  • In a bowl, thoroughly combine the ingredients from the first section.

  • If desired, decorate the top of the cake with additional pieces of chocolate.

  • Bake for about 30 minutes.

History

Without any doubt, one of the best chocolat cakes in the whole entire world. A special cake that lets you get creative when your kids get too many chocolates. When they ask, “Where did they go?” you can just say, “I don’t know. You must have eaten them all . . .” Ha! Ha!

Just imagine their reaction! This cake can just as easily be made using gluten-free flour. If you want to steal the show, top the cake with pieces of chocolate as soon as it comes out of the oven. Because the cake’s still very hot, the chocolate will melt slightly. Bon appetitski!

I came up with the idea of healthy chocolate cake (there’s no refined sugar apart from the sugar in the chocolate) because my children are given way too much chocolate at Easter. We’re a far cry from the 80s when children received just one single chocolate egg each (in my house anyway).

I hope you have fun baking this cake.

Converting your Easter chocolates into an amazing cake is a deliciously tempting idea, you must admit. Enjoy!

*** By the way, this recipe is unbelievably scrumptious if you use my caramel date puree. The flavour goes right off the charts… that’s if you like choco-caramel of course.

FAQ

Where can I buy Madame Labriski date puree?

At IGA, Rachelle Béry, Marché Tradition and Bonichoix grocery stores across Quebec. My purees contain no preservatives and can be found in the fruit and vegetable section (yes, dates are fruit) near the pre-cut fruit and vegetables. If you can’t find them, simply ask a member of staff!

Can I swap chia seeds for flax seeds and vice versa?

Yes, always. You can also use hemp seeds.

I have cricket powder. Can I add some to any recipe?

Yes. You can easily add 2 to 3 tablespoons. Cricket powder is a flour (powder) that’s very high in protein.

The recipe calls for a plant-based beverage, can I use regular cow’s milk instead?

Yes, always.
