    I'm sorry but I made this and its gross. It's not a cake....unless you drown it in coconut whipped cream and strawberries....which I had no option but to fo to disguise it. Yikes. It was like very plain, cold, unsweetened chocolate oatmeal in a big round cake shape.

    I added some chopped walnuts. It was very nice and light cake. Next time I will try to make it with pistachios and will add a bit sugar. Thank you for the recipe!

    Why is there a need to lace the chocolate? I don't see anything decorative about this cake.

    I see this more of a base layer for a cake, you can add whatever you want on top or in the cake. You don’t have to follow the exact recipe every time. :)

    I would probably add some honey or sugar and vanilla extract. Jane, adding nuts is good idea, thank you ;)

    I tried to make this and it turned out to be so wonderful. The taste is just right, love the coconut milk flavor. I tasted the dark chocolate first before using it to make sure the sweetness is just right for our taste. And it’s super duper EASY w only 3 ingredients.This is a HEALTHY dessert. We can eat as much without the guilt. Do not compare it to regular flour cake, it’s totally different.
