Dark Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Icing **Tutorial!**

Yes, this cake is as delicious as it sounds!

What could possibly make it better?

Adding strawberries. Or chocolate chips. Or coconut.

I'm going to tell you how to do all three.

And it's sooooooooooo easy!!!! Just try it. You'll see.

I'm not a professional cake-maker and I'm sure there are many bakers out there who could vastly improve upon the icing technique(I have none), or photographers would could make this look prettier (thank you iPhone!). So for all you amazing mamas who know how to really bake and ice and photograph... let me know if you make this and send me your tips and tricks!

The best part for me? There is no sugar in this. None. Not even in the delicious cream cheese icing. The only sweetener is organic maple syrup.

If you'd like to have a double layer cake as shown in the pictures, simply double the recipe and use round cake pans.


You'll need:


For Dairy-Free: sub coconut milk and coconut oil for the milk and butter.

For a Chocolate Coconut Cake? Add 1 teaspoon of coconut extract. Use coconut milk and coconut oil instead of milk and butter. And instead of the cream cheese icing, melt down semi-sweet chocolate chips and use them as an icing, and sprinkle coconut shavings alllllllll over. Yum!!
