There are going to be those days where you just need a piece (or two) of cake. It happens to the best of us. So why not treat yourself with something that is filled with ingredients you can pronounce.
Even if it is not for you, but for your children. Wouldn’t you feel better giving them a healthier alternative? I do!
This cake is light when you bite into it but then has a nice fudgy texture.
I can’t tell you how long it lasts as it is gone too soon. I have a feeling you will enjoy it as much as we do!

1/4 cup coconut oil
