Guilt-Free Chocolate Cake

I have to say I'm getting quite adept at the gluten-free, dairy-free & refined sugar-free options, as I take along an intolerance-friendly morning tea option every week to our Mainly Music group. This is the latest in what I now think is a bit of a "guilt-free" series (along with guilt-free lamingtons, guilt-free apricot & coconut loaf and guilt-free hot cross muffins) I made this one because we celebrated our group turning 2, so this was our birthday cake! I was so happy with the texture and got lots of comments that it tasted great! Let me know how you go 🙂

  • ½ cup oil (coconut oil or light olive oil)

Instructions
