Heavenly Devil Cake sounds like an oxymoron, but it is the perfect name for this cake. Allow me to explain:
This baby cake is kinda dangerous (= devilish) because you can make your cake and eat in in less than 15 minutes. In the baking world, that’s super-speed! But, it is heavenly because it is healthy, allergy-friendly, and tasty. It has no added sugar or oil and boasts 5 grams of vegan protein (!) and 12 g fiber (!!) without protein powder. And it doesn’t taste like cardboard. In the health food world, that’s pretty impressive. Hmm…I suppose you could even eat this for breakfast. Way better than All Bran!
This little cake is perfect when you are having chocolate or sweet cravings but don’t have the time to bake an entire cake. I topped mine with some fruit-only cherry jam to create that nice chocolate-dipped cherry flavor. Because of the fiber and protein from the coconut flour, this makes a very filling snack too.
I had to make this cake several times before I finally hit on the right combination of ingredients. If you want a fudgier cake, you can decrease the coconut flour slightly (like by 1/2 teaspoon). I got the best results using a very fine ground coconut flour from Aloha-Nu, but it should work with course ground coconut flour, the texture just won’t be quite as nice.
