The Best Paleo Chocolate Cake. Ever.

Decadent, moist, chocolatey, and a healthier alternative! This chocolate cake is one of the best ways to end your meal. A great thing about this dessert is aside from the fact that it’s easy to make, it tastes so good you wouldn’t believe this treat is actually guilt-free. This chocolate cake is high in fiber, rich in protein, vitamin C, B6, thiamine, and riboflavin.

Ingredients

For the Moist Chocolate Cake

3/8 c melted coconut oil

3/4 c honey or maple syrup

5/8 c cocoa powder

3 cage-free eggs

3/4 c almond milk (you can also use coconut milk or rice milk)

3/4 c coconut flour

For the Chocolate Frosting

  3. Keep it inside a closed container and chill.

For the Moist Chocolate Cake

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 355 degrees Fahrenheit and grease 3 6-inch round cake pans with coconut oil. Line the bottom of each pan with baking paper.
  2. In a bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, honey (or maple syrup), and cocoa powder. Whisk until the mixture resembles thick, melted chocolate.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition.
  4. Add the almond milk and whisk until the mixture is smooth and dense (like hot chocolate).
  5. Sift the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add them to the chocolate mixture. Mix until the batter is smooth.
  6. Divide the cake batter evenly between the three baking pans. Smooth out the tops with a spatula.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until the cake tester (or toothpick) comes out clean.
  8. Let it cool.
  9. Grab your favorite round plate or cake stand and place one of the three round cakes on it. Evenly spread out a third of the frosting on top of the first layer and then add the second cake on top. Spread another coating of frosting and then add the last cake layer. Top with more frosting.
