Equipment

  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 3/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar (One can use white sugar)
  • 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 6 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 6 Large Eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 Deg C.
  • Grease a 8-inch square cake pan with butter and flour.
  • Sift together the Coconut flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Check to make sure there are no lumps in the dark brown sugar or else just sift or break it using a fork.
  • In a separate bowl melt the butter.
  • Once melted add in the sifted cocoa powder.
  • Mix well until combined. Let the mixture cool slightly.
  • In a separate bowl whisk in the egg, sugar and vanilla, until light and fluffy. (1-2 mins).
  • Now add in the cooled or slightly warm cocoa butter mixture. If you add it too hot, the eggs will start cooking immediately.
  • Add in the sifted coconut flour, baking powder and salt mixture. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Let it rest for 10 minutes. This helps in coconut flour absorbing the liquids.
  • Bake the cake into a preheated oven for 25-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake onto a wire rack after 30 minutes.
  • Let it cool completely. Enjoy with a cup of dark coffee.

  • Oven time varies for baking , do keep an eye after 25 minutes.
  • Be sue to use gluten free cocoa powder, if you are allergic to gluten.
