Decadent Chocolate Cake (Dairy, Gluten and Grain Free)

I will definitely not claim that this cake is healthy.  It is a treat, but is one I often make to take somewhere.  It is simple and very rich in flavour.  It will satisfy any chocolate craving.
Merry Christmas!

Ingredients (makes 8 inch cake)
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate or 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup palm sugar
  • 1/3 cup dark cocoa powder plus some for dusting
  • 3 whisked eggs
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free vanilla
  • icing sugar for dusting (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease an 8-inch round baking pan then dust with cocoa powder. Line bottom with a round of wax paper and butter paper. 
  2. In a double boiler melt chocolate with coconut oil stirring, until smooth. 
  3. Add sugar and cocoa, stir until blended.
  4. Remove top of double boiler from heat and whisk in the eggs until well blended.
