  • Author: Elika
  • Yield: 9 inch cake 1x



150 ml coconut oil (plus more to grease cake tin)

50 gm good quality cocoa powder

125 ml boiled water

2 tsp vanilla extract

150 gm almond flour

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 pinch of salt

100 ml maple syrup

3 flax eggs (1 flax egg = 1 tbsp of ground flax & 3 tbsp of water)


  • Preheat oven to 170oc/150oc fan oven & grease a 9inch springform tin with some of the oil, line the base of the cake tin with baking paper
  • Measure & sift the cocoa powder into a bowl & whisk in the boiling water to make a runny paste
  • Add the vanilla extract and leave aside to cool
  • Taking a new bowl combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda & salt
  • In a food processor, use the paddle attachment (or use a bowl & hand whisk), beat the flax eggs, oil & maple syrup to a thick pale cream
  • Turn down the speed & add the cocoa paste, continuing to whisk
  • Scrape down the sides and continue whisking but adding the flour mixture
  • Once the flour is fully combined, scrape all contents into the prepared tin
  • Bake for 40 minutes until the sides are set and the centre slightly damp
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack and then use a spatula to remove from tin to slice & serve


Feel free to try alternative flours adjusting the quantity accordingly, I’ve made this using 30g of teff flour an ancient gluten-free nutty like grain
