Veev Holiday Cocktails

I first learned about Veev when I had it in a blueberry Acai Mojito at True Food Kitchen.  It was love at first sight, and I’ve been hooked ever since.  So when I had an opportunity to participate in a recipe pairing with Veev Holiday Cocktails, I jumped at the chance.

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Ingredients:

8 ounces semisweet chocolate or chocolate chips

1 cup coconut oil

6 eggs

1 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp vanilla

Powdered sugar for dusting

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 375F.  Grease a 9-inch cake pan or springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.

Place your chocolate and coconut oil in a saucepan and melt over low heat (this can also be done in the microwave).  Once your chocolate and coconut oil has melted, remove from heat and transfer to a large mixing bowl.

Add your eggs one at a time and whisk well.  Gently pour your cocoa powder into the bowl and continue to stir until well blended.

Pour your batter into the pan and bake for 35-40 minutes.  The cake will have a thin crust on the top and be firm in the center.

Thanks to Veev for the opportunity!  I can’t wait to drink some more delicious Veev holiday cocktails this season.
