Who doesn't love ending the perfect meal with a delicious slice of cake. But, in my family there can sometimes be a bump in the road when it comes to traditional desserts and gluten free is a must.
The best thing about eating healthier is that little alterations can make a big difference. Most of us tend to think that in order to cut calories you have to cut out flavor and luckily this isn't always true. Being that it's a new year, most of us are on a search for a healthier lifestyle. I was inspired by Aloha's natural healthy recipes and wonderful approach at clean eating by using wholesome, rustic ingredients to prepare something spectacular to enjoy with friends and family.
Some would argue that the best cake is a classic yellow cake with chocolate frosting. So, with that in mind I decided to make a cake that is just as beautiful on the inside, as it is on the outside. A gluten-free vanilla cake covered in chocolate ganache. Now chocolate ganache can be fattening when prepared with heavy cream so instead, we're using coconut milk! One can of coconut milk is only 9 grams of fat and we're using 3/4 of that. So not only is this cake gluten free but it's also low in fat and cholesterol. To take it a step further try making it dairy free and sugar free. This gf cake mocks the texture of a sponge cake and has a delicate flavor. My mom actually fell in love with this cake and had to ask me twice if it was gluten free, so it's definitely mother approved. Click below to view the video.
