For the Cake

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate very dark, finely chopped

For the Ice Cream (Optional)

  • 4 bananas ripe, frozen
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs


  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cocoa powder, and maple syrup. Pour into a 4 quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with chopped chocolate.
  • Cover and cook on high for 1-2 hours, or on low for 2-3 hours. Crockpot times will vary, so start checking your cake around 1 1/2 hours. You'll know it's done when the center is set, and springs back to the touch.
  • As soon as the cake is done, unplug the crockpot, and keep the cake covered until ready to serve.

  1. Sounds lovely, but still naughty … any idea on how this may work substituting the maple syrup (pure sugar) with rice malt syrup?

    1. We haven't tried this recipe using cacao, but we believe it would work fine without much variation in taste. Please let us know how it turns out.

  2. Your recipes are THE BOMB!! I tell everyone about them! Your recipes are helping me lose weight. THANK YOU!!
