The Best Chocolate Cake Ever

31 Jan

I baked this yesterday and I couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you!!

Dark Chocolate Coconut Cake from

Serves 12

100g dark chocolate (I used 85%) – chopped

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tbs coconut oil/butter

1/2 cup boiling water

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 cup lite coconut milk

2 eggs

85g silken tofu

3 tbs sugar free maple syrup (or honey)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp coconut extract

1&1/4 cup oat flour

7 serves Stevia

1/2 cup chocolate whey powder

3 tbs arrowroot starch (or cornstarch/cornflour)

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and spray the pan of choice with nonstick spray (I used a bundt pan but you could use a cake pan or make muffins)

In a large bowl, stir together the chocolate, cocoa powder and coconut oil

In a blender, puree the applesauce, coconut milk, eggs, tofu, maple syrup and extracts until smooth

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sweetener, protein, starch, baking soda, baking powder and salt

Pour the boiling water into the bowl with the chopped chocolate, cocoa powder and coconut oil, and stir until smooth (it should resemble a thick chocolate sauce). Stir in the blender mixture

Add the dry to wet and gently fold together. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the surface of the cake is firm to touch and a toothpick comes out clean

If you wish you can top this with a health icing – such as a mixture of natural yoghurt + protein powder – or you can just eat it by itself, which I think I’ll do next time because it’s really delicious!! Enjoy 🙂
