Instructions:

  • Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl, using a stick blender, blend until smooth
  • Pour into a lined square baking dish (8.5 inch)
  • Bake at 180C/350F for 20-25 minutes until cooked in the centre
  • Slice into squares, rectangles or triangle wedges

Side Notes: 

To make sure this doesn’t taste “eggy” you must use a really good dark unsweetened cacao powder and mix/emulsify well.  I personally found it to be a little eggy but, you have to remember there is no flour in this!  I think it was pretty good considering.
