Mini Paleo Chocolate Cake (with Ramekins)

Posted by

Whether it’s for a Birthday, Valentine’s day, Christmas, or some solo-I-need-a-chocolate-cake-in-my-mouth event… it’s always good to have a good chocolate cake recipe laying around!  Yes, normal sized cakes are pretty awesome, but maybe you don’t have two good sized cake pans, want to switch it up, or just want to make something delicious, fancy and cute looking.  You’re in luck!  If you have Ramekins laying around… you can make this adorable Mini Paleo Chocolate Cake!

Ok, so how ‘mini’ is mini? I would say it serves 4… but ya know, there are days when you just need more than one slice. So I would make this for 2-4 cake eaters. The nice thin is, it does store well! If you don’t finish it, pop it in the fridge, and eat it later!

  • 1 cup almond flour

Making the chocolate cake layers

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Take 4-inch ramekins and put on top of parchment paper, and outline a circle around it.  Cut the circle out.  Line the bottom of four 4-inch ramekins with those circle cuts out of parchment.  Grease the sides of the ramekins inside.  In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, cacao powder, baking soda and salt) and mix well.  Add honey and melted butter and mix well.  Then, add the eggs and mix well.  Finally, add in the chocolate chunks stir.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes or when cooked thoroughly. You can test this by inserting a toothpick in to the center. If it comes out clean, then it’s ready!  Remove the cake from oven and let cool. Now, go work on the chocolate frosting!

Making the frosting

Add coconut milk, butter, and chocolate chips in to a small saucepan.  Heat over very low heat, and stir until melted.Mini Paleo Chocolate Cake (with Ramekins)

Putting it all together

Place one cake on a plate, and with a spatula spread frosting on the top of the cake.
