Stracciatella Chocolate Cake

This amazing grain-free and dairy-free cake combines deep and luscious chocolate layers frosted with a creamy vanilla filling with crunchy cacao nibs.

Cake:

  • ½ cup coconut flour

  • ½ cup almond flour

  • ½ cup raw cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon psyllium husk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder

  • ½ cup oat milk

  • 6 organic eggs

  • 5 tbsp organic honey or coconut palm syrup

  • 5 tbsp cup coconut palm sugar

Filling:

  • about 5 tbsp almond butter

Stracciatella filling:

  • 2 cans full fat coconut milk (refrigerated overnight)

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder

  • 1 tablespoon organic honey or coconut syrup

  • 5 tablespoons raw cacao nibs

    On top:
    grated raw chocolate

The pan diameter: 18 cm / 7 inches.

Preheat the oven to 175 celcius degrees (350 F). Grease the cake tin with coconut oil and cover the bottom with a piece of parchment paper so that the cake is easier to remove later.

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Beat the eggs in another bowl with honey and coconut sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy (about 1-2 minutes). Mix the dry ingredients and egg foam. Stir in the oat milk.

Pour the batter into the cake tin. Bake in the center of the oven for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center. (In the meantime prepare the filling) Take the cake tin from the oven and let the cake cool. Remove the cake from the pan, if necessary, help gently with a knife.

Stracciatella filling:

Take the coconut milk cans out of the fridge. Open the cans and remove all the solid coconut cream / white stuff and scoop it into a bowl. Mix cream in a bowl with beaters until fluffy. Mix in honey or syrup, vanilla and cacao nibs. If the mixture gets too runny, place it in the refrigerator for a while.

Assembly:
Cut the cake in two parts. Spread almond butter on top of the first layer. Add also stracciatella filling. Add the second layer on top and spread stracciatella filling also on top of the cake. Decorate the cake by sprinkling some grated raw chocolate on. Serve and enjoy!
