coconut chocolate cake

  • 250g butter, chopped
  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1.5 cups caster sugar
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 2 1/2 cups plain flour, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted

Chocolate ganache

  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk

green lime sugar

  • 2 limes
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup of desiccated coconut


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C, and prep your cake pan with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a saucepan, over medium heat, stir together the butter, chocolate, sugar and coconut milk until it’s all dissolved and the chocolate has melted.
  3. Turn off the heat and let it sit to cool for a bit.
  4. In your mixer, add in the eggs, beat quickly, then add in the chocolate mix. Add in your coconut flour, your plain flour, your baking powder, all spice and cocoa.
  5. Mix until it’s all combined, then pour into the cake pan and bake for about an hour and a half, until a skewer comes out clean.
  6. While that’s baking, we’re going to make the ganache.
  7. In a small saucepan, stir together the chocolate and 2/3 cup of coconut cream until it’s completely smooth. Remove from the heat, pour into a bowl, and pop into the fridge util it’s cool, usually 30 minutes.
  8. For the lime sugar, grate the lime rind and pulse into a food processor until it’s fine.
  9. Once the cake is completely cool, and the ganache is thick, we’ll put it together.
  10. Slice the cake in half, smooth with some ganache, and sprinkle on the green lime sugar, leaving some for the top of the cake.
  11. Place the other half of the cake back on top, then smooth all the ganache around the cake so it’s smooth.
  12. Sprinkle on the rest of the green lime sugar.
