Anyway back to the Easter cake.

So we’ll be honest the only reason why it is an Easter cake is because we decorated it with cute Easter bunnies and eggs. So if you don’t want to make it for Easter that is definitely ok! Make it for a Birthday, afternoon tea or just because.

It really is amazing how good sweet treats can taste when they have no grains, no refined sugar and no gluten! We just don’t need that stuff. Na-uh, not now, not ever. 

Ok, time to eat this easy healthy chocolate cake! YAY! Fun! Wait until you taste the icing!

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla

  1. Im confused by the blanched almond meal? Can you use fresh almond meal? I mill it myself in my thermomix. Thanks.

  3. Hi Emma & Carla. For the melted chocolate can I just use a home made one with coconut oil, cacao, & rice malt syrup? Would that work?
    Thanks ????

  5. Hi Emma and Carla! This recipe looks utterly delicious! I was just wondering if you were going to make any more sweetener free recipes? Just curious as I loved them as I have to be low carb.

  7. Hi there,

    My son is allergic to all nuts, I use coconut flour for my baking, can this be used instead of almond meal?? Or you might suggest something else? Many Thanks : )

    Hi Heidi, we have never tried it with coconut flour but worth a try! You probably already know that when you swap to coconut flour you will need more liquid/eggs. Let us know how you go! 🙂

  9. I just love this cake thank you. I do it without the icing and with 1TBS of stevia instead of the rice malt syrup to make it low carb. I just grate (rather than melt) 85% chocolate in my thermomix then blend all the ingredients together at once to make it quicker. Thanks for all your great recipes.

  11. Hey girls! Do you use medjool dates for the caramel icing, or dried ones that are already pitted? Can’t wait to try this, thanks!
