I posted this pic to Instagram back in February and so many of you have been asking for the recipe. My mom made me this vegan flourless chocolate cake for my birthday and it was better than any chocolate cake I've ever had.
15 oz pumpkin puree
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup coconut oil
8 oz unsweetened chocolate
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and prep your 8 in circle pan with parchment paper and grease the pan, including the sides, with cooking spray.
Place cocoa powder, brown sugar, pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
Melt the baking chocolate and coconut oil together in a saucepan over low heat, stirring until completely melted.
Combine the melted chocolate/oil with the cocoa/sugar/pumpkin, etc. mixture.
Whisk well until fully combine.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Smooth the top with a spatula.
Bake in preheated oven for about 60 minutes.
Allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then remove the sides of the springform, and allow to cool completely before wrapping in saran wrap and placing in the fridge overnight to firm up.
Once firm, serve immediately with a dusting of powdered sugar, raspberries, coconut cream, etc.
