Okay, so for those of you who know Madame Bevillard, you know she is not a self-proclaimed patient, domestic, apron wearing chick to randomly whip up a large cake with 5 million ingredients. That being said, I know many of you are asking for the Bevillard Culinary Creation Recipe —> wellppp, it was SO DARN GOOD that I made her send the secret recipe for the blog ASAP. Here it is in all its glory, as told by the Bevillard Baker herself. #delicious.
So…what kind of birthday cake are you supposed to make for your best friend’s birthday when she is lactose intolerant & a total health hippie? Oh and there is another caveat…she LOVES chocolate (Dark Chocolate of course). Seems like a fun challenge, except there is one small little problem – I LOATHE cooking and/or baking. I don’t get that fun sense of accomplishment making an Instagram worthy creation (and I definitely don’t have the time or energy to spend on this hobby).
But, when it’s your best friends birthday – you give her what she secretly wants (but won’t ask for). A CHOCOLATE CAKE (Gluten & Dairy Free one of course). Challenge Accepted.
- 1 1/2 cups coconut flour
- 1 1/2 cups rice flour
- 1 1/2-2 cups chocolate almond milk
- 1(ish) cup melted coconut oil (virgin, unrefined)
- 1(ish) cup Stevia (plus some liquid drops for sweetened taste as needed)
- 1 single serve cup of coconut milk yogurt (vanilla flavored)
- 3 scoops dark chocolate protein powder
- 3tbs ground flax seeds
- 2tbs chia seeds
- 1+ cup cacao powder
- 1tbs baking soda
- 1tsp baking powder
- 4 eggs
- 1+ cups cacao powder
- 6tbs chocolate almond milk
- handful of dark chocolate chunks
- 1/4-1/2 cup coconut oil
- granulated stevia (until it taste sweet enough)
- some organic powder sugar for consistency
- Preheat oven to 350
- Throw dry ingredients into bowl and mix
- Mix wet ingredients separately and slowly blend the two together
- Split the batter into two cake pans (double layer cake of course)
- Bake for 25-30 minutes (or until a fork comes out clean)
- Side bar: I was paranoid about over cooking this cake because of the ingredients…I definitely did not want a DRY cake at the end of all this work
- Bring water to boil in a larger pot on the stove, lower the heat to low
- Mix cacao powder, almond milk, stevia, powder sugar together
- In a smaller pot, place cacao mixture in the boiling water pot & add in coconut oil and dark chocolate
- Consistently mix slowly until dark chocolate is well blended (but not over done) and be sure to add as much oil as necessary to keep it from clumping
- Let the cake cool, frost & enjoy!
Please keep in mind all measurements are total guestimates – I bake by looking at consistency and taste, not through math.
