Method:

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl, except choc chunks
  2. Mix and melt coconut butter and oil together in a separate bowl, add agave and vanilla
  3. Slowly add coconut yoghurt and coconut butter mixture to dry ingredients
  4. Fold in chocolate chips
  5. Pour batter into cake mould or a lined tin
  6. Bake at 180C for 30minutes (approx). Your cake will be browning on top and a toothpick will come out clean.
  7. Serve with Raglan Coconut Yoghurt and sprinkle with cacao nibs
  8. Optional; ice your cake! I used The Caker’s Vegan Chocolate Icing mix – delicious and decadent! Alternatively, you can make your own dairy free icing. For a creamy, coconutty flavour use Raglan Coconut Yoghurt, a touch of powdered sugar and honey or agave. For a rich chocolate topping mix cocoa powder and powdered sugar, wetting with a smidgen of coconut or almond milk. Adjust quantities to reach your preferred sweetness and consistency.
