We understand COVID-19 has been affecting our lives, and many of us have put on some weight due to restrictions by not being able to exercise whether indoor and outdoor. Fair enough! Social distancing restrictions are here to protect everyone and to reduce the spread.
As we are spending more time at home, why not trying a new recipe? The best part is, we will show you how to make a delicious gluten & lactose free chocolate cake.
Why are we using almond flour instead white flour in this recipe? Because almond flour is rich in vitamin E, protein, fibre, magnesium, vitamin B and phosphor. Almond flour is a good option for gluten intolerants as it does not have gluten in its composition.
Let’s get started!
Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Servings: 8 to 10
- 200g Almond flour
- 225g Brown Sugar
- 6 Eggs

- ½ tsp Salt
- 100g Shredded coconut
- 2 Bananas
- 1 tsp Baking powder
Preheat the oven at 180C.
Add the sugar and butter in a large bowl and mix them for 3 minutes until it is creamy and smooth.
Separate the egg yolks and set aside the egg white. Add the yolks in the mixture and mix them.
Put the chocolate powder in a small bowl, add hot water slowly until it gets thick and smooth.
Add the chocolate mixture into the large bowl and mix everything.
Add the almond flour and slowly mix it with a big spoon.
Whip the white eggs with salt and add to the mixture in the large bowl.
Cut the bananas in slices and add in the mixture.

Finally, add the baking powder and gently mix with the whole mixture.
Put the mixture in a baking pan (8 inches) and put it in the oven.
After 40 minutes, using a wooden skewer or knife, insert it in the middle of the cake to check if it cooked. It is ready when it comes out clean.
