Instructions

For the cake:

  • First, pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  • Grease a 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray or coconut oil.
  • Then place a piece of parchment paper on the bottom of the cake pan, leaving an overhang on the sides to lift the cake out when it’s done. Set aside. If you have a removable bottom baking pan you can skip this step.
  • Beat the eggs with a stand or electric mixer until they are fluffy and a light yellow color. It will take about 3 to 5 minutes on high speed.
  • In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt the butter.
  • Then, add the chopped chocolate in the butter bowl and microwave it again for 1 minute. Stir everything all together until the chocolate has completely melted.
  • Pour the melted chocolate into the whipped eggs and stir well until completely combined.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Pour the batter into the 9-inch round cake pan.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Be sure to not overbake it.
  • Remove cake from oven and allow it to cool down before adding the ganache topping.
  • Optional: sprinkle on some powdered sugar (you can use this natural sweetener powdered sugar) and fresh strawberries.

For the Ganache:

  • While the cake is in the oven, make the chocolate frosting.
  • In a heatproof bowl, add dark chocolate over simmering water.
  • When the chocolate has started to melt, add the almond milk and mix well until all is combined and smooth.
  • Allow the chocolate frosting to cool before icing the cake.
  • Spread the frosting chocolate over the top. Enjoy!
