Best Ever Chocolate Mud Cake GAPS & Paleo Compliant



12 slice(s)


  • 8 eggs, (I prefer free range)
  • 375 grams coconut oil, (You could use lard)
  • 100 grams Coconut Flour
  • 50 grams raw cacao powder
  • 250 grams Raw Honey, (I find this just enough. You could increase or reduce the amount, according to your taste)
  • 2 teaspoons Bi-carb soda
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Bean Paste, (Or 2 tbspn vanilla powder or 2 tspn vanilla extract)


  • 200 grams Virgin coconut oil
  • 200 grams ripe, cold avocado
  • 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 100 grams Raw Honey

Recipe's preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 deg. I find with my oven, that 160-170 deg is plenty & I bake the cake for an extra few minutes, to ensure it doesnt dry out or burn.

    Grease or line your cake tin. I use the Thermomix pre-cut parchment paper & I grease the sides of the tin. This recipe makes a massive 33x23cm (12″x9&Primetmrc_emoticons.;) slice. If you want to make a 22cm (8.5&Primetmrc_emoticons.;) round tin use about 2/3 and if you want to make a 18cm (7&Primetmrc_emoticons.;) round tin use 1/2.


    Melt the coconut oil a little - 1 min, 50 deg, sp 2

    Crack eggs into a separate small bowl, one at a time, to ensure they're good eggs before adding to the coconut oil

    Add remaining ingredients & mix - 10 sec, sp 7. Scrape sides of bowl & repeat

    Pour the cake mix into your pre-prepared tin & bake for 35-40 min, no fan. Do the usual skewer test - poke the cake in the middle & if the skewer comes out clean, the cake is ready. Otherwise, give it an extra 5 min try again.

    Cool the cake at room temperature, or refrigerate for a speedier process

    Wash & dry the bowl

    Add all ingredients into the bowl - mix 20 sec, sp 4
    Scrape sides & mix again 20 sec, sp 6

    Spread the frosting over the completely cooled cake & refrigerate.

    Directly from the Kehoe's Kitchen web site - 'When serving, remove from fridge about 30-45 minutes before to allow butter in sponge to soften.'

    I had the cake you see in the image sitting out on a cool day, for about and hour and a half before serving. The textures were perfect. Easy & clean to slice up.

***** EDITED: Makes about 18 regular slices. It's a BIG cake *****

I made a double batch of the cake & the frosting, as I needed to make a layered cake. It served aout 16 children and 16 adults & we still have 1/4 of the cake left. It's in the freezer for healthy, nut-free lunch box treats or that unexpected visitor (or just a healthy chocolate craving).

I also made cupcakes using the same recipe. It made 20 regular size cupcakes.

This recipe is a Thermomix adaptation of the Kehoe's Kitchen 'Best Ever Chocolate Mud Cake'. Enjoy! I'd love to hear what you think.
