Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake

This. Cake. I think I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. But, I will say I ate 3 pieces. πŸ˜‰

Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons cacao powder (special dark) (or more regular cocoa)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350* F. Grease the inside of a 8 or 9″ square pan. You could probably make it in a circle pan too. Make 2, and layer them! Oh, the possibilities! Mix all the dry ingredients well; sifting if necessary to remove any lumps. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients well. (I used medium eggs, but because the batter is so thick, I would recommend large eggs.) Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until all combined. As mentioned, it will be quick thick. You will need to spread it into the pan and the top may look “lumpy” or uneven. Bake for 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Don’t worry if it comes out looking “lumpy” too; it gets icing on it!

Chocolate Ganache Frosting
2 and 1/2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate (2.5 ounces)
1/2 cup milk of choice (unsweetened almond or coconut, or cows) I used raw cow milk.
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Melt the chocolate with the milk in a small pan over low to medium heat.Stir constantly till the chocolate is melted, then add coconut sugar and keep stirring until it has dissolved. Remove from heat add vanilla extract. Pour on the cake while still warm, like ganache, or wait for it to cool and thicken and spread it like frosting.

  1. Can I use something other than almond flour? Was already in town. Can’t go back. I have tapioca flour, coconut flour, all purpose flour (all gluten free).

  2. Oooh i made something very similar a few months ago, and it was delicious! Loved seeing how you had a different take on it. I’m definitely making this! thanks for sharing!
