I went to bed in a snow storm and woke up in a snow storm.

Currently, there are two more feet of snow piling up in front of all the windows.

As long as I can still see out and there is enough lights for photos, then we are all good.

Stuck in the middle of a snow storm is a perfect excuse to cook though!

I’ve been making some new favorites today; including, this flourless chocolate cake recipe and some epic cashew chicken that is coming your way very soon!

    How many slices make up the calories/carbs listed, please? servings per cake in other words. Is it 12 slices at 46 grams of carbs, and 33 grams of sugar per slice? That is not all that good for a paleo cake???

    To clarify do you use the solid white stuff after you refegeriate a full fat can of coconut milk or the liquid coconut milk from a unrefrigerated can for the frosting?

      Hi Jillian, that should work, but I have never baked with vegan butter before, so I cannot say for sure about how it will turn out/if it will be the same.

    I don’t have that kind of baking pan… can I use a normal round pan? And just put a knife around the tin to get the cake out when it’s done? thanks!!

    Hi Kaylie,
    I love this recipe! Thanks for the recipe!
    Iโ€™m planning on making it again for a friend, but sheโ€™s vegan. I was wondering if you know how to substitute the eggs. I tried replacing them with appleasauce, but I may have used the wrong proportions. I read on another blog that 1 egg equals 4 tablespoons of applesauce. It was too watery at the end and didnโ€™t bake well. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hi Kaylie,
    I’m planing to make this cake for my b-day so I would assume that it have to be a bit bigger:) You have provided the size\ingredients adjustment and I have a question if I lets say wnat to have 16-20 pieces what should be the size of the backing pan.
    I have one more question can I substitute the coconut sugar with honey for more refine sugars free variant.
    Thank you in advance, and thank you for thinking about all of us chocolate lovers

      Hi Aleksandra, I haven’t tried baking this cake in larger pans, so I’m not exactly sure- I might just double the recipe and make it in two pans. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thank you Kaylie. I’ve made the cake in 24cm pan for 18 pieces used coconut oil instead of butter and the only thing that I can say is its absolutely chocolate cake everybody, especially dark chocolate lover like me, crave for. Thank you for this pleasure

    Kaylie,
    Do you have a good tip for removing the parchment paper from the cake after baking? I noticed your photo did not have any. I do have a silicone round that fits into my springform pan but even that is difficult to remove without breaking the cake. Thoughts? Thanks.

    I recently made this and it was incredible! Since then, I have to remove eggs from my diet. I noticed in the comments a few folks asking about egg replacement. Iโ€™m wondering if thereโ€™s any results for the flax egg? Thank you!
