I was searching for a yummy chocolate cake recipe for a friend of mine and came across this on nourishingmeals.com. I was very super tasty although my creation turned out a little lumpy and the icing was grey but hey who cares, right?
Here is the link to the cake recipe
*I did the modification of adding the chia seeds instead of the xanthum gum and it worked great!
I didn’t use the frosting recipe included on the post, but instead I made some Cashew Cream Frosting. I thought it worked really well with the cake but the color is definitely grey, so if you are going for presentation it might not be the best choice 🙂
Cashew Cream Frosting
- 1 C cashews (soaked and rinsed)
- 1/4 C pomegranate jam or what ever you have on hand (just make sure it doesn’t have any added sugar- I used Crofter’s Just Fruit Spread)
- 1/4 C coconut oil (liquified)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 C almond milk
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Blend all ingredients in the vitamix and refrigerate to thicken.
