Dark Chocolate Cake for cavemen?!
This indulgent and truly decadent Dark Chocolate fridge cake will leave you wanting to run around and club a few mammoths! Or in the least make you jump for joy.
Paleo has been ‘on trend’ for a few years. Paleo ultimately means following the diet of our prehistoric ancestors; long before refined sugars, microwave meals and doughy bread graced our supermarkets.
You can eat anything we could hunt or gather. SO – meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, regional veggies, and seeds……and Dark Chocolate in its purest form!
Dark Chocolate of 85% and above is considered suitable for people following Paleo diet, so who am I to complain.
The fact the chocolate is not heated twice in this recipe is a good thing, the flavours should stay perfectly in tact!
I had utter joy in recreating this recipe and the fridge cake (I was assured by many) tasted fabulous.
Good question! I hate the thought of breaking up pieces of ‘bean to bar’ chocolate to use in a cake; all those beautiful beans wasted as an ‘added ingredient’ in a cake.
However, I hate to scrimp on the overall flavour. I did choose to use 85% Divine Chocolate in the end and I have to say the end result was palate pleasingly lovely.
The rich notes of Divine chocolate gave the cake a deeper, sensual taste.
Let’s get cake making.
This cake is dairy free, vegan and gluten free!
