A Bitter Christmas… « Spoonful of Sugar Free: "Grain-Free Bitter Chocolate Cake for One
~Like I said above, please feel free to add a drizzle of honey or some liquid stevia drops to the recipe before baking so that it may satisfy your liking of chocolate. This cake is meant to serve one person, but feel free to double, triple or quadruple the recipe. The cake is gluten free, dairy-free, and of course, sugar-free!
1/4 cup cocoa powder (I like using Hershey’s Dark cocoa because it has a great, intense flavor)
2 Tablespoons of squash puree, like pumpkin, sweet potato, or butternut squash
splash of vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
Optional: 100% dark chocolate bar (I used Baker’s)
Preheat oven to 375*. Mix all of the above ingredients together. Then add a splash of water until it reaches the consistency of a thick pudding. Pour batter into a mini bread pan or a muffin tin (It makes about 4 muffins). If using, chop the 100% dark chocolate bar over the top of the batter. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
More Ideas: Try adding mint extract to the batter to make a mint chocolate cake. Also, use different topping like nuts to personalize the cake to your liking."
