This is a recipe for a healthy version of chocolate cake.
- 1 cup pumpkin
- 1⁄3 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon stevia
- 5 eggs
- 2 cups almond flour
- Mix first 6 ingredients with electric mixer on medium. Then add the eggs and mix on high. Add almond flour and mix. Put in a buttered 7" x 9" baking pan. Cook at 350 F for 25 - 30 minute.
This was inedible. I have made many recipes from this site and enjoyed them, but I tried this and threw it out.
Made the cake to recipe and it was very bitter.
I made some substitutions because I can eat wheat. I only used 2 eggs, cut the stevia to 1/4 tsp (should of added more), used 1.5 cups of whole wheat pastry flour, added 3/4 cup milk (because it was dry) and added 1 tsp baking soda (thought I'd need it). This made 12 muffins, which I baked for 23 minutes. I think I added too much baking soda, so it tasted bitter. I'd omit or reduce baking soda to 1/2 tsp. These were really moist, but could have tasted better.
