Hot Chocolate Cake Recipes

When you combine two of your childhood favorites it’s not only amazing, it’s epic!

And, that what I’m doing with this hot chocolate that’s now a hot chocolate cake. 

FlavCity Keto Hot Chocolate

Leave it to Bobby from FlavCity to work in his science lab and bring together ingredients that make a creamy delicious hot chocolate. Use the code ALLY15 for 15% off your order (good until DEC 30 2022)!

Yes, it’s keto-friendly, too. So, sip away at your childhood dream and along the way make yourself a chocolate ‘mustache’! 

FlavCity Hot Chocolate Mix

When you’re thinking of a hot chocolate mix that’s actually got some acceptable ingredients in it, you want it to taste good. And, not only does this mix taste good, but it’s made with NO sugar, 2.5 net carbs, and only 40 calories per serving. What a great way to curb your sweet tooth cravings then with a mug of this hot chocolate. 

But, wait, we’re gonna make it into a cake! 

The ingredients, Organic Cocoa Powder, Organic Coconut Milk, Stevia Leaf Extract, Erythritol, Organic Cinnamon, Pink Himalayan Salt, are going to pair perfectly with all the other wet and dry ingredients in the cake. 

Now if you’re in the mood for hot chocolate with a healthy twist, then look no further! And, how do I make hot chocolate full of good nutrients? Well, yes, it can be done. Just take a peek!  Healthy Hot Chocolate! 

Healthy Chocolate Cake Almond Flour

You can make this cake with regular flour or almond flour for the gluten free folks. 

I’m thinking other GF flours also would work, like rice and coconut flours. 

Moist Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

Without a doubt, this is a moist cake. It’s got a tad sponge texture in a really good way. This makes the slicing of it almost flawless. 

And, since I’m using a larger bundt pan, about 10″ diameter, the cake is more thin, which I love. 

GF Chocolate Cake Almond Flour

There’s not a lot of work to this cake. 

You gather your wet and dry ingredients. Then combine them both. 

You bake. That’s about it. 

Chocolate Cake GF

And, the option of the chocolate ganache splatter and orange zesting is, like the walnuts, totally optional. 

For me, I think chocolate and orange go together like peas and carrots!

Easy Hot Chocolate Cake

Yield: Makes: One about 10" diameter springform pan


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • 3 scoops FlavCity Keto Hot Chocolate
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 Tbl. cacao powder
  • 1 Tbl. baking powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 banana, smashed
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk, unsweetened + a tad bit more to get the right consistency
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Chocolate Ganache Splatter (1/3 cup Coconut Milk, 1/2 cup HU Chocolate Chips, 1/2 tsp. butter, salted)
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • Orange Zesting when cake is finished
  • Sea Salt Flakes, garnish


  1. Combine in a large mixing bowl the dry ingredients. Blend and mix. Set aside.
  2. In a large 4-cup measuring cup, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  3. Combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and blend well. The batter should be the consistency of a thick milkshake that pours easily. If you need to add a 'tad' bit more coconut milk to achieve this consistency, then please do so. Blend in the walnuts (optional).
  4. Pour into a well-greased springform pan (about 10" diameter) with the bottom lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 29-32 minutes. Do the toothpick test in the center. If it comes out basically clean, all good.
  6. Remove to a cooling rack. Dislodge when cool.
  7. Splatter with chocolate ganache. Zest with fresh orange, Sprinkle on a few sea salt flakes.
  8. GANACHE SPLATTER: Combine the coconut milk and chocolate chips in a small saucepan over medium low heat. Let it start warming. You'll see the chocolate chips beginning to melt. Use a whisk to blend together making a thick chocolatEEEE mixture. If too thick, add a tad bit more coconut milk. Finish with adding the butter. It will make your ganache glisten.

  2. Can i substitute the Flavcity chocolate for unsweetened cacao? Or a cacao protein or maybe cacao collagen?

    1. Hi, Martz, most certainly. Actually I didn’t have any cacao, so I did another scoop of FC, plus some unsweetened choco chips in the batter. Worked fine. Cacao protein or cacao collagen would most probably work too. We so enjoyed last night for dessert (w/ice cream!). Please let me know! xoxx ally

  3. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. This recipe was very easy to bake. I use 1/2 cup of applesauce instead the banana. And made cupcakes. Didn’t made the ganache but add salt as garnish. They were delicious.

    Can I omit the banana?

    1. Hi! You could substitute applesauce. 1/2 cup applesauce for one banana. You could also try one egg white. Let me know what you do! xoxx ally

  5. What can I substitute for the coconut milk?

    1. Hi, Kirsten! You could use the same amount of heavy cream or half and half. If you don’t want dairy, you could use a plant (or nut) based ‘milk’ and add to it 2 TBL coconut oil. You could also use plain Greek yogurt (same amount) + 2 Tbl. water/mix. Let me know! xoxx ally

  6. I’m going to substitute Monkfruit for the sugar and sour cream for the banana to keep it Keto. Can’t wait to make it tomorrow! Thanks.

  9. Yvette Strick says:

    What if you don’t have Flav City chocolate. Mix?

    1. Hi, Yvette, you could use another chocolate mix. You’d need to adjust sugar b/c probably other hot chocolate cacao mixes have more sugar in them. A scoop of FlavCity is about 1/4th cup. This cake is so so good! Hope you try and, please let me know! xoxx ally

  10. No calories per serving ?

    1. Hi, Nick, no I don’t report that with my recipes. But I’d say just a sliver is plenty! xoxx ally
