Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup 100 grams Coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup 100 grams Tapioca flour (see note 1)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup 75 grams Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon 85 grams Avocado Oil
  • 3/4 cup 225 grams Raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons Expresso coffee cooled
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup Almond milk
  • pinch of salt

Chocolate Avocado Mousse Frosting

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • ½ cup Raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons Avocado Oil
  • ½ teaspoons natural vanilla extract
  • 1 tiny pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F) and grease 2 round springform tins, with a little coconut oil spray, or butter. Also line the base with greaseproof baking paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix the coconut flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, baking powder and set aside.
  • In a second large bowl, add the avocado oil, unsweetened cocoa powder, raw honey, vanilla extract and cooled coffee and mix together until it looks like chocolate.
  • In the same bowl as the chocolate ingredients, one at a time, add the eggs, stirring after each one.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, whisking making sure there are no lumps, and the batter is thick and glossy.
  • Whisk in the milk until thoroughly mixed in.
  • Evenly divide mixture between the (20 cm/8 inch) two cake tins and smooth out the top with back of a spoon.
  • Bake the cakes for 35 minutes. (To test, insert a cake skewer and if it comes out clean, cakes are done)
  • Once finished cooking, remove from oven and cool in the cake tins for 5 minutes, then release from tin and let cool on a wire rack.
  • FROSTING: Whilst cake is cooling, make the Chocolate Avocado Frosting. Add the avocado flesh to a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Then add remaining ingredients and process until thoroughly combined, scraping down the sides a couple of times to make sure it is all processed evenly.
  • ASSEMBLY: Place one cake on a plate, and lather 1/2 of the frosting on the top, then place the second cake on top and lather another 1/2 of the frosting on top.
