions.  It’s gluten free, it can be dairy free if you swap the butter for oil with a high heat point (or smoke point) and importantly it’s relatively… guilt free.   Plus this recipe can easily work as cupcakes for school if need be, just cook them for approx. 25 minutes only and freeze well too!

Celebration Chocolate Cake
Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 cup butter (or almond oil or use a mix of butter and coconut oil)
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup or preferred sweetener (if using rapadura sugar, ¾ cup is enough)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

1.      In a bowl, combine flour, cacao, salt and baking soda

2.      In a large bowl, using an electric hand held blender, blend eggs, oil, sweetener and vanilla

3.      Add dry ingredients into large bowl and continue to blend

4.      Oil a 25cm cake tin with butter

5.      Pour batter into the pan and bake at 180 degrees for 35-40 minutes

6.      Remove from oven, allowing to cool completely then remove from the cake tin

7.      Ice with your preferred icing or a chocolate ganache and serve

 

Chocolate Ganache

What:

  • 100g dark chocolate (the higher % of cacao the better. I usually use 75%)
  • 80 g cream

How:

  1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan or use a double broiler  Once the chocolate is melted, stir in the cream
  2. Allow the chocolate to cool a little and finish off the cake
