Paleo Chocolate Nemesis Cake

Chocolate Nemesis Cake

This chocolate nemesis cake is paleo, dairy-free, gluten-free, refined-sugar-free. It is also very easy and quick to make, the result is a moussey, fudgey, melt in your mouth, delicious chocolatey experience.

Chocolate is the way to my food heart. I appreciate it in all its varieties; one of my favourites is a nemesis mousse cake. Before we moved abroad and before I developed intolerances I was a big chocolate nemesis/mousse cake addict and I made many and eat many versions of this yumminess. I have used all this past research to try and recreate this delicious dessert but in a healthier allergy friendly way. This recipe only uses the best ingredients and therefore makes it a pretty nutritious cake and perfect for any occasion.
