Oh-em-gee girlies I’ve got something for you that is so super yummy! If you crave for something sweet then this chocolate fudge cake goodness is your next stop. I absolutely LOVE healthy cakes, it’s my all-time favorite snack. You can make lots of variations, but we’ve got a totally winning cake here!
I’ve noticed that you girls can appreciate some healthy cakes as well, because the one from my book is made A LOT 😉 I make healthy cakes and breads pretty often and always make sure to have a little stock in my freezer. If you cut the cake, then pack the slices separately and store in the freezer. This way you can easily grab a slice for on the go. It stays good up to 3 months, but they NEVER last as long with me haha! Take it out the freezer in the morning to enjoy in the afternoon.
