Instructions

Make the Chocolate Cake

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/375F degrees.
  • Grease and line a 8inch springform cake tin with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the butter until soft
  • Add the sweetener and whisk together.
  • Whisk in the egg yolks, one at a time until the mixture is smooth.
  • Add the coconut flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, almond milk and salt. Whisk together.
  • In another small bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff.
  • Fold the egg whites into the cake mixture.
  • Spoon the cake mixture into the cake tin and bake for 35-40minutes until the centre of the cake is firm.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tin.
  • Remove the cake from the tin and place on a cooling rack.

Make the Filling

  • In a small bowl whisk the cream, vanilla and sweetener until stiff. Add the chopped strawberries and gently whisk together.

Chocolate Ganache Topping

  • Heat the chocolate chips in a Bain Marie over a pan of simmering water.
  • Pour ¼ of the melted chocolate into a bowl and stir in the cream. The mixture should be thick to pour on the top of the cake. If it’s too thick, stir in a couple more tablespoons of cream.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

  • Wash the strawberries and dry them
  • Hold the strawberries by the stems and dip them into the melted chocolate, rolling them around to cover them evenly.
  • Either place them on waxed or parchment paper or directly on the cake as per the assemble instructions below.

To Assemble

  • Cut the chocolate cake sponge in half.
  • Place the bottom half of the cake on a serving plate.
  • Spoon the cream over the cake half evenly.
  • Place the top cake half on the cream and gently press down.
  • Spoon the chocolate ganache on the top of the cake and spread it evenly.
  • Place the chocolate covered strawberries on top of the ganache topping.
  • Store the cake in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving for the chocolate to firm up.
