Gluten Free Paleo Chocolate Cake

skinnymixer’s Chocolate Celebration Cake

Sharing is caring!

This Celebration Cake is something that my family has turned to for the last few years when getting together for birthdays and Christmas. We love it as it is gluten free and dairy free, but more importantly it is very low in sugar and doesn’t make our kids bounce off the walls.

There is no refined sugar in this recipe, the sweetness is all natural from the medjool dates, coconut sugar and sultanas.

If you want to make this look a little more festive for Christmas, I recommend arranging nuts and glacé cherries on top or creating a unique pattern with a doily and dusting with icing sugar.

For birthdays you can top with my Dairy Free Chocolate Ganache for something special. Love Nik xx
