Ok, so I’m not sure how “healthy” this chocolate cake is. But it is delicious anyways! If you are looking for a rich, borderline fudgy chocolate cake to satisfy that sweet tooth, this recipe will send you over the moon. With hopefully a little less guilt!
And I am always up for trying new recipes. This one caught my eye because it has olive oil, coffee and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Count me in!
Basic Chocolate Cake from Country Living
Confession: I went ahead and topped mine with the Deep Chocolate Glaze. Move right along, nothing healthy about that glaze here. Anything that has a cup of heavy cream in it is automatically eliminated from any “healthy(ish)” recipe list.
*But it is OH SO GOOD*
Here’s my cake from last night.
I just love the “messy border of rainbow sprinkles” look. Too cute.
And our kids loved this cake! LC was literally licking her plate. Although you could serve her a dog bone covered in chocolate glaze and she’d gobble it up.
Bonus: this cake is mixed by hand! No mixer required! Because when I’m trying to diet and exercise the last thing I want to do is lift a heavy stand mixer! Hooray!
Another bonus: no buttercream and no powdered sugar mess!
