Recipe: Chocolate Espresso Cake by Paleo Cafe

340g        Cocoa Mass
1              Short Black Coffee (hot)
1              Vanilla Bean
1tbsp      Cinnamon
4tbsp      Cocoa
¾ cup      Honey
6 x           Eggs
1 cup      Ghee
1cup       Almond Meal
1tsp        Baking Powder

In a mixer add cocoa mass and hot short black coffee and mix on low until the cocoa mass has melted.

Add eggs and honey and beat on high for 3 mins. Turn down to low and add remaining ingredients until combined.

Pour into 22cm cake tin and bake at 170c for 45-50 min.

Serve with a dollop of your favourite dairy free ice cream – we love a scoop CocoLucious Vanilla Ice Cream with this cake.

Note you can substitute the cocoa mass with 340g of 70% dark chocolate if you prefer. Try to source a sugar/dairy free option where possible.

    • Hi Megan,

      Chef Liam said that Cocoa Mass is basically chocolate before the sugar has been added – if you’re having trouble sourcing it, he suggests that some of the sugar free/naturally sweetened dark chocolate blocks out there would be fine to use instead.
