The ultimate chocolate cake and frosting!

choccakeBLOG

I have been experimenting with our original Chocolate Oatmeal cake and have finally come up with a recipe (combination of a couple others) that makes a healthy, sugar free, MOIST and most delicious cake if you like chocolate! If you remember, the original cake called for chocolate chips. With organic chocolate chips being so expensive I wanted to use organic cocoa instead. The topping is from another recipe that we love using incorporating coconut oil. Hope you enjoy this. We do!

CAKE:

1. Mix, bring to the boil and let stand for a few minutes:

1 1/4 cups water

1 cup rolled oats

2. Mix in large bowl:

1 1/2 cups spelt or whole wheat flour (I use sprouted spelt.)

2 eggs

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 /2 tsp salt

1/2 cup yogurt

3/4 cup honey (Melt if too hard.)

3. Add oat mixture and mix well.

4. In now empty oat pan melt and mix:

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

5tbsp cocoa

1/2 cup water

5. Add the above to the main bowl and mix well. It will begin to bubble and rise so you do want to make sure you use a large enough bowl.

6. Pour into a 13″ x 9″ pan, bake at 350F for 25-45 mins depending on the thickness. When I triple this mixture I find I can make 3 big cakes and three small ones, just that bit thinner but makes them last us a little longer!

 

FROSTING:

1/2 cup of cocoa or carob powder

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

2 tbsp maple syrup

1. Mix the above together and pour over cake. I have found it easier to cut the cake into slices first and then add the topping.

This cake is SO versatile, staying moist and freezing well. It can be eaten straight out of the freezer!

Happy eating!

    I’ve had this cake and it is the most delicious cake I’ve ever eaten. It’s chewy and moist. It’s nearly addictive.
