Reluctant Housewife: Healthy Chocolate Cake
If you haven't noticed I've been doing a lot of cake making lately. I mean, who doesn't like cake and want cake all. of. the. time. I know I do! So, because I can't eat cake, not should anyone really, eat cake all of the time you have to find a way around it. And, that's what I've been doing!
Last week I gave you breakfast cake and now I give you healthy chocolate cake! This super moist, dark chocolate cake is full of protein. 7 grams to be exact! You can have it anytime of the day and it won't make you crash from sugar because the only sugar in it is a 1/4 cup of maple syrup. Seems to good to be true? You should ask my boyfriend who devoured the whole thing in a couple of days.
Let them eat healthy cake.
