Origins Of Chocolate Cake Obsession
The love of chocolate is seeped deeply in our history…therefore, the addiction is not our fault – it’s genetic! Thousands of years ago the cacao was so significant in value that it was used as trade currency, awarded to warriors post-battle, and served at extravagant royal feasts.
In Aztec culture, the cacao bean was considered more valuable than gold. The most infamous chocolate-lover of them all was Montezuma II. The mighty Aztec ruler apparently drank gallons of chocolate per day for energy and as an aphrodisiac!
How Easy Is It To Make This Recipe?
We love the rustic simplicity of this coffee chocolate dream. You don’t need to be an expert vegan baker to make the perfecto cake; but do take particular care to melt your chocolate to perfection…it’s all about the cocoa after all.
Will This Recipe Break The Vegan Keto Bank?
This is an inexpensive cake to make from scratch and goes quite a long way. With modest portions, you should get 10-12 slices out of it. None will go to waste we can assure you of that! Spare no expense on the chocolate for melting.
A very good quality chocolate here will make the melting process easier and 10X the flavor and consistency!
Vegan Keto Secret Tip
Melting and tempering chocolate can be a bit tricky and requires your best buddha-esque patience. Take your time and melt your choc very gently using a lightly simmering pot of water with a bowl over the top – ensure the bowl never touches the water and the choc is stirred gently as it melts.
Our hot tip?
Break your chocolate into uniform-sized pieces into the bowl so that they melt more evenly…genius!
You need two mixing bowls, a pot for simmering water, a cake tin/mold and a food processor for the frosting.
This gorgeous go-to vegan keto chocolate cake is for an indulgent mood. Perfect for celebrations, or when you just feel like treating yourself and that special someone to pure love on a plate.
