Grain free Mocha cake

Grain free chocolate cake is a family favourite. Served with extra thick cream it makes a delicious pudding. Today I thought I would make a mocha version. hope you like it.



Mocha cake –

150g ground almonds

40g cacao powder ( I use BonPom )

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups of dates stones removed , approximately fill a 1 pint jug with dates

1/2 cup  ( 100ml ) of fresh strong coffee – from soaking dates

2 tbsp melted unsalted butter ( or 2 tbsp melted coconut oil )


pre heat oven 165c



put the halved dates in a pint jug and fill to the top with freshly made coffee

leave for 10 mins

put dates in a blender with 1/2 cup( 100ml ) of the coffee soaking liquid

( keep rest of coffee soaking liquid incase you want to add some more later )

blend to a smooth paste.

put dry ingredients in to a bowl

add beaten eggs and melted butter

add smooth date paste



mix well

pour into a greased lined cake tin





bake for 25- 30 mins at 165 c


remove cake from tin and put on a wire rack

Enjoy with cream or cream alternative.

If you are not avoiding sugar I’m sure this cake would be delicious with chocolate and coffee butter icing

    This Grain Free Mocha Cake from Fabulously Free From is amazing. It’s wonderfully moist and fudgy with a really rich chocolate taste. Mike said it is the best cake I’ve ever made so many thanks to Fabulously Free From for the recipe. Give it a try – you won’t believe that it’s gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and refined sugar free!
