Healthy Chocolate Cake, yes it’s a first for me! I normally use everyday ingredients in my recipes until recently when I was approached by Kate from Modern Alternative Mama. She asked if I’d like to review her newest ebook Treat Yourself ~Real Food Desserts~ and since I’ve never baked like this before, I said yes! Her site is devoted to cooking as healthy and naturally as possible. She uses all natural sweeteners like honey and maple syrup; alternative flours such as almond flour and sprouted flour. I didn’t know what to expect, so into the kitchen I went and out came a beautiful healthy chocolate cake! The taste was a little different than what I’m used to, however it turned out very good! It was moist and baked up just like any other cake. Would you like a chance to try her recipes too? Kate is offering one of you a copy of her ebook, all you have to do is leave a comment below!
