  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Grease an 8-inch cake tin and cover with parchment paper, leaving 2 inches overhanging for easy removal.
  • Using a microwave or small saucepan, heat up the chocolate and butter, and whisk until combined.
  • Stir through the granulated sweetener, along with the vanilla and espresso, if using it. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating into the batter gently, until smooth. Add the cocoa powder until just combined- do not overmix.
  • Transfer the batter into the cake tin. Bake the flourless keto chocolate cake for 25 minutes, until a gentle crust has formed on top.
