  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 400 grams dark chocolate, roughly broken into pieces
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups almond flour


Preheat your oven to 150°C  and grease and line a round 18cm cake tin.

Place the coconut milk, chocolate and honey into a medium sized pot over low heat. Stir continuously until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is well combined. Keep the heat low as you do not want to burn the chocolate. Once everything has mixed together remove from the heat and set aside.

In a medium sized bowl whisk the eggs. Stir in the almond flour then stir in the chocolate mixture. Once combined pour the mixture into your prepared cake tin.

Place the tin into the oven and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool in the tin for 30 minutes before gently transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Slice, serve with cream or yoghurt and enjoy.
