There was a birthday at our home last week, which was an occasion that called for, as all birthdays do: cake. And we sure did find a winner of a recipe! A cake unlike any other that is rich, lightly moist, full of body, and full of chocolate.
Enter “Special Occasion Chocolate Cake” from page 384 of Trim Healthy Mama, topped with the fluffy and rich “Chocolate Frosting” from Paleo Indulgences (ignore the worldview behind the title, please). A recipe combo that I think would also be perfect for creme-filled cupcakes.
- If you have food sensitivities, you’ll be glad to know that these recipes are gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free, making for a happy tummy.
- If you’re a Trim Healthy Mama, this cake is an S.
The simple decorating is spread icing with cocoa powder sprinkled on top. Whenever I add icing to a cake, I’m reminded of the day years ago when we decided we wouldn’t be doing fancy cake decorating in our kitchen again… that was quite the adventure.
And the candle holes are for extra beauty, attesting to the joyful celebration of Breezy’s birthday.
“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints,
for those who fear Him have no lack!”
