  • Great recipe! Love how it's

    Submitted by Joyjoy on 12. June 2013 - 19:19.

    Great recipe! Love how it's so simple.

    I used coconut sugar instead and found it wasn't quite sweet enough. Easily fixed with some coconut nectar drizzled on top just before eating.
    Baked in a muffin tin for 25mins.

    Very filling! I'll be making these again.

    Might add some LSA to the next batch.

    Thank you for the recipe.  I had to make a couple of adjustments to save a trip to the shops - substituted a mixture of pine nuts, walnuts and cashews for the almonds and Crio Bru for the Cacao - have not made the original but I was very happy with how the cake turned out.  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by mjklimec on 1. February 2013 - 08:34.

    This cake was a success in our household!  Even my 'NON chocolate cake lover' son loved it!  Beautifully moist.  Hubby thought it could be slightly more chocolately and next time I am going to try using a cup of espresso in place of the water to soak the chia seeds!

      Thanks for a beautiful recipe.  I'll be posting it on my facebook page - www.facebook.com/mellymaks

    Big Smile

    Submitted by Danielle_Redman on 29. January 2013 - 20:08.

    This is a lovely cake that seems pretty healthy as cakes go! It's not overly sweet and has a light chocolate flavour. The chia seeds give it a nuttiness. I'm reducing my calorie and sugar intake at the moment so this cake has saved me from falling off the wagon completely.  Thank you!

    Oh I meant cocao powder... I was looking for a healthier choc cake with some nutrition. I think I will just try it! I am most fascinated by the idea of the chia seeds soaking and turning into a gel! Big Smile  Thanks!

    Submitted by Goodness me organics on 21. January 2013 - 10:31.

    Depends on your tastebuds... we find it chocolatey enough tmrc_emoticons.)  However it's not meant to be a conventional recipe - more a slightly healthier version of choc cake! tmrc_emoticons.;) Rapadura Sugar and Cacao Powder are unrefined alternatives to Brown Sugar and Cocoa Powder and have more goodness tmrc_emoticons.)


    Try it and see if you like it! tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by ChocoLOT on 21. January 2013 - 01:09.

    This sounds amazing and I will definitely try it... however I am wondering about the 'light' chocolate flavour as I prefer richer chocolate cakes. Has anyone experimented with using say, dark brown sugar and more cocoa powder to make it more chocolatey?
