Decadent chocolate cake with matcha

Updated: 7 days ago


This chocolate cake is easy to make at home and it has quickly become our favourite guilt-free (as it has no sugar, flour or dairy) dessert to indulge in. Crunchy and rich with unexpected twist in taste coming from matcha, it could truly be the most decadent chocolate cake on earth! You can jazz it up as you wish adding vanilla, orange peel or rum into the chocolate layer.


You will need:


1 cup of dried dates

1 cup of roasted hazelnuts

5 tablespoons of coconut oil

100 g of high quality cacao

2 or 3 if smaller ripe avocados

4 tablespoons of honey

Matcha powder to sprinkle

A blender and a cake form


To make the base:

Wash the dates in hot water and drain them well (you'd need to soak them longer if they are not soft enough). Take the stones out, add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and mix with blender. Roughly chop hazelnuts, add to mixture and blend everything until well combined. Finish mixing with hands and work it into the form to make a base. Base will be around 5-10 mm deep depending on the size of your form. Put it in the fridge.


To make the chocolate layer:

Place avocados, cacao, honey and the rest of the coconut oil in a deep bowl and blend well into smooth consistency. Gently spread on top of the base and place back into the fridge to cool.


Sprinkle with matcha powder using a tea strainer when you are ready to serve. We find it’s best straight out of the fridge.


May be served as is or with your favourite topping.


That’s it! Enjoy.
