Super Moist Banting Chocolate Cake [Vegan, Paleo. Banting Cake, Heba Pap, Chocolate Cake, Cacao Recipes, Egg-less/No-Egg]

So I adopted this recipe from a previous creation which was my egg-less chocolate cup cakes. The beauty of this cake is that it is naturally free from eggs, dairy and sugar. Check out the original recipe here: No-EggChoc Nut Cupcakes

      1. Thanks for the reply. I wish I could visit South Africa 🙂 I’m in the States. I actually bought macadamia nuts and used a food processer to create a flour. It turned out perfect!
