Quinoa Chocolate Cake

Quinoa-chocolate-cake

In light of my effort to get Miss Three to eat Quinoa, I made chocolate cake.

After all what three year old doesn’t love chocolate cake? And what Mum doesn’t like sneaking some goodness into their childs diet?

This cake is super easy to make and unlike other recipes that use Quinoa flour, this cake can be made with your left over Quinoa, so no waste, another bonus for Mum 🙂

Quinoa Chocolate Cake a’la Mama Going Natural

  • 2/3 c cooked Quinoa
  • 1/3 c milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 t vanilla essence
  • 3/4 c butter
  • 1 c cacoa powder
  • 1 & 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t bicarb soda
  • 1/2 c coconut sugar

This cake, like most of my recipes is super easy to make (I am a lazy cook).

Place the first five ingredients in your Thermomix or blender & process till smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients & blend gently till combined.

Bake at 170 degrees for about 40-45 minutes.

This cake tastes even better the second day & best of all no-one will have any idea its Healthy!!

Enjoy
