Paleo Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Cake Recipe.

Anyone recognise this cake?! It’s a merrymaker paleo-fication of a Women’s Weekly classic! That’s right! This is our Paleo Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Cake! Pre-paleo days this was our family’s number one choice for birthdays, mothers day, fathers day, Christmas… really just any celebration that required cake! The original recipe was full of sugar and nasty stuff but with a little help from our friends at Loving Earth we’ve been able to 100% paleo-fy this baby… and it does not disappoint!

We’re actually SO excited to share this choccy cake with you because, in fact, it might be better than the original! We always say that about our paleo-ficaitons but we’re serious… this cake is good. When you take a spoonful it’s like going to paleo chocolate heaven (that’s a real place). Decadent, moist, chocolate, yummy goodness. Plus, chocolate + raspberries = best combo ever! 

What are you waiting for? Go and make this cake STAT! If you want to get a little fancier, you could substitute the Loving Earth choccy for your own home made paleo chocolate which we have a recipe for already (how convenient!).

Mmm paleo chocolate raspberry ganache cake… a total Oh. My. Food. moment!

Always merrymaking,

  1. I made this, but in 2 layers for my daughter’s 21st Birthday. I made 2 layers and sandwiched the 2 with vanilla coconut yoghurt, the ganache and raspberries, then topped it with a later of ganache, and raspberry. It was really very good. Many thanks.

  6. I made this recipe for my birthday for non-paleo’ers.. along with smoked trout, pulled pork & sauerkraut in lettuce cups for main. It was a perfect ‘me’ meal that was also loved by the crowd! Thanks so much!

    Hi Narelle! That menu sounds EPIC! We’re so glad our recipe helped make your birthday even more delish! Love reading your comments on here! e + c

  8. Hi, I’m loving your site! So many great dishes! (Kids are loving it). Just a question: I make cakes (Fondant covered, ganached filled – Laden with Flour, sugar etc) But I’m looking for a healthier alternative! Hence looking to your recipes. Would this recipe suit? I’m needing a dense cake (for layers, ganache and fondant covered – Fondant can be peeled off before eating). I just need a strong cake without all the nasties that wont collapse! xx.

    Hi Donna! Thank you so much for your feedback and comment! Hmmm good question… this cake is quite soft so we don’t think it would work very well! We might have to have a think and get back to you… it needs to be sturdy! Let us think 🙂 e + c
