Chocolate cake – paleo & vegan

Who is up for a creamy and rich dark chocolate cake? I made this paleo (and optional vegan) chocolate cake for my Mum’s birthday cause she is a big chocolate and Sachertorte fan.

Although this cake doesn’t contain refined sugar and the glaze is made with my favorite 100% dark chocolate, she still loved it!

Of course, you can’t compare this cake to a conventional chocolate cake you buy at a store that is made with lots of sugar and flour but it is by far the richest chocolate cake I have ever made.

If you prefer watching over reading the recipe, make sure to have a look at my new YouTube video down below.
