Coconut Flour Chocolate Cake

This Coconut Flour Chocolate Cake Recipe is quick and easy to prepare and makes a decadent flourless baked treat to make and enjoy for a birthday, special occasion or just when you’re craving cake.

To make the flourless chocolate cake is simple, start by ensuring your butter is softened. I tend to take it out of the fridge first thing in the morning and then checking on it every couple of hours until it is soft and ready to easily whisk. 

Once your butter is soft, it’s time to get baking. Pop the oven on to preheat, line and grease a round baking tin and then get cooking. 

Add the stevia, eggs, cream, vanilla and salt to the softened butter and beat until completely smooth. Then, it’s just a matter of beating in the cocoa powder and coconut flour until you have a smooth cake batter. 

You may not think that a quarter of a cup of coconut flour will be enough – but you’ll soon see that it is. The volume of coconut flour and cocoa powder creates the perfect dense chocolate cake that’s not as dry as low carb cakes often are.

Pour the chocolate cake batter into the prepared cake tin and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until cooked through. Then, remove it from the heat and allow to cool completely.

To make the chocolate frosting, melt together chocolate, butter, cream and stevia. Allow the frosting to cool slightly to thicken and then drench the cooled cake in the chocolate river. (If you’d like to use low carb friendly chocolate in the frosting, then here are the best keto chocolate bar brands to choose from.)

This is quite a dark chocolate cake, so feel free to up the stevia to 1/2 cup (or more) if you’d prefer a sweeter cake. Same goes for the frosting – you may prefer it sweeter, so add as much until it’s sweet to your tastes. 

As mentioned, you may be surprised that only 1/4 of a cup of coconut flour is needed, but you’ll find that it’s the perfect amount, resulting in a cake that’s moist, yet firm, without having a strong and overpowering taste of coconut.
