If you’re looking for a healthy decadent treat this cake is your ticket. One might even go so far as to say you could make a meal out of it. The results look gourmet but this recipe is deceivingly quick and easy… or should I say “a piece of cake”!
2 Cups of cooked Quinoa
1/3 cup of Milk or Milk substitute
1 tsp Vanilla extract
3/4 cup of Butter or Ghee or Coconut oil
1 and 1/2 Cups Cane sugar
1 Cup Cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend at a high speed for a couple minutes. Line bottom of 9X9″ pan with parchment paper. Pour blended ingredients into pan and bake for about 30 minutes. Test for moistness with a toothpick to be sure when its ready. Allow for cake to cool completely before icing.
2 Cups Whip Cream or Coconut Cream
1 Cup Chocolate Chips (Pssst…Vital Health has an amazing selection)
Heat cream until it gently simmers then pour over one cup of chocolate chips. Whisk to combine then cool in fridge for 2-3 hours. When fully chilled, use a mixer to whip into soft peaks then it’s all ready to spread on the cake. Garnish with fresh strawberries or whatever else you’re heart desires.
