Here’s a great recipe from our friend Julia at The Roasted Root. There are plenty of ways you can make this cake your own. For instance..
=> Add some orange extract + orange zest to make it a chocolate-orange experience.
=> The same goes for peppermint or almond extract, or really any flavor you’re going for.
=> Add fresh raspberries to the cake batter and bake them in for a berry-studded treat.
=> Add a tablespoon or two of coffee grinds for an even richer cake
=> Use any sweetener you prefer in place of pure maple syrup, such as honey (avoid for low FODMAP), coconut palm syrup, or agave nectar.
I recommend topping the cake with a glaze (you can prepare a powder sugar-based glaze for an un-paleo cake, or whip up a coconut milk-based frosting/glaze), fresh seasonal fruit, and some roasted nuts. I went the coconut milk glaze + blueberries + dark chocolate shavings + maple-candied pecans route.
