Chocolate Coffee Cake

I’m not a good cook, and I’m an even worse baker. But this recipe is super easy. Two bowls, maximum, and no tricky things that remind you of laundry, like tossing or folding. The end-product is moist, slightly gooey, cake-like, and just lightly sweet.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the first 6 ingredients (eggs, coconut milk, coconut butter, coffee, maple syrup, and vanilla) in a bowl. Mix them together. I always use my favorite kitchen tool, my stick blender, to do the mixing.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir.
  4. Add the liquid, a little at a time, to the dry ingredients, mashing and stirring the mixture until smooth. Then, add half the chocolate chips to the mixture and stir them in.
  5. Pour/push the mixture into the greased baking dish, smoothing it out with a spatula. Top with coconut flakes, then chocolate chips.
  6. Bake for 35 minutes, then allow it to cool. Or eat it right away and burn your tongue. Whatever.

  1. This was wonderful! I took it to a coworker’s summer bbq and not only was it nearly gone by the time we left, but I had multiple requests to please make more to bring into the office. Delicious!

  2. The recipe calls for dark chocolate chips. Is there anything I shouldn’t watching out for on the ingredient list for chocolate chips?

  3. i’ve seen quite a few recipes that call for ‘full fat coconut milk’. i am assuming that is different than the coconut milk you buy from the dairy section of the store, or can i just grab a half gallon of Silk Coconut milk and call it good?

    • This is a great question! Full fat CANNED coconut milk is what we want to use, because the refrigerator section’s offerings are full of added ingredients, preservatives and stabilizers. Canned coconut milk should have just coconut, sometimes coconut and water, and sometimes coconut, water and guar gum. While the brands without guar gum (or any other gum) are best, you can use the ones with gum in a pinch. If you see any other ingredients on the can, it’s not a quality brand. We like Native Forest, Golden Star Trading, and Thai Kitchen. There are a few other good brands out there – just check those ingredients!

  4. Recipe instruction Says to combine eggs but there are no eggs listed in the recipe.
