Naked Chocolate Cake
Here’s my favourite recipe for a delicious one bowl chocolate cake that is full of superfoods and antioxidants. The recipe is from both my bestselling cookbooks Healthy Baking and Purely Delicious and can be enjoyed by everyone – whether you’re gluten free, dairy free, paleo or just love eating chocolate, this cake is for you!
What’s great about it
Cocoa is one of the highest known antioxidant whole foods on the planet. Rich in magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, riboflavin and essential micronutrients for health and vitality. Olive Oil is my number-one favourite and I use it liberally in all types of cooking including baking. This oil is beautiful-tasting and marries perfectly with chocolate. Coconut flour is gluten-free and nut-free so it’s kind to sensitive digestive systems. It’s a little difficult to bake for beginners, but once your perfect your ratio of flour to liquid – it’s smooth sailing. Coconut flour also doesn’t give you that high blood sugar / insulin spike that you can often get with refined white flours.
