We were blown away by this simple recipe that uses mostly healthy ingredients. Its so easy to throw together in minutes and bakes so quickly as well. You just have to have patience for the cool down frosting period. After that, prepare to be in chocolate heaven!

Now for that frosting you are going to fall in love. Avocado chocolate mousse/pudding has always been a favorite dessert of mine. Avocado has a neutral taste and silky smooth texture so when you add it to chocolate it adopts the flavor beautifully.

I loved adding shaved chocolate to the top of this cake but you can leave it plain or add on sprinkles – holiday themed or regular sprinkles. I personally make this cake and frosting the night before – let the cake cool overnight on the counter (in an air tight container) and the frosting stored in the fridge.

Ingredients 

Cake:

Frosting:

Optional Topping: Shaved Chocolate or Chocolate Sprinkles

    Instructions

    • *If you don't have self rising flour simply add in 1 cup regular flour and 1½ tsp baking powder.

    Cake:

    • Preheat oven to 350℉. Line a 9 inch cake pan with parchment paper.
    • In one bowl, whisk together the eggs, sweet potato, olive oil, maple syrup and vanilla until smooth. Add in the flour and cacao powder by sifting it into the bowl. Also mix in the baking soda, salt and espresso powder with a spatula until the batter is smooth. Transfer to the baking pan/dish and smooth out top. Bake for 22-25 minutes. The middle will look gooey – thats okay. Allow it to cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Frosting:

    • In a small food processor, add in the avocados, maple syrup and cacao powder. Pulse until completely smooth and fluffy. Once the cake is completely cool, spread the frosting evenly over the top. Slice and serve!

    Notes

    Refrigerate leftovers in an air tight container in your fridge. You can freeze this cake too – wrap well, defrost and enjoy!
