You know the part about owning a home where nothing is ever complete and you never feel like everything is absolutely 100% perfect with your house? Well that is exactly what blogging is like, because as I’ve grown as a blogger and photographer, my older work starts to look… well, like ‘shite’ in comparison!!
With a few years of blogging experience my recipes have defiantly progressed and I have started to hone in on certain skills. Some Paleo bloggers shift their focus more to nutrition, exercise, social media, and others to photography. Photography is the area that I have chosen to grow in, and when I look back and go through my older past posts, I literally cringe! That being said, I do have to keep them up online else there would be a pretty sad selection of recipes but also there are some really great recipes that just need a photo upgrade.
Now, I have known for ages that I’ve needed to update my old chocolate cake recipe as it was at least two years old and in all honesty not really that good, when a few weeks ago I received a comment on the post about how dense it is, which was really quite an accurate description. Do people really go back that far on my blog?? Apparently they do, and it was a pretty wow moment for me that readers don’t just hit the top posts and only make my current recipes, but they actually dig back that far!!
Wake up call to get my act together and do a spring clean of recipes.
So, after the bad feedback from my past cake recipe I set to work recreating a brand new recipe, the Ultimate Paleo Chocolate Cake, and YAASSSSS I have totally nailed it!! This has got be my best recipe of the year – so far!!
Light, moist (yes I dared mention that word!), cakey and nothing like a brownie baked in a cake tin.
Some recipes just happen and come together with ease, and this one genuinely did (it did help that I said a little prayer before!).
A few tips to a successful gluten, dairy, and Paleo cake, whip the egg whites, sift the ingredients and make the icing before the cake as it needs to set and be firm.
I really do hope that this updated recipe lives up to your expectations, and that baking it is a fun and easy experience. I hope you find the cake to be utterly delicious and that non-paleo folk enjoy it as much as you do! Please leave your thoughts in the comment section below as I really do value the feedback and by leaving a comment it helps me to improve my recipes.
