I am sure you are asking what is a clean chocolate cake. Well it is one without flour, sugar and dairy. Best of all it is super delicious.
A friend was having a dinner party and I decided to make a cake. I found this recipe and adapted it a bit. This cake doesn't rise much at all. It's almost like a large chocolate pancake but it is still very satisfying. Nice and healthy and easy on the belly. Just how all good food should be.
Clean Chocolate Cake
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
Preheat oven to 160C.
Combine the cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl.
In another medium sized bowl beat all the eggs together then add honey, vanilla and coconut oil and mix until well combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until all ingredients are well combined. Just note it is a runny batter.
Spoon into a small 15 - 20 cm baking tin that is lined with baking paper.
Bake for 40 minutes or until cooked through.
Remove from the oven. Cool for a few minutes in the tin then move onto a cooling rack and allow to cool before you add chocolate icing.
300 g chocolate
150 ml coconut milk
Melt the chocolate either in the microwave or on a double boiler. Stir in the coconut milk and mix until combined so the consistency is nice and smooth. Then ice cake. I also grated some chocolate on top.It just looked like it needed something more.
