Cretaceous Chocolate Cake

Okay, this isn't really from the Cretaceous - they didn't have microwaves back then, and that's what will enable you to prepare this cake, from a rumble in your tummy and a wink in your eye to a finished product, in about five minutes. It's another almond flour "baked" good, so expect it to be moist and dense. It's based on recipes you can find all over the net, but our cave-chefs have tweaked and optimized it for the caveman lifestyle.

  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa (or, if you have to, use carob)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • sweetener equivalent to 3 Tbsp sugar (3 droppers full of liquid stevia)
  • 2 Tbsp butter, just melted
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 egg
  1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Add the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and cut a slit in the top to let steam escape.
  4. Microwave on full power for one minute.
Sadly, I'm still working on a passable icing for this cake. However, if you want to serve it with strawberries (sliced and dusted with a stevia powder) and freshly-whipped cream, well, I'm not going to stop you.
