Sometimes I just want to sit down with a nice hot cup of coffee and a piece of decadent chocolate cake. Especial a cake that is safe for me to eat. This cake is gluten, diary and nightshade free. I also use a sugar blend with stevia, so I am attempting to cut back on some of the many calories a cake can contain.
I chose some fresh strawberries to add to the top instead of roses or another pretty flower. I can’t remember where I learned this trick to keep the chocolate ganache shiny, but all I did was add one teaspoon of coconut oil and it looks so nice and shiny!
The multi-layered cakes are so pretty, yet sometimes I just don’t have the time or energy for those. So I modified a standard cupcake recipe so I would only have one layer. For my vegan followers, I’m sorry, this does contain eggs. But as you well know, this cake can easily be made vegan style.
Please share your pictures of the yummy cakes or deserts you’ve made lately! I would love to see them.
