This is an ideal treat for those special occasions!

Chocolate Cake

  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 5 medium eggs (seperated)
  • ½ cup coconut oil or grass-fed ghee (melted)
  • ½ cup coconut cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 4 Tbsp granulated sweetener
  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Additional grass-fed butter, ghee, or coconut oil (for greasing)

Chocolate Coconut Cream Glaze

  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 1 Tbsp ghee or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp erythritol / xylitol or roughly 10 drops of liquid stevia
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 20cm metal cake pan with butter, ghee, or coconut oil.

  2. Whisk egg whites until they develop a foamy consistency.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix all remaining chocolate cake ingredients. Then slowly fold egg whites into the batter.
  4. Pour batter into cake pan. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  5. While cake cools, prepare glaze. In a saucepan on low heat, add all glaze ingredients and whisk continuously to combine.
  6. Drizzle over the cake. Serve chocolate cake warm, or store covered on your counter or in the refrigerator (icing will harden).
