My dad is a chocoholic. End of story. He would eat just about anything if it were covered in chocolate–so we have to watch him 😀
For his birthday, we whipped up a flour-free, dairy-free, sugar-free chocolate cake. With so much “missing” from this cake (as compared to a traditional cake recipe), we were genuinely surprised as to the quality and richness of the texture. This cake is hearty enough to be eaten at a tea party, coffeehouse, or evening snack. Its rich, moist, chocolate, fudge-like qualities will romance your taste buds and make them ask for more!
Flourless Chocolate Cake
8 oz baking chocolate
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup dates
1/2 cup hot water
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp coconut oil
In a food processor, blend dates until smooth. Add cocoa powder, eggs, vanilla, and coconut oil. Melt the chocolate squares and add to mixture–be careful not to let the warm chocolate cook the eggs! Pour batter into greased round cake pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean from the center.
Serve warm or at room temperature with coffee, espresso, coconut ice cream, or just on its own!
