A totally delicious Paleo/Keto Flourless Chocolate Cake that is simple to make… YES PLEASE!

To be honest I don’t even know why I made this cake or what inspired me I just ended up making it then thinking of other things I could do with it.

Sometimes with all the recipes I make I am inspired by something I see or hear, or a vision in my head of something I want to photograph so then I create the recipe to match. This recipe must just have been a need for a little cake.

So anyway it is pretty damn awesome! The cake is super moist with a bit of a crisp outer edge. Far from dry this cake needs little else than a sprinkle of cocoa and a dollop of thick cream.

I had one of those visions after making the cake of topping it with ganache and then a pavlova on top with cream and big curls of dark chocolate but time as always gets the better of me.  I swear I need to have a team of chefs in my kitchen to help get all my crazy ideas onto a plate. It seems I am always just running out of time.

Can I just say this is far from rocket science. All you need is a bowl and spoon or whisk.

  1. Melt that chocolate – for even lower carb use a sugar free dark chocolate
  2. Whisk in sweetener, eggs and salt
  3. Fold through remaining ingredients
  4. Pop into a prepared springform
  5. Bake
  6. Cool then serve! Best part

  2. Hi Megan….this cake looks amazing and I can’t wait to make it! I have one question with regard to the dark chocolate. Did you use unsweetened baking chocolate or did you use a regular dark chocolate bar (like 85% cocoa)?

    1. I used a 90% chocolate Suzette.

  3. Wooow This looks yummy, Thanks for sharing…

  4. Hi made your caramel vanilla slice omg to die for even better the next day
    My question here is can you use all almond flour instead of hazelnut Thanks Faye

    1. Yes you can Faye. Glad you enjoyed the caramel vanilla slice too.
