Enjoying a chocolate cake shouldn’t be shrouded in guilt. This delicious recipe is much healthier than traditional dessert recipes but no less tasty.


120g coconut sugar

4 eggs, separated

160g dark chocolate

160g butter

160g ground almonds

Raspberries, to decorate

In a mixing bowl, add the coconut sugar to the egg whites. Keep the egg yolks for later.

Then slowly melt the dark chocolate in a bowl positioned over a saucepan of boiling water. Once this has melted, add the butter and egg yolks into the chocolate and fold together until combined.

Gently fold the chocolate mixture into the egg white mixture. Next, add in the ground almonds. Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin and bake in the oven, pre-heated to 180C for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. After 20 minutes, cover with foil and place back in the oven for the remaining time.

Decorate the cake with raspberries and sprinkle with icing sugar to serve.

Sugar Safe Tips:
We all need a sugary treat sometimes but keep in mind that they should be occasional only, as they cause spikes in blood sugar levels, which can cause health problems.
