Today is about chocolate, because it’s the weekend and I love chocolate. This is so easy and quick to make that I might get myself in trouble with this one. Now…, I know we just posted brownies, but it’s been almost two weeks so we’re due for some chocolate. I mean, is there any other flavor? Sort of kidding, but you know what I mean, there isn’t anything quite like chocolate.

While the oven is preheating, I make this on the stove top in a cast iron skillet. If you don’t have one, I can’t recommend it enough. You can make this in a large saucepan and bake the batter in a pie plate, it fits perfectly. I used a fork to break up the nut butter before whisking it in. I suppose you could use a food processor, but that would be a lot more dishes. Even with the nut butter being a little difficult, I still had this in the oven in 10 minutes!

Look at that silky-rich-deliciousness! I made a double batch and I saved some batter in the bowl for ‘taste testing’ while the first cake was baking.

This is superb with coconut ice cream melting into the tender, fudgy cake.

This cake is a mix of tender and moist, mixed with dense and fudgy. The scoop of coconut ice cream on top seems to enhance the depth of chocolate flavor, enhancing the decadence.

If your weekend plans didn’t include something chocolaty, I hope they do now!

Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 4 Tablespoons butter (use coconut oil for dairy-free)
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • ¾ cup maple syrup (Grade A)
  • 8 ounces almond butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ Teaspoon baking powder
Instructions

  2. Place a 9" cast iron skillet over low heat, and begin to melt the butter.
  3. Whisk in the rest of the ingredients one at a time, taking care not the get the mixture too hot, (you don't want to scramble your eggs).
  4. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. You want to take it out when it is still fudgy and soft in the middle because it will continue to cook after you take it out of the oven.
Notes
If you want to take this over the top, add 1-2 Teaspoons of espresso powder.
For the Death by Chocolate recipe, make this cake with ⅔ cup of maples syrup.

    I have the tried every diet going. The problem is I have a sweet tooth and this is my downfall all the time. Would the paleo diet be good to do. How do I start it. Plus is there any reason not to get along with this , like blood pressure problems , cholesterol etc .

      Hi Sonia, I can’t really give you advice about diet, you’ll need to seek out a professional for that. I do know that for myself, (a fellow sweet tooth) I’ve done so much better since completely getting off white sugar. Something about it makes me crave sweets constantly, and I don’t have the same reaction with natural sweeteners. Any dessert, even a naturally sweetened whole foods dessert like this one should still be eaten in moderation. However ‘moderation’ can look different to each person depending on what your health issues might be. I’m sorry I can’t give you more answers, but each person is highly individual with what works best, and that’s why it’s always good to seek out a registered dietician to help you find out what’s best for you, and what might be causing the sweet tooth. I also have never been able to stick to a diet, and I’ve found that instead of cutting things out, I just focus on getting as many veggies into my diet as possible which is the perfect way to edge out less healthy foods. After a number of years, I was able to finally cut out white sugar like I mentioned without if feeling like a sacrifice. If you don’t have any main health issues that would cause you to need to change your diet, you might look into reasons to eat healthier that resonate with you, like having more energy. Having a driving purpose behind what I eat has been the key to eating healthier for me, along with finding new ways to enjoy whole foods so that I don’t feel deprived. I hope this helps a little! 🙂
