Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Place the frozen fruit into a bowl to defrost. Set aside.
  2. Grease with coconut oil and baking paper a flan or 9 inch round cake tin.
  3. If you are using a Thermomix, make sure the bowl is clean. Using the whisk attachment, whisk the egg whites first on speed 5-6 until firm peaks are formed. Slowly slide into another clean bowl.
  4. Combine the cacoa powder, honey, coconut oil and mix on speed 2 for 1 min or until the ingredients are incorporated. Add the baking powder and pinch of salt.
  5. Fold in the almond flour and egg yolks and 1/3 of the fruit (optional).
  6. Then fold slowly half of the egg whites until combined and then the remaining egg whites, being careful to not lose the air in the eggs.
  7. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 40 minutes or until the knife comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the cake.
  8. In the mean time make the chocolate topping sauce. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well combined apart from the coconut oil. Whisk in quickly the melted coconut oil until a thick chocolate sauce is formed. Pour on the top of the cake, add the rest of the fruit, shredded coconut and chocolate shards if you are using them.
  9. Place in the fridge for 5 minutes to set and then serve with whipped coconut or regular cream on the side.
Notes
  1. This desert is jam packed and full of antioxidants in the fruit and raw cacao powder. The cleansing and filling saturated fat of the organic coconut oil will leave you feeling indulged but guilt free.
  2. I love my sauce thick, dark and rich so I add more cacoa powder. If you would like a more milk chocolate taste just add 1/4 raw cocoa powder. This sauce is also great warm.

    Very easy to make and the cake with the rasberry was beautiful, however the glaze made it far to heavy for mine and my friends tastes, have tried it again with white chocolate glaze and this was given a huge thumbs up
