Favorite things about life right now:

  1. Layers of this lemon cake, plus that ultra-creamy-want-to-dip-my-finger-in-it-frosting.
  2. Walks through the blooming aspen trees with heavy clouds of rain above and balmy temperatures keeping me cozy.

Is anybody else guilty of this: balancing your laptop on your little mobile treadmill, so you can pack in a work out and get a jumpstart on work in order to make extra room the day for more cake?

Why yes, yes I do.

layer after layer of awesomeness

Last week I tried something that I’ve been wanting to do for what seems like forever.

I actually made a flourless cake that was: legit flourless.

It was chocolate with another layer of chocolate, with chocolate frosting, more chocolate on top of that, and even more chocolate after that.

It was everything dreams are made of.

Anyway, since that was a huge success, I wanted to try my hand at a lemon version of this Blackout Healthy Paleo Chocolate Cake.

The results were timeless.

A decadent rich cake made with white sweet potatoes (to keep the colors on point) and frosted with a dreamy lemon coconut frosting, made out of boiled sweet potatoes.

Once again, dreams.

My mom teases me about the way I stuff cauliflower, avocado, and sweet potatoes into my desserts.

But I can’t help it!

For me, it’s not so much just a health thing, as much as… this is really fun stuffing as many veggies as I can into a cake and disguising the flavor.

I think I get a high out of it.

Anyway, if stuffing veggies into cake isn’t for you, I won’t hold it against you.

But I will say: you’re missing out!

I make cakes loaded with regular flour, regular sugar, and coconut oil frosting, but sometimes a cake packed with sweet potatoes and avocado just makes me smile.

    About to try this today! Your cake looks SO lovely! Did you frost between the layers and around the outside, as well as drizzle the glaze on top? <3

    Hi! How long do you steam the sweet potatoes for? And how long roughly do you chill the cake in the freezer before frosting?

    I loved this recipe! So delicious. But I found it came out really dense. Do you have any suggestions to make it a little fluffier? Maybe a little less sweet potato?
