Mini Chocolate Cake:

German Chocolate Frosting:


Chocolate Cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 325F. Grease three 4-inch ramekins or mini cake pans well. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, sweetener, baking powder, and salt.
  • Whisk in the butter, egg, and vanilla extract. Divide between the prepared baking dishes and bake 10 to 15 minute or until set and firm to the touch.
  • Let cool in pans, then run a sharp knife around the inside of the ramekins and flip out. If your cake layers have humps, slice the tops off to make them flat and even.


German Chocolate Frosting:

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream, egg yolk, sweetener, and butter. Cook until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes, watching carefully the whole time.
  • Remove from heat and stir in coconut, pecans, and vanilla. Let cool a few minutes as it will continue to thicken up (if it’s too thin, whisk in a teaspoon of coconut flour to help thicken it).


To Assemble:

  • Place one layer of cake on a plate and top with about 1/3 of the frosting. Repeat with the remaining layers and frosting.
