Chocolate Olive Oil Cake
Smooth and sophisticated my chocolate cake is moist and decadent and rich in antioxidants and heart healthy essential fatty acids that promote good health. This flourless chocolate cake takes just a few minutes to mix up and it’s perfect for impromptu dinner parties, picnics or just because you feel like some lush chocolate therapy. Serve topped with ganache or top generously with my healthy chocolate mousse.
What’s great about it
Cocoa is one of the highest known antioxidant foods on the planet. Rich in magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, riboflavin and essential micronutrients for health and vitality. The high flavonoid content of cocoa has been scientifically linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Cocoa contains theobromine that boost endorphins and give you that pleasurable sensation similar to the high people get after exercise.
I adore the versatility of olive oil. It is a lovely heat-stable and all-purpose oil that’s great for most cooking purposes including sautéing and baking, as well as making the most delicious dressings.
