    ⅓ cup coconut sugar
    1 egg, at room temperature

How to Make Almond Flour Cocoa Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a skillet. Add the coconut sugar and stir, on low heat, until the sugar melts and you make a sauce. Pour it into a bowl and add the egg.
  3. Mix with a hand mixer until smooth. Add the vanilla extract, almond flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Mix further until you make a thick batter.
  4. Pour the batter into a small cake pan (4-inch/10 cm in diameter). Top the cake with fresh raspberries.
  5. Bake the cocoa cake for 20 minutes or until edges are set. After baking, transfer to a wire rack to cool. Drizzle melted dark chocolate before cutting and serving the cake.
