My dear friend and fellow shlucha, Chanie Tenenbaum made this cake for me a week ago so I can definitely not claim that I found this!
I can claim however, that it is so delicious and has a fantastic texture for a Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free and SUGAR free and OIL free cake!
It takes about 6.5 minutes to make in a cuisinart!
I changed the recipe a bit and will include the original here as well, which is from http://www.nourishingmeals.com
Grain-Free Chocolate Walnut Brownies
Only a food processor is needed and there is no need to add any extra oil or butter because the ground walnuts provide plenty of fats.
2 cups raw walnuts (I tried a version of this using half cashews and half pecans and it was simply delicious!)
⅓ cup cocoa powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
2 large organic eggs
½ cup maple syrup ( I used Honey & when doubling this recipe, I only used 3/4 cup honey)
1 tablespoon vanillaPreheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 x 8-inch glass baking dish with coconut oil.
Pour batter into baking dish. Spread evenly into pan with a rubber spatula or spoon. Bake for 25 minutes. Cool for about 20 minutes before slicing.
Variation: Replace the walnuts with raw pecans.
