I made this cake for my friends birthday celebration and it was so good I decided to make it for my birthday too! This cake is so easy to make, tastes moist and delectable! I have received feedback from multiple friends and family that say this cake tastes delicious. The good news for you, me and my friends is this recipe produces a relatively healthy chocolate cake. My recipe includes butter and flour because I really wanted to have CAKE for my birthday. You know what I mean? These ingredients can be considered a very healthy option compared to most cake recipes. I used a sprouted-spelt four because I didn’t want to compromise the texture and prefer grass fed butter which gives it a rich flavor. Feel free to use oil to replace the butter if you’d like making this cake completely plant based, and look below for more tips! Lets get to the recipe shall we?!
Makes ONE 9inch round cake layer or two 6" round cakes
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/5 tsp salt
3/4 cup coconut sugar + 1/4 cup lakanto sweetener*
1.5 sprouted spelt flour *
6 Tablespoons butter (or oil)
1 Tbl ACV
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup water
* You can also do 1/2 coconut sugar + 1/2 Lakanto sweetener or just do all coconut sugar!
p.s. I don't recommend doing all lankanto because it will give the cake a "crunchy" outer texture when cooled.
* Don't "pack" the flour in your measuring cups but spoon it in lightly! This will avoid having a dry cake
Mix all your dry ingredients in a bowl with a whisk then add your wet ingredients and stir with a spatula until all the lumps are gone. Try not over mixing. Pour into a prepared cake pan. I like to add a light coating of non-stick and a round piece of parchment paper to ensure that my cake will come out easy!
Pour in a 9inch round cake pan and bake at 350 for 25-30 min. Once a toothpick comes out clean you'll know they're done. Set on a cooling rack for 10 min. before removing from cake tin.
Frost your cake when it's reached room temperature. And use your favorite frosting or sprinkle to decorate!
If you want a healthy chocolate frosting recipe:
2 cups of steamed sweet potatoes
1 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup
2 TBL avocado or 1/4 avocado
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
If you need it sweeter try adding in liquid vanilla stevia drops until you're sweet tooth is satisfied. I used this brand.
Add sweet potatoes and avocado in food processor and run until everything is smooth.
Then add the rest of your ingredients and taste! adding in a small amount of liquid stevia as needed.
