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. Preheat the oven to 180 Deg C.
  2. Grease a 8-inch square cake pan with butter and flour.
  3. Sift together the Coconut flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. Check to make sure there are no lumps in the dark brown sugar or else just sift or break it using a fork.
  5. In a separate bowl melt the butter.
  6. Once melted add in the sifted cocoa powder.
  7. Mix well until combined. Let the mixture cool slightly.
  8. In a separate bowl whisk in the egg, sugar and vanilla, until light and fluffy. (1-2 mins).
