Let Me Eat Cake!

  • Hot Fudge Cake

I was looking for a healthier cake recipe for Mother’s Day. I wanted something that didn’t have white flour or white sugar and it had to be chocolate! I found this recipe from the EatPlant-Based blog and had to try it.  I substituted coconut sugar for the brown sugar and still got good results.  (You know that most of the brown sugar sold is just white sugar with a little molasses added, right?)

 

 

The assembly is rather strange.  There is no sweetener in the cake batter other than the natural sweetness of the applesauce.  The sugar all goes into a hot water mixture that is poured over the cake batter in the pan.

 

As the cake bakes the batter rises to the top and a pudding forms in the bottom.  Once the cake cools you invert it and serve with the pudding on top (no frosting required!)  Here’s the finished cake.

One note – it’s best to cool the cake completely and then leave it in the pan until it’s ready to serve.  I tried flipping it over onto a plate while it was still slightly warm and the pudding ran all over the place. I ended up flipping it back in and chilling it until the next day. That’s why there are no pretty pictures of it being served.  It was still good!
