Best Cocoa Cake
I got this recipe from a friend a few months ago - maybe closer to a year. I stuck it in my "Healthy Recipes to Try" folder. Finally this week I decided to try it and boy, I was glad I did!
Here's the recipe:
1 cup butter
3 cups Coconut sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup raw cacao
3 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 cups spelt flour
1 1/3 cup sour cream
1 1/3 cup boiling water
Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.
Makes 1 three-layer cake OR 1 9x13 cake.
