  • Spectacular! So quick and easy. I was worried this...

    Spectacular! So quick and easy. I was worried this wasn't going to be birthday cake worthy. It absolutley was! So moist. I didn't make the icing, would prefer a differen't icing for a special occasion. This is a cake for every occcasion. I subbed honey instead of maple syrup and arrowroot flour for tapioca flour because that's what I had on hand. Turned out fabulous. This will become my go-to paleo cake except that it's so good, it's a bit dangerous I'll be eating way too much of it if I'm not careful. Next time I'm going to try to sub the maple syrup for Stevia to make it sugar-free and up the liquid content somehow so it's still so moist. I put in a small loaf tin as I like that shape for dense, moist cakes like this. Thanks for posting! Great job

    Great cake, I lined the Varoma tray with baking paper and steamed it for 55 mins Instead of baking it.

     

    Awesome idea!! I'll do that next time!

    Paleo cake recipes can often be quite tricky with fancy ingredience and tones of eggs but this is a fantastic and realistic recipe and is one of the most convincing Paleo chocolate cakes I've tried yet although I didnt try the icing, it's sooo tasty it's been out of the oven not even 2 hours and I've eatten half the cake.
