  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 large eggs at room temperature


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan. Line with a strip of parchment if desired and dust with cocoa powder.
  • Thoroughly whisk together the coconut flour and baking powder.
  • In a large, microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter with the cocoa, stirring until well blended.
  • Whisk the sugar, salt, vanilla, and eggs into the butter-cocoa mixture. Add the coconut flour and baking powder, whisking until smooth.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and let it rest for exactly 10 minutes.
  • Bake until set, and a cake tester inserted into the middle comes out clean. Mine took exactly 35 minutes.
  • Let the cake cool in the pan for 30 minutes before turning it out onto a rack to cool completely. Let cake cool completely before slicing. Note: I let mine cool completely in the pan and didn't have any issues.
