Delicious Gluten/Grain-Free Chocolate Olive Oil Cake Recipe

FullSizeRenderThis is seriously the most delicious grain/gluten-free cake I’ve made and devoured- ever. It’s moist and light and made from both two favourites: olive oil and chocolate. 🙂 It’s been adapted from Nigella Lawson’s genius, with a better kind of sugar and less of it. Best with fresh fruit from your local farmer. Yum. 🙂

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Whisk together cacao and boiling water in a measuring cup. Add the vanilla. Will be a thickish paste.
  2. In one bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda and sea salt.
  3. In another bowl, mix the coconut sugar, olive oil and eggs. Mix with an electric mixture for about 3 minutes on high till the mixture is pale yellow and thick. Reduce speed and add the cocoa mixture. Then add the almond flour mixture and mix till combined.
  4. Pour the batter into a 9-inch springform pan (I used a regular glass 9" square pan) that has been brushed with olive oil. Bake in oven pre-heated to 325 degrees for 40-45 minutes. The sides will be set and the center may look slightly damp, but stick a toothpick in the center- should come out dry. Let cool and enjoy!
