Servings 12


  • 240 grams 2 cups flour
  • 130 grams 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 200 grams 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 90 grams 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 250 grams 1 cup pear pure
  • 120 grams 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • zest from one orange

For the frosting

  • 200 grams dark orange chocolate
  • 2 tbsp. coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp. raw cacao powder


  • Whisk all of the dry ingredients in a bowl until combined (from flour to salt on the ingredient list).
  • Stir in the rest of the ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour into a greased medium-round baking pan.
  • Bake at 200ºC for 30-40 minutes (this depends on which oven you use, so keep an eye on it!) until you insert a toothpick on the center and it comes out clean.
  • For the frosting, melt chocolate on low in a saucepan, often stirring, so it doesn't burn! Add in coconut milk and raw cacao powder and whisk until combined. Keep whisking until glossy and remove from heat then.
  • Cover cake in chocolate sauce and enjoy!


You can use brown sugar if you cannot find coconut sugar.
Any milk or vegetable milk can be used instead of almond milk. However, only fatty dairy should be used in place of coconut milk (i.e.: whole milk or oat/rice/almond cream)
To make the pear puree, cook 440 grams of peeled pears with 1/4 cup of water until soft, and then blend it. You can also use applesauce.
You can find vegan orange chocolate in most health-food stores.
