This is the most delicious, decadent, flourless chocolate cake that you will ever taste. My mom used to make this cake for birthdays and special family gatherings all the time. We have made the perfect tweaks to make sure it can be enjoyed in this Mediterranean meal guide. The ingredients consist mainly of chocolate, walnuts, eggs, butter and coconut oil. After all, there is no better combination than chocolate and coconut. Chocolate lovers will love this dessert!

Makes8 servings


  • 6 eggs, at room temperature
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cup (180 g) walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick/114 g) soft butter, plus more to grease the pan
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup (96 g) coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) honey
  • 2 tablespoons (10 g) cacao powder
  • 1 oz (50 g) dark chocolate
  • Sliced strawberries, for serving, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8-inch (20-cm) cake pan with butter and place a piece of parchment paper on the bottom. Cut the paper to fit exactly in the pan.

  2. Separate the yolks from the egg whites and place each in separate bowls.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt and the lemon juice using a mixer until they become white and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the walnuts to the bowl with the egg whites.

  4. In a smaller bowl, beat the soft butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar and honey with a mixer. Add the egg yolks and cacao powder and beat until mixed well.

  5. Take half of the mixture from the egg yolk bowl and add it to the bowl of egg whites and walnuts. Set aside the other half of the egg yolk mixture.

  6. Add the egg white mixture to the prepared pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the cake; if it comes out with no crumbs, the cake is ready.

  7. Let the cake cool completely then transfer to a serving platter. When completely cool, spread the remaining egg yolk mixture on top and over the sides. Grate the dark chocolate on top and serve with sliced strawberries if you like.

Nedi's Tip:

If the walnuts are not already chopped, then add them into a small food processor and pulse until they become finely chopped.
