I accidentally invented this healthy chocolate cake recipe and felt I should share it with y'all. It is gluten free, grain free, dairy free and could potentially be vegan, oil free, and sugar free and soooo tasty!
400g sweet potato
2 cups potato starch
3 tbspns cocoa powder
8 frozen strawberries
1 egg (or substitute, but I haven't tried- you have been warned!)
1 tbspn vanilla extract
About half a cup to a cup dairy free milk
1 tbspn baking soda
Chocolate chips, nuts or any fun extras
1. Peel and chop sweet potato. Boil until soft. Meanwhile soak the dates and strawberries in a bowl of hot water.
2. Drain the sweet potato and fruit and throw everything (all the ingredients above except the last) into food processor. Blend uber thoroughly until the mixture is COMPLETELY smooth (or as close as it can get )
3. Stir in extras and pour into a greased cake tin. Bake at 160 C for about 45 mins (check after half an hour - do the skewer thing - take it out early if not sure as it can get too dry).
Leave to cool totally and then devour like a lunatic. (Optional).
You can also swap the strawbs for raspberries or two tbspns sweetener like maple syrup or honey.
Try it it will be a hit! Bon appetit
