Blackout healthy paleo chocolate cake. Best gluten free chocolate cake- made with sweet potato and avocados! An easy paleo birthday or celebration cake that is moist and delicious.
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?
- 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. 🙂
Enjoy my sweet friends!
