Silicone Spatula - I love and recommend this 3 piece set
8 inch Cake Pan
½CupCoconut OilMelted and cooled
Ganache Frosting (Optional)
Fruit of your choice
Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8 inch cake pan well.
Mix eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla together in a large bowl with a hand mixer. You should mix until the mixture almost doubles in size, about 2 - 4 minutes on medium speed.
Add in the coconut oil, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Stir everything until just combined.
Pour into the cake pan and bake for 30 minutes. Let the cake cool completely before removing from the pan and putting on a cooling rack or serving plate.
Optional: For a chocolate "ganache" frosting, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave, or over a double boiler. Pour over the cooled cake, and put in the fridge to set for at least 15 minutes. Top with your favorite fruit, if desired, or a sprinkle or shedded coconut!
