  • 1 teaspoon powdered stevia
  • ½ teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • ¼ teaspoon organic baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 8x8-inch baking dish with parchment paper.

  • Add the ghee and vanilla extract and pulse until smooth.
  • Keep aside to cool the mixture in food processor for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Now, add the remaining ingredients and pulse until just combined.
  • Place the mixture into prepared baking dish evenly.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and place onto a wire rack for about 10 minutes.
  • Carefully, invert the cake onto wire rack to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, for sauce: in a small pan, add coconut cream, cocoa powder and maple syrup over very low heat and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring continuously.
  • Remove from the heat off and stir in coconut oil until smooth.
  • Keep aside to cool slightly.
  • Pour sauce over cooled cake and serve.
