Experiment (Cherry) Chocolate Cake (Minimal added sugar)
I am trying to decrease or eliminate the amount of sugar in our baked goods. Plus I really wanted cherry chocolate cake, but we didn't have enough cherries for the recipe I had...so, here it is...
2 cups organic unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup stevia
1/4 c brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tbsp flax
1/2 cup warm coffee
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 c pureed cherries (we used frozen and thawed it)
1. Preheat oven to 350 deg
2. Mix all dry ingredients. Then separately, mix all wet ingredients.
3. Combine, but do not over mix. Batter will be thick.
4. Place in greased pan, and cook for 30-35 minutes.
*We used vanilla icing to top!
