    prep time<>15 mins
    cook time<>30 mins
    total time<>45 mins

    chocolate cake with decadent chocolate frosting that will quickly become our favorite!
    Ingredients
    •chocolate cake
    •2 cups all-purpose flour - instead: 1/2 cup coconut flour, 1/2 cup hemp flour, 1/2 cup coconut (macaroon is best) -- yes the measurements are different. (and i've started using hemp instead of almond flour. But you could add almond in there too, and adjust the measurements so they add up up to 1 1/2 cups, so long as the coconut flour is no more than 1/3 the recipe)
    •2 cups sugar - instead: 1 cup stevia (either "like sugar" or powdered leaf, or half and half of them)
    •¾ cup cocoa - instead: 1 1/4 cup raw cacao
    •2 teaspoons baking powder
    •1½ teaspoons baking soda
    •1 teaspoon salt
    •1 teaspoon espresso powder
    •1 cup milk - instead: 1 cup non-homo kefir, or coconut milk. Or both to be 1 cup.
    •½ cup vegetable oil - instead: Butter or coconut oil
    •2 eggs - instead: Try it with 4 eggs. It could need 6. Maybe i'll test out this sucker myself :d
    •2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    •1 cup boiling water

    •chocolate frosting
    •1½ cups butter (3 sticks)
    •1 cup cocoa
    •5 cups confectioner’s sugar - replace with stevia to taste. That's a lot of sugar!
    •½ cup milk - instead: Full fat greek yogurt (it will help with bulk you lose by using stevia instead of sugar)
    •2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    •½ teaspoon espresso powder
    instructions
    1.preheat oven to 350º f. Prepare two 9-inch cake pans by buttering and lightly dusting with coconut.
    2.for the cake: (read the instructions as using replacement measurements)
    3.add flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt and espresso powder to a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Whisk through to combine or, using your paddle attachment, stir through flour mixture until combined well.
    4.add milk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla to flour mixture and mix together on medium speed until well combined. Reduce speed and carefully add boiling water to the cake batter. Beat on high speed for about 1 minute to add air to the batter.
    5.distribute cake batter evenly between the two prepared cake pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
    6.remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
    7.frost cake with chocolate frosting.
    8.for the chocolate frosting:
    9.add cocoa to a large bowl or bowl of stand mixer. Whisk through to remove any lumps.
    10.melt butter and pour into bowl with cocoa powder. Whisk together until well-combined.
    11.add sugar and milk to cocoa mixture by adding 1 cup of sugar followed by about a tablespoon of milk. After each addition has been combined, turn mixer onto a high speed for about a minute. Repeat until all sugar and milk have been added.
    12.add vanilla extract and espresso powder and combine well.
    13.if frosting appears too dry, add more milk, a tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency. If it appears to wet and does not hold its form, add more confectioner’s sugar, a tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency.
    fixed it

    Sorry if I sound a little negative but there are ways to make a chocolate cake without the usual allergenic / inflammatory ingredients.
    I was thinking the exact same thing. I actually thought it was some kind of joke.

    The poster for that choco cake recipe is a troll. Look at the signature... SEO links.

    HCLF: lean red meat, eggs, low-fat dairy, bone broth/gelatin, fruits, seafood, liver, small amount of starch (oatmeal, white rice, potatoes, carrots), small amount of saturated fat (butter/ghee/coconut/dark chocolate/cheese).

    On many Paleo/primal recipes websites I see a lot of snacks that are made of Chocolate and Cocos. How bad is chocolate? what chocolate do you use? Cacao powder?

    Chocolate is fine as long as it is 72% or darker. In the Netherlands AH has good Swiss chocolate in 72 and 78 % without soy or milkpowder. AH also has austalian organic cocoa powder you can use in baking or for making your own chocolate. Reformwinkels also have good dark chocolates and cocoa powder.

    Raw cacao is your friend! Powder, nibs and paste. I use all of them.

    On that note, I made amazing paleo chocolate cookies using yogurt I made myself with coconut milk. Then I made hemp cinnamon cider cookies and oh my goodness they're insanely good.

    When I write out the recipes (I do everything by methodology/chemistry) I'll share them if you like
