Ok I’ve said it before, I LOVE Chocolate! I’m happy to share this recipe with you for Chocolate Truffle Cake! It is Paleo, Gluten Free and Dairy Free! Here we are serving it with strawberries but you could also drizzle your favorite chocolate syrup over it along with strawberries…..mmmm.
This cake is made with Almond Flour. Almond Flour has a slightly sweet light almond flavor. I love it! It also gives extra moistness to the cake. Almond flour also provides more health benefits than traditional wheat flour, such as reducing “bad” LDL cholesterol and insulin resistance! Plus Almond Flour is low in carbs. If you love baking with almond flour, try this recipe for Chocolate Chip Scones.
Photos below show how this cake was put together. Recipe follows the photos. Enjoy!
