Healthy Triple Chocolate Walnut Cake

Ok so I am super excited about posting this recipe. One of the mayor reasons being is that I finally came about the perfect triple chocolate cake recipe after trying and experimenting about 8 times with it.

Not only this cake recipe is delicious, moist and with loads of chocolate flavor but it is much healthier than regular versions out there. It is not as sweet, contains more fiber and less fat and the taste still as good.

The triple chocolate comes from using cocoa powder, dark chocolate chips melted into the cake batter, and whole chocolate chips used in the cake and on top of it. Can’t get better than that right?

In any event, I really think I can make money with this recipe so you should be glad I am posting it here for you to have :-) If you try it let me know what you think.

  4. Hi I love this blog! Should fresh pumpkin be steamed first or just puree it?

  5. Wendelah1,

    thanks hopefully the recipes that I post are of your liking.


    I normally use canned pumpkin but if you can’t find it or want to use fresh pumpkin you should steam it first. Let me know how it turns out and thanks for visiting my blog. :-)

  6. I made this today. It was wonderful. I did not have pumpking puree so I used a mashed banana and I still haven’t bought whole wheat pastry flour so I used half WWPF and half whole wheat flour. The cake was super moist and delightful.

  7. Jenna,

    I am glad you liked the cake. Nice thinking with the banana. I bet it was super good as well :-)
