Chocolate Almond Flour Cake with Broiled Peanut Butter Frosting

This cake reminds me of my days in Texas. My bosses wife taught me how to make a quick chocolate cake with broiled peanut butter frosting, but it was a gluten cake and packed full of sugar. I have used that inspiration, and that wonderful cake to create this grain-free and refined sugar-free version.


The cake is sweetened with honey, and the frosting is sweetened with coconut sugar. These are both great sweetener options. Honey is considered a super food, because of its antioxidant qualities; and coconut sugar has a low glucose level making it a great substitute for diabetics or those just trying to watch their sugar in take. I love coconut sugar because it does NOT taste like coconut! It has a flavor like brown sugar! It’s great!


Frosting to me is a major part of the cake, however I am not a fan of making frosting! Quick frosting recipes like this one are just awesome! This cake recipe is definitely a family favorite and one of my favorite cakes to make for my birthday! I hope you enjoy it!

Chocolate Cake Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vinegar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Broiled Peanut Butter Frosting

  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar or packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all natural peanut butter or any nut butter works
  • 2 Tbsp. almond milk or regular milk


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Using an 8X8 square baking dish, add all of your dry ingredients.
  • In a small mixing bowl add the wet ingredients and stir. Be careful that your melted butter isn't too hot, or your eggs will cook in the butter (not good!).
  • Add the wet ingredients to your dry ingredients, in the baking dish, and mix well using a small whisk or a fork. Make sure to get all the clumps out of the cocoa powder.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • While the cake is baking, mix together your frosting ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  • Once cake comes out of the oven, pour frosting ingredients over the cake, spread evenly.
  • Set your oven on broil, and place the warm cake back in the oven. Let the frosting broil, but keep an eye on it! It will only take 10-15 seconds!!! Don't let the frosting burn.
  • Take it out of the oven, and let the cake cool a bit. It's best to eat warm, but even cold is delicious! Enjoy!
