  • 58 grams almond flour (lightly toasted)
  • 15 grams coconut flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 42 grams Valrhona Cocoa Powder
  • 2 egg yolks (lightly toasted)
  • 5 tablespoons Swerve Sweetener (to taste*)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 42 grams grass-fed butter (lightly toasted)
  • 72 grams ricotta (lightly toasted)
  • 60 milliliters water
  • 1 batch frosting (lightly toasted)
  • 1/2 batch buttercream frosting (lightly toasted)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • Grease and dust with cocoa a muffin tray.Lightly toast almond flour in a skillet or pan over medium heat until lightly golden and fragrant, 8-10 minutes.
  • Stirring very frequently for thorough browning.
  • Whisk together in a medium bowl almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt.
  • Set aside.
  • In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat egg yolks with sweetener until pale and fluffy, 1-2 minutes.
  • Incorporate vanilla extract, butter, and ricotta.
  • Add almond & cocoa mixture slowly, alternating with the water and beating until just incorporated.
  • Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Fold in the beaten egg whites onto the chocolate batter gently.
  • Spoon batter onto the prepared muffin tray, evening out the top with the back of the spoon.
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes until the tops are just set.
  • Make sure to not overcook them, as they'll be dry rather than fudgy.
  • Indulge in one now (it's an order!), and allow the rest to cool before decorating with frosting.
  • And store in an airtight container for up to 3 days (without the frosting).
  • These type of cakes are actually killer the day after, once all the flavors have had time to mingle.
