I was looking for a chocolate cake recipe that was grain free, gluten free and lactose free the other day because we were craving chocolate cake at work.
Our computer system was down and we had nothing to do until it got fixed so we started talking cakes - chocolate cakes. Then I went searching for a recipe and found this delicious Paleo Chocolate Cake at Super Glue Mom.
The recipe specifically said the milk had to be full fat milk. I used low fat milk by mistake and it came out moist, light, soft and fluffy. It even had the volume I have been missing since going grain free!
This is not a sweet cake but delicious none the same. Light on the belly and will keep you happy all day. Definitely a keeper.
Paleo Chocolate Cake
½ cup coconut flour
¼ cup almond flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
400ml lactose free milk or any non dairy milk
½ cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat oven to 175C/350F then line a 20cm x 20cm (8x8 inch) square baking tin with baking paper.
Sift coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder into a large bowl and mix until combined.
Place milk, honey, eggs, and vanilla in a blender and mix until combined.
Slowly pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until everything is well combined. Do not over mix. The end result is like chocolate soup. Perfect!
Pour the batter into the cake tin and bake for 50 minutes.
Allow to cool before removing from tin. Then serve and enjoy.
