Step 1

Preheat oven to 320°F or 160°C.

Combine the cocoa, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt. Add the eggs, honey, vanilla, and oil. Mix well until smooth and combined.

Spoon onto a small 6 to 10-inch or 15 to 20-centimeter baking tin lined with baking paper--the smaller the tin the higher the cake will rise, or alternatively spoon into 8 lined cupcake tins.

Bake the cake for 40 minutes or until cooked through. Bake smaller cupcakes for about 20 to 25 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool in pan.

Enjoy alone or with your choice of frosting.
