6) French Chocolate Cake



  • 180g unsweetened chocolate or 80% chocolate, broken into small pieces
  •  1 tbsp vanilla extract
  •  1⁄2 cup coconut sugar (or other natural sweetener, such as Natvia)
  •  1 ripe, medium-sized avocado, pureed
  •  5 eggs, at room temperature
  •  1 tbsp wholemeal flour
  •  Cocoa powder or powdered natural sweetener, to dust


  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a springform tin and line the bottom with greaseproof paper. Wrap the outside of the tin in aluinium foil (so water doesn’t get in when cooking).
  •  Place chocolate in a small saucepan and melt, stirring, over a low heat.
  • Add vanilla and sugar and stir until well combined. Add avocado puree  and mix thoroughly. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs for 1 minute or  until frothy. Add flour and beat again. Add the chocolate mixture and mix well. Pour into the springform pan.
  • Pour 1 inch (2.5cm) of water into a large roasting dish and place the springform pan in the water. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the cake has just set on the edge but remains soft in the centre.
  • Remove the foil coating and put the pan onto a wire rack to cool for a few minutes. Turn the cake out onto the wire rack and peel the baking paper off the base, which is now the top of the cake.
  • Once completely cooled, decorate with cocoa powder or powdered natural sweetener to serve.

Cooking tip: If you are gluten intolerant, substitute the wholemeal flour for almond meal in this recipe
