One of my absolute favorite desserts to have is a good moist cake. Especially silk cakes, because they're mostly... well, chocolate and sugar! But man is it ever bad for your health. We have far too much sugar in our foods and the over consumption is taxing on our organs. Most of the raw desserts rely on nuts and dates, which although are high in good fats and low glycemic sugars, you're still not supposed to have it very often. And not to mention they take a long prep time and have an extensive ingredient list sometimes. Then, I found THIS. Cue my hercules clap + ghetto booty dance (all in the privacy of my home I assure you).
This silk cake recipe is packed with plant based protein from hemp, contains the antioxidants and nutrients from cacao, utilizes hardly any sugar (you can substitute agave here too) and brings in the silky smooth texture of coconut.
And the bonus? It takes 5 minutes to prepare, and only 1 hour in the fridge to set. Or... you can be like me and blend this in a chilled bowl so you can have it like pudding right afterwards... HA!
Makes one 4 inch Cake
2 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons cacao powder
1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
¼ cup hemp seeds
How to Prepare: Blend all your ingredients together in a food processor until the texture is pudding like. Place your batter into your mini cake pan and garnish with more hemp seed pressed with a fork. Let your cake set in your refrigerator for 1 hour. So simple! So delicious! Enjoy!
