Rachael Finch has shared her remarkably simple recipe for a frosted chocolate cake you ‘won’t feel guilty about’.
The former Miss Universe Australia, 33, took to Instagram to show fans how to make the indulgent dessert with healthy alternatives including almond flour, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and a surprising ingredient: a splash of apple cider vinegar.
The model mum-of-two, who shares daughter Violet, seven, and son Dominic, four, with husband Mike Miziner, starts by whisking almond flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, baking soda, cocoa powder and protein powder from her brand, Kissed Earth.

In another bowl, she whisks eggs, coconut oil and apple cider vinegar before adding a drop of almond milk.
Rachael then stirs the dry ingredients into the liquid mixture, mixing until smooth before adding boiling water until fully combined.
She pours the batter into a greased cake pan and leaves it to bake in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted – then turns her attention to the ganache frosting.

While the cake is baking, Rachael soaks dates in boiling water for about 15 minutes, then adds them into a blender with water and blitzes until smooth.
She adds cocoa powder and vanilla extract and blends once more before leaving the ganache to rest in the fridge.
Once the cake has cooled, she spreads the frosting over the top and serves.
