Ingredients – serves 10 portions

Chocolate Cake

  • 390g whole wheat flour
  • 165g dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 200g brown sugar
  • 720ml almond milk
  • 240ml melted coconut oil
  • 360ml applesauce
  • 360ml maple syrup
  • 15ml apple cider vinegar
  • 15ml vanilla extract
  • 13g baking soda
  • 6g baking powder
  • 2g salt

Chocolate sauce

  • 850g full-fat coconut milk
  • 720g melted dairy-free dark chocolate
  • 60ml melted coconut oil
  • 400g brown sugar
  • Berries for garnish
  • Apricot glaze for garnish berries (optional)

 

Methodology – Preheat the oven to 350°F

  • Heat the coconut milk on the stove (do not boil!) and add the dark chocolate to melt.
  • Add the coconut oil and brown sugar. Stir until smooth.
  • Transfer to bowl or Tupperware and refrigerate for 8 hrs or overnight for best results.
  • In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients (whole wheat flour, dark chocolate cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt). Whisk to combine.
  • In a separate large bowl, add the wet ingredients and whisk to combine (almond milk, coconut oil, applesauce, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract).
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredient a little at a time, while folding mixture with a spatula until combined.
  • Pour the batter into a cake pan, greased with coconut oil, and bake for 45 – 55 minutes. Check doneness with a toothpick or knife near the end of baking time, until it comes out almost entirely clean. Cool down the cake completely.
  • Take out chocolate sauce from the fridge and stir well. It should be thick and smooth.
  • Spread sauce evenly over the entire cake. Add berries of choice on top and brush with apricot glaze if available.
