chocolate chia seed cake
I love this grain free chocolate cake! It took me a while to get it right in the cafe & gosh when I did – so many of my wonderful friends & customers just loved it.
This is the base recipe. Once you have perfected this cake you can add so much more yummy stuff to it. This is terrific as small cupcakes (freezable) for lunch boxes, a wonderful birthday cake or just one of those ones you make when a good movie, an awesome coffee and a sit down is needed.
It is chocolaty, high in fibre from the chia seeds and packed with lots of protein – not too sweet and a total taste bud pleaser it really just is super yummy. You only need a bowl & a whisk to get the job done.
To make it extra special remember to make my raw chocolate glaze recipe for an extra oozy blob of deliciousness and chocolaty goodness.
If you are time poor and still wanting to eat awesome grain free chocolate cake you can grab my new range of Whisk and Bowl Baking Mixes here. These new mixes are higher in plant based protein, are the best paleo chocolate cake on the planet, are quick and easy to bake and super affordable. Best of all – these new grain free chocolate cake mixes are nut free, making them terrific for school lunch boxes.
I LOVE that after all these years, since first publishing my best selling cookbook – Gluten Free Grain Free (food we love) my Chocolate Chia Seed Cake recipe still finds its way into homes all around the world. It has been baked by celebrity chefs including Matt Moran , featured in loads of amazing magazines including Cafe Culture International, the Australian Good Food & Travel Guide and featured on award winning blogs including the Nutrition Guru and the Chef and one of my all time favourites Cooked with Love – Katheerine won my heart with this beautiful wedding cake. The woman knows good food and what it means to make beautiful Chocolate Chia Seed Cake.
I love how different people adapt the recipe and make it their own. Sending me loads of images of how they make it in their home and use it to celebrate and mark occassions with family and friends.
Keep enjoying this recipe. Remember if you would love more recipes like this one I have released my second cookbook Abundance. You can find lots of beautiful gluten free, grain free, nut free and dairy free recipes in this book. Hugely adaptable, using seasonal ingredients and keeping it real and affordable.
