Brownie Chocolate Cake 
By: The Jaroudi Family 
2/3 cup whole wheat flour 
2/3 cup spelt four 
2/3 cup oat flour 
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder 
1/3 cup cocoa powder 
½ cup nondairy milk unsweetened unflavored 
½ tsp apple cider vinegar 
1 tsp vanilla extract 
½ cup date paste 
½ cup unsweetened applesauce 

In a large mixing bowl, add in all the dry ingredients and mix together well. 

In a small cup mix together nondairy milk and apple cider vinegar and set aside for around five minutes to make a buttermilk substitute 

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry mixture including the buttermilk substitute. 

After the dry and wet ingredients are completely incorporated move the cake batter to a 9-inch round cake pan

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes 
[You should be able to use the toothpick test to make sure cake is fully cooked]

Let cake completely cool before removing from pan

Add our Chocolate Frosting recipe and fresh fruit for our favorite way of serving it! 

Another awesome topping option is our easy raspberry jam recipe!!

Chocolate Frosting 
By: The Jaroudi Family 
1 ½ cups cooked sweet potatoes (without the skin)
3 large pitted dates 
¼ cup cocoa powder 
1-2 tbsp of non dairy milk unsweetened/unflavored 

In a high-speed blender add all the ingredients and blend until smooth 

If frosting is not sweet enough for your taste, add 1-2 extra pitted dates 

Chocolate frosting should be very thick consistency 

Place chocolate frosting into the refrigerator for 10-20 minutes until chilled 

Frost your cakes, brownies, or any dessert… I’ve even had the chocolate frosting with just fresh fruit! 

Roasted sweet potatoes in the oven is our favorite way of making this recipe more naturally sweet 

Add in a tbsp of almond butter, walnut butter, or peanut butter for a different spin on this recipe 

I hope you'll give these recipes a try, and let us know if you liked it!

We love seeing photographs of our recipes and just in general hearing from you guys!

Made this one as a trial run for my sons birthday cake. Both my little guys enjoyed it. I prefer the vanilla cake recipe but I like both.

Looks and sounds delicious, and i almost licked my computer screen, BUTTTTTTTTTT......I am severely gluten sensitive and would need your help with substitute suggestions and I don't know if substitutes would end up ruining the recipe.......sad face icon..........

I used all oat flour and it turned out just fine. A little crumbly but still good!
