Chocolate Fudge Cake

The past few weeks have been tough. Trying to make allergy friendly foods has left me with a craving for everything one day and frustration the next as I try to cook two meals every night. With the kids getting out of school soon and my husband gone a lot I know making two meals every meal is going to get hard.

I need to find meals that can double up–something I can enjoy and my family can enjoy too.

Susan of Food Baby Life came to my rescue this month with this chocolate fudge cake. I’m surprising her this month as part of the Secret Recipe Club. Susan is a Mom of three and loves creating healthier foods for her family. I am so happy I get to highlight her this month! She definetely came to my rescue and helped me feel I can enjoy super decadent desserts that taste fantastic and can be served to anyone.

Chocolate Fudge Cake


  • 400 grams (approximately 14oz) dark chocolate, roughly broken into pieces
  • 1 cup of full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour, sifted
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease and line a bread loaf pan, then set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt the chocolate, coconut milk and maple syrup over low heat until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth. Remove mixture from the heat, stir in the vanilla, then allow the mixture to sit for several minutes while you prepare the remainder of the cake.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut flour and sea salt. Stir in the chocolate mixture and continue stirring until smooth.
  5. Pour the mixture into the bread pan, then place the bread pan into a roasting pan. Place the pans into the oven. Pour hot water into the roasting pan until the water reaches halfway up the sides of the bread loaf pan.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. Remove from oven, remove pan from hot water then allow to cool to room temperature. Cover and place pan in refrigerator overnight.
  7. Slice to serve.
