are you ready to make the easiest cake ever??
well a few days ago I Instagramed this breakfast
here is what Lori and I did – we followed our favorite cake recipe and threw in some cinnamon and cherries. we have been brainstorming some Valentine recipe ideas and naturally we came up with this one.
this cake recipe is so easy that your other half, the one that may not be the best in the kitchen, cannot mess it up.
the perfect breakfast for two.
great things about this cake recipe are:
- it is made with chocolate
- easy to make
- made with cherries, which we love with chocolate
- contains no added sugar, so great for people like us who cannot handle a lot of sugar
place cakes in oven.
pure2raw recipe: cinnamon cherry hazelnut chocolate cakes (gluten free, grain free, soy free, sugar free)
prep-time: 5 minutes
bake-time: 30-35 minutes
makes 2 mini cakes or one large cake, servings 1-2
- 3 tablespoons hazelnut flour (hazelnut meal- ground up hazelnuts)
- 5 tablespoons cocoa
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 whole eggs
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup sweet potato puree (or pumpkin or applesauce)
- as many cherries as you want (any fruit would work)
Place your hazelnut flour, cinnamon, and cocoa powder into a bowl. Next add in your eggs, sweet potato puree, and apple cider vinegar.
Stir till combined. Lightly oil your ramekins and spoon the batter into the ramekins. Place cherries on top and press them into cakes. We used frozen cherries that we let come to room temperature a little.
Placed in a 350 degree oven. Bake for about 30- 35 minutes. To tell when these cakes are done – the sides will start to pull away from the ramekin and light to touch.
**note: if you use muffin pan I would just fill up two muffins liners.
Let cool for a few minutes and pop out of ramekin.
