chocolate cake/ GF and grain free

quick tasty and satisfies a gluten free, grain free urge for chocolate

I found this recipe here

However I cooked it in a slightly narrower pan and forgot the vanilla!

  1. 4 large pastured eggs
  2. 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  3. 1/4- 1/3 cup maple syrup (I used the 1/3)
  4. 1/3 cup extra virgin coconut oil
  5. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I think I forgot to add this and guess what--still tasty!)
  1. Preheat oven to 350.(325 if glass)
  2. Mix ingredients in a large bowl with a mixer or KitchenAid.
  3. Pour in 4 x 8 loaf pan. (Mine was a bit smaller)
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes. (don't over cook!! or it will be dry!!)
  5. Let cool before eating, or place in fridge until cool (about 10 min).

Go to her link for the reviews on this. Some added stuff to it.  I liked it just as is, but you have to be very careful not to overcook it or it will be dry. NOTE --if using glass pan use a lower temp--I did mine at 325--I did lightly grease it with coconut oil). You still want it a bit gooey when testing with a tooth pick so it will not be dry. I did it so the toothpick was with just a bit still sticking.
