  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Generously spray a 6" cake pan and set aside. 

  2. In a double boiler, gently melt the chocolate and butter together, stirring occasionally. 

  3. While chocolate melts, whisk together chickpea flour and soy milk until a thick gooey paste has formed. Make sure chickpea mixture is evenly hydrated throughout. 

  4. Once the chocolate and butter are melted, stir in sugar until it is dissolved. Add chickpea/milk mixture, stirring with a spatula to combine. Fold in cocoa powder and baking soda until a uniform batter is achieved. 

  5. Transfer batter to prepared cake pan and bake for 35-40 minutes, until a thin crust has formed and cake doesn't wobble when gently shaken.

  6. Remove from oven and let set up in pan for 30 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. 

  7. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Dust with powdered sugar and fresh raspberries to serve. 

Recipe Notes

Do not eat this batter raw. Chickpea flour has a very potent taste when consumed raw. This is completely disappear once baked.
