Chocolate Cake

Hi Friends,

A blog with the name ChasingCake must have a cake recipe in it at some point. Well, that point has come. Chocolate cake is here. Yay!

This is not the kind of chocolate cake that will leave you in an unwanted sugar coma. Or the kind of chocolate cake that is so sweet you feel like you just ran across the desert and need to chug gallons of water. Even better, not the kind of chocolate cake that will make you a slave to the gym!

Chocolate Cake

It is just sweet enough, just moist enough and just healthy enough to make it delicious while satisfying that sweet tooth! It is chasingcake.com approved!

Promise you wont regret making this one!

 Ingredients:

-1 Banana

-2 eggs

– 1/3 cup Coconut Oil

-1 teaspoon baking powder

-1/3 cup brown rice flour

-1/3 cup maple syrup- the good kind! I got mine from Trader Joes. Check your ingredients! There should only be one.

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

-1/3 cup cooled drip coffee

 Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend together the eggs, banana, coconut oil, maple syrup and drip coffee until the banana is blended in smoothly. Transfer to a bowl. In a separate bowl combine baking powder, brown rice flour, salt and cocoa powder. Gradually add the dry mixture to wet mixture, making sure there are no chunks. Spray/butter a loaf pan and pour in mixture. Drizzle one tablespoon maple syrup on top before placing in the oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out cleanly from the center.

This recipe was inspired by the amazing girls from Toneitup.com! They created their own Perfect Fit Protein powder that was in their original recipe- I replaced it with brown rice flour. I actually made two batched of this cake. One with their Perfect Fit Protein and one with the brown rice flour. They were both delicious and I couldn’t tell them apart.

Although the ingredients are clean, remember this is a treat…but one that you can enjoy without the guilt!
