Our family consists of a bunch of chocolate lovers. We are such fans of chocolate that my husband has said that dessert isn’t dessert unless it has chocolate in it. And, he wasn’t joking!
We don’t make cake very often. However, when we do, it is chocolate. We make carrot cake on occasion. That gets a pass because it has traditionally been a favorite of ours. But, that’s definitely the exception to the chocolate rule. Up until now, it has been the only exception. That has changed.
We had some friends over for dinner last week. When I asked them beforehand if there was anything they didn’t eat, I got a one-word answer, “chocolate.” What? WHO does not eat chocolate? Well, it’s just my friend’s husband. But, nevertheless, no chocolate for dessert. So much for ALL my go-to desserts. I had made carrot cake for them recently. So, I didn’t want to repeat that again. It was time to look for a different kind of dessert recipe. Keep in mind, we like for our desserts to be relatively healthy and as gluten and/or grain-free as possible. So, this was a bit of a challenge. A fun one, though, I have to admit
In my search, I found a recipe that looked amazing. I usually don’t like to make something for guests unless we have tested it. But, I felt confident that this one would work. And, boy, did it work!
I highly recommend this if you like easy, healthy and delicious cake!
1/2 cup pure maple syrup or honey
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
