This Paleo Chocolate Sheet Cake is delicious! It’s gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and Paleo. It’s perfect for summer, and it’s definitely worth turning your oven on! Since it’s only one layer, it doesn’t take long to put together. Chocolate cake is never a bad idea . . . especially when it’s Paleo!
My family makes a dessert called “Texas Graveyard Cake” that is very similar to this Paleo Chocolate Sheet Cake. It’s a very simple, moist (can I still use that word without cringing?!) cake with a smooth ganache. Both the cake and the ganache contain coffee. If you’re not a mocha fan, don’t worry! This recipe has just enough coffee to bring out the chocolate flavor, but not enough to be overpowering.
I made this cake for Father’s Day, and it was a hit! Both my father and my grandfather loved it . . . but maybe not as much as I did! Chocolate cake is the best. This Paleo Chocolate Sheet Cake is pretty simple, but I love over-the-top chocolate cakes too! Costco has a four-layer chocolate cake covered in chocolate shards, chocolate frosting, chocolate ganache, etc. etc. It is absolutely insane!! It’s so big, it might outweigh a 25 pound dumbbell. I’d much rather use chocolate cake than normal weights in my workout — although I don’t lift weights . . . so I guess I should just eat the cake, not lift it! I would, but it has gluten );
This Paleo Chocolate Sheet Cake is not nearly as extravagant as the Costco chocolate cake, but it’s still incredible! There’s beauty (and deliciousness) in simplicity.
This Paleo Chocolate Sheet Cake is also super simple! It takes just one bowl, a handful of ingredients, and twenty minutes in the oven. This cake is dangerously easy to make!
Of course, you can make it more complex if you’d like. It would be delicious with some raspberries or strawberries on top! You could also add whipped coconut cream, peanut butter, or almond butter. Heck, you could double the recipe and make a three-tiered cake! That would be incredible!!
As you can tell from these photos, the crumb of this cake is perfect. (Is that an overstatement? Am I being a bit conceited? Maybe, but this cake really is perfect. Try it and see for yourself!!) I used almond flour as the base for this cake, but I supplemented with coconut and tapioca flours. I also used brown rice syrup, but another liquid sweetener would work fine! Maple syrup and honey are both great.
I hope you love this Paleo Chocolate Sheet Cake as much as I do! Unless you’re super picky, it’s probably safe to assume that you like chocolate cake . . . so try this one if you’re missing the glutinous version! It’s sweet, chocolatey, and secretly kinda healthy (Well, as healthy as cake can be)!
If you make this recipe, share a photo with me! Have a wonderful day, and maybe treat yourself with some chocolate cake! 😉
