Is there anything better than chocolate cake? I mean, really. Chocolate is good in any form but cake takes the cake. Ha!
Now that I’m no longer pregnant, my keto game is back in full swing. I’m counting my macros again (see this post for info on that) and really being mindful of how I eat. But just because I’m watching macros doesn’t mean I don’t want a treat from time to time. Okay, that’s not totally true. I always want a sweet treat. #sorrynotsorry That’s why I create these recipes. We all need an arsenal of tasty, healthy, easy, keto friendly desserts.
I always taste test my sweet recipes on my children. Not only are they brutally honest, but if they can’t tell something is sugar free, I know it’s good. These miniature Gordon Ramsey’s with their highly refined palettes could detect “healthy stuff” (their words) in just about anything. I’m convinced that if you take one of these cakes to your next potluck, your friends won’t know this cake is D A I R Y F R E E | G L U T E N F R E E | S U G A R F R E E | P A L E O F R I E N D L Y.
And this recipe is just as easy a boxed mix. Just dump, mix, bake, vóila! One bowl and one pan make for easy clean up too! Yasss! You can choose to frost this or not. I dusted mine with a little sweetener and a served with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
Dairy Free Chocolate Cake
- 2 cups almond flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup mayo (I use Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Mayo)
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 cup sweetener
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cake pan and set aside.
- 2 Combine dry ingredients in bowl of stand mixer. Whisk on low speed to remove lumps.
- 3 Add eggs, 1 at a time. Add mayo and vanilla extract, mix thoroughly. Slowly add water and mix until fully combined.
- 4 Bake for 30 minutes. Check for doneness with a knife. Bake in 3-5 minute increments until knife comes clean.
Bundt cakes and single layer cakes will take longer to bake. If using a 9x13 or 2 9 inch cake pans, start checking around the 20 minute mark.
