Is it cake? Is it a brownie? All I know its freakin’ delicious. It’s a super chocolatey, not overly sweet, moist as hell cake-brownie bar and its to die for. Did I mention it’s super chocolate? That’s the key here peeps. If you are craving chocolate then I’ve got you covered.
This cake contains less sugar than most recipes and yet my husband, who normally tends to like things super sweet gave this cake a double thumbs up. Win-win!
It’s one of the first few times I’ve worked with Einkorn flour and I’m in love with it. It’s a little tricky at first. I went thru a couple of batches to nail these down but totally worth it. I went to the store and picked up another bag. Its gonna be Einkorn all around for the next few weeks.
Whats so special about Einkorn? It has about 40% more protein than regular wheat. Bonus. And it’s packed with more vitamins and minerals than traditional wheat as well. Its higher in EFAs, potassium, phosphorus, and B6. Plus its a bit easier to digest so you won’t get so gassy after eating. Those around you will rejoice.
I dolloped on a little bit of coconut whip cream for good measure and a dusting of dark cocoa powder. (Fancy fancy) Honestly, though, you could just nosh on this cake as is and it’s delicious.
It’s moist and awesome. It’s a treat that feels way more decadent than it is. And life is all about balance, right? When I’m craving chocolate I need me some chocolate. So go ahead and give Einkorn a try. It’s very easy to work with once you get the hang of it. Just be patient and enjoy the taste of sweet victory.
