Grandma came pulling up the driveway in her California blue Prius.

Baskets of blueberry muffins, purple pansies, and root beer made it’s way into the house.

Grandma visiting is always the best.

I love her presence, hugs, and value her investment in our family.

I grew up with my family making frequent trips to visit grandma and grandpa’s house on the cliff by the pacific ocean.

Things haven’t changed much since.

I still love to visit grandma. And I love it when she visits me!

After playing tourist in Leavenworth, doing the whole listening to the accordion players in their lederhosen (fun fact: my sister, best friend, and I used to dance around in our German getup and were extras in a german Christmas movie!), picking out taffy flavors with Josiah, my youngest brother- who looks like a beautiful six foot three man at only fifteen, and finding a steal on some local ceramics, we headed back for dinner and dessert!

So, about this blackout cake…

Three things you should know about this insanely-decadent-cake-you-want-on-your-side, cake for breakups, cake you want for anniversaries, birthday parties, and summer picnics. Ready?

  • Chocolate
  • Chocolate
  • And oh! Did I forget to mention, chocolate?

It’s the healthy cake that my Grandma said she would take over cheesecake. Over cheesecake, guys. This cake is for real.

And did we forget to mention that earth shattering fact that this cake has more veggies stuffed in it than your favorite cobb salad?

That’s right! We are talking straight up chocolate-salad-cake, people.

My sweet grandma watched me scoop, mix, and pour in the hot kitchen this afternoon.

Every few minutes, she would peer over in intrigue and ask, “now what do you do with that?” referring to the sweet potato, coconut oil, or avocado.

Sweet times- literally.

My Grandma, who would dare not touch a grain of quinoa or stalk of kale a few years ago and lives off her love of bread and butter said this cake was healthy enough for an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast.

That’s my kind of thinking!

Well, now that you have been convinced by my wheat-and-dairy-regular-sugar-eating grandma that you should eat this super moist gluten free cake, all that’s left say is, “I hope you top this blackout chocolate cake with more chocolate!”.

If you need help with that, see my notes. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s all.

Enjoy my sweet friends!

      Hi Liz, it hasn’t lasted more than 1 day around my house, so I’m not exactly sure, but yes- it should be stored in the fridge for a few days I’m guessing, then the freezer for longer term. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi! I’m super excited to make this cake but I was just wondering if the sweet potato in the cake in cooked before it’s blended into the batter?

    Rochelle

    I canโ€™t wait to try this!! Just to make sure, the sweet potato in the cake is raw, right? I see the sweet potato in the frosting is steamed

    Kaylie, I have looked over your entire post and I, too, do not see where you posted any additional โ€œnotesโ€ on this recipe. Please be so kind as to give real information as to where to look(I.e. top-middle-bottom of post, next to, under, following, etc.) instead of simply repeating your initial instructions that clearly did not work the first time. Thank you so much !!!

      Hi Darla, I wrote it in the first copy, but then I forgot it all got deleted when my internet went down! Sorry for sending you on a wild goose chase, the notes have been updated and should be easy to find right next to the recipe now. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

    Kaylie, thank you SO MUCH! I so want to make this recipe for my new husband and couldnโ€™t figure it out! It looks BEYOND amazing and if it tastes only half as good as it looks, I know it will still be a winner!

      Kaylie

      Thank you so much Darla! Just to be clear, were you unable to figure out the recipe/were the instructions clear? You said you weren’t able to figure it out? Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey there, can another size cake pan be used if we donโ€™t have 6 inch? Any suggestions on another size or bake time adjustments? Thank you!

    • 14
      Kaylie

      Sure, you could try a five or 7 inch, if you want a layer cake, but you would need to adjust the cooking time about 5-10 minutes more or less depending on the size. If you want to make a large one layer cake, that would also work.

    Hi Kaylie ๐Ÿ˜Š I will be making this cake for my sisterโ€™s birthday per her request! Is it necessary to use black cocoa? Would dark or regular work or would it alter the taste?

    Thanks!

      Hi Nicole, to mince is to finely chop- I do this in my food processor. Where do you see the other things, for context. Thanks! Hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi! This recipe looks absolutely incredible! Is it possible to substitute flax seed eggs? Or will it change the texture?

    Kaylie, I cannot thank you enough for this recipe. First of all, I had never even made a cake before, but I got the nerve to try it for my husband’s birthday. I’ve been gluten-free / paleo for about a year, but he isn’t. I had to substitute maple syrup with coconut nectar because that’s what I had, and I think that I overcooked it a little. Nonetheless, this turned out to be the MOST DELICIOUS cake that I have ever had, even before change of diet!! Rich in flavor but not too sweet, with a thick, fudge-like consistency that is still melt-in-your-mouth moist. The icing as well, just amazing. So, so, incredibly delicious and also such a moral booster knowing you can have a professional flavor without sacrificing ingredients, that a beginner like me can accomplish! My experiments definitely do not always go as planned, and this exceeded expectations. My husband loved it, too, and was also COMPLETELY shocked when I told him the ingredients. We truly appreciate your passion and thank you for sharing these with us!

      Hi Raquel, this comment is everything- thank you so much for sharing how much you enjoyed it! I love to hear when others like chocolate cake made with sweet potatoes as much as me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey! Really excited to try this but trying to cut down on the use of coconut oil. Do you think I could sub half melted vegan spread and half vegetable oil?

      Kaylie

      Hi Kristin, I haven’t tried an egg sub- I would think it would be a bit gummy subbing with flax eggs. The eggs really help with the texture of the cake. It might be worth a try though- although it will change the recipes and texture.
