Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

Buttermilk Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake

Scott loves chocolate cake.  On Father's day I decided to make him a cake that fits our food rules.  THIS IS WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!
I tried making this cake with layers - cooked great, tasted great!  However the icing made the layers slip so next time I will try making this in a rectagle cake pan and put icing on top.  I will let you know how it turns out!

Buttermilk Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/3 cups honey
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup melted butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk
Instructions:
  1. Mix dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add eggs, oil or butter and buttermilk.
  3. Mix with beaters until batter is smooth and well mixed.
  4. Butter two round cake pans or one 9×13 inch cake pan.
  5. Bake round cakes at 350° for 25-30 or a 9×13 inch cake for 35-40 minutes.  OR, leave the cakes in the oven until a toothpick poked in the middle comes out clean. 
  6. Allow the cakes to cool completely before removing them from the pans. Use a butter knife to loosen the edges from the sides of the pan.
  7. Place the cakes on plates.
  8. Put icing between layers and ice cake (I used cream cheese frosting)
