Birthday Cake

For my birthday I asked to make my own cake.
I know - doesn't sound fun to most, but to be able to make something healthier, where everyone 'has' to eat it and enjoy, sounded fun :-)!!
I am always excited to have excuses to try new alternatives to the ever so 'guilty desserts.' I don't like to make sweets often, but when I do, I really try to make it the healthiest I can. (unfortunately for those that have to eat it :)) But I never mind it!

Chocolate Cake with German Chocolate Frosting

The cake turned out pretty good, it seemed slightly dry.
It was a vegan recipe, so I think it would be perfect with one egg added! It does have more sugar than I would like, but hey - gotta bend somewhere for a birthday cake!
And the secret ingredient..... BEETS! Yep - no one would know!

You can get the recipe for the cake HERE
And the German Chocolate Frosting HERE
(go easy on the cornstarch - I over thickened mine)

Let me know if you try it!

  1. I've done the frosting on the other cake she mentions in her post for frosting on Fat Free Vegan. I made it for my hubby's birthday! So yummy! I loved loved loved the frosting. Okay, the whole flipping thing was good! I had to send the rest with my hubby to work, cuz I was eating all of it!

  2. P.S. Happy Birthday! I've been thinking about you!
