I have been (more or less) following a paleo diet since November.
Simply speaking, paleo means no grains = no wheat, corn, oats, pasta, rice. So regular cake is not really on the menu!
This is not my first attempt at paleo cake, but it is the most successful so I thought I would share with you.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and grease and line an 8 inch baking tin.
Melt 100g butter (or you could use coconut oil if you wanted to go dairy free) and stir in 75g dark chocolate until it melts. Leave to cool.
Whisk 4 eggs with 50g honey until they are creamy and well aerated.
Pour the cooled chocolate butter mixture in slowly, while whisking all the time.
Mix 100g ground almonds with 40g coconut flour and a teaspoon baking powder. Fold this dry mix into the wet mix.
Pour batter into cake tin and bake for approximately 30 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean.
Allow to cool, then if you like, drizzle with some more melted dark chocolate.
Enjoy! But not too much, this is a treat, even if it is grain free!
