  • Add 1 tablespoon of butter to a cast iron skillet and place in the oven while mixing the rest of the ingredients together. (Does not have to be preheated.)
  • Combine coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of the butter, and cream cheese. Either melt on the stove or microwave.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Whisk until combined.
  • Add eggs, coconut milk, sweetener, and vanilla to the coconut oil, butter, and cream cheese mixture.
  • Beat on low/medium for 1 minute or until smooth.
  • Add flour, cocoa powder and baking powder mixture to other ingredients and beat until just combined.
  • Remove cast iron skillet from oven and swirl butter around so that it greases the bottom and sides of the skillet.
  • Pour batter in skillet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes. Insert a knife in the middle of the cake to test doneness. Do not overbake.
  • Serve with homemade whipped topping and shaved unsweetened chocolate.
