When I saw this Chocolate Cake recipe I thought no way is it going to work. I was so intrigued that I had to try it.
Of course I changed it around as I didn't have all the ingredients and am not a big fan of coconut flour. It has a grainy texture which I don't really like but coconut flour does have many health benefits so thought I would include some of it. You can use either coconut flour or almond or just go half/half like I have.
The ingredients are very healthy and minimal but they do make a delicious cake. I have avoided making cakes with strange ingredients like dates or beetroot or avocado but though it time to try as I am only new to the wheat free diet.
I was pleasantly surprised as it is delicious. You might think it's raw when sliced but that is its consistency it is just fudgy so fear not.
This is a quick, simple, easy recipe. I recommend you try it. Let me know how you go.
Fudgy Date Chocolate CakeIngredients
4 Midjool dates
½ cup water
2 tablespoons almond flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
3 tablespoons cocoa
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
Cut the dates into small pieces, cover with 1/2 cup of water and place in microwave for 2 minutes. Let them soak, soften and cool.
Preheat oven then grease and line a small cake tin. I used a loaf pan 25cm by 14cm end to end. Sounds large but is actually small.
Mix all the ingredients together in a food processor then pour into tin.
Bake for 30-40 minutes at 180C.
Cool on a wire rack then slice and serve.
