I thought we could all use a little something sweet this Monday. And what better than a Paleo Fudge Cake from Brittanie of Three Diets One Dinner . Brittanie is eating paleo in a family who isn’t. On her blog she shares about her journey to a paleo lifestyle and how it’s changed everything for her.
After a wine and cheese event last week, she told me about her delicious sounding paleo cake. I was so intrigued and asked if she would let me share her recipe with all of you. She said yes, so here it is!
Doesn’t it look delicious? All photos and recipes shared on this post are from Three Diets One Dinner .
Paleo Fudge (Birthday) Cake
serves 8-12 (depends on your slicing!)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup arrowroot starch (flour)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
2 Tablespoons canned coconut milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4-1/3 cup maple syrup
Dark Chocolate Ganache (recipe follows)
Preheat your oven to 350º and grease an 8″ round cake pan (or 8″ square brownie tin or a 12-muffin tin) with butter. In a food processor, pulse together the dry ingredients until there are no clumps. Coconut flour clumps easily, so make sure it is nice and smooth. In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients until well combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir with a rubber spatula until combined. Spread the batter evenly into the pan with your spatula. It will be thick, so you’ll have to be careful about smoothing it out. Bake for 30 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing it to cool on a wire rack. Cover with dark chocolate ganache and serve.
3 ounces dark (70% +) chocolate, chopped
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
In a bowl, microwave all the ingredients for 2 minutes, stopping and stirring at 30-second intervals, until melted and smooth. Let cool before spreading on chocolate cake.
Doesn’t this look amazing?? Brittanie says it tastes like a ding dong, I can’t wait to try it!
