Almond Flour Chocolate Cake

I made this cake over the weekend for some friends for a socially distanced grill, and it was DELICIOUS. It has a fudge-like texture and packs a real chocolate flavor punch! Very simple to make too.

And right now, who doesn’t need an excuse to indulge?


What you need:

  • 1 ½ c. (150g) almond flour (packed)
  • ⅓ c. (38g) cocoa powder
  • 1 c. (217g) sugar
  • ¾ t. baking powder
  • ½ t. kosher salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 oz. (89ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 t. vanilla extract
  • ½ c. (90g) chocolate chips
  • Powdered sugar, if desired, to serve

What to do:

  • Oven: Preheat to 350F
  • Prep: Butter sides and bottom of a 9-inch round cake pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper. Pour small amount of cocoa powder and tap and turn the pan until the cocoa powder coats the butter-covered sides.
  • To make: Whisk together almond flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, and vanilla extract. Stir egg mixture into almond flour mixture until well-combined, then stir in chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Use a rubber spatula to scrape into prepared cake pan.
  • Cook: Bake for 25-28 minutes until top is springy when touched, and cake tester comes out clean.
  • Cool: On wire rack for 5-10 minutes, then cover with a cutting board or plate and flip over.

Thank you to for this wonderful recipe!
