Healthy Chocolate Cake

You can never have too many healthy cake recipes, right? There’s something about chocolate cake that is a classic!

This no sugar chocolate cake is a cake for serious chocolate lovers. Dark chocolate lovers preferred, however anyone can enjoy it’s rich and deep flavors.

It’s also a chocolate cake for those that love a good moist cake, but also can appreciate a dryer texture. This cake will be so moist when you take it out of the oven. If you pour that chocolate glaze over it and eat it right away, I can attest to it’s succulent softness. However, if you wait to eat it and place it in the refrigerator, be prepared for it to dry out a little bit. The top with become a bit more crunchy (just a little), and the inside will still be soft!

It’s a very diverse cake as far as cakes go!

The best part?! It’s all sugar free and Trim Healthy Mama friendly.

When you don’t put sugar in a cake, it obviously will be much less sweet. In fact, it will be pretty tasteless. However, you don’t have to live sweet-less. There are plenty of sweeteners that are not filled with the toxicity of sugar, and can be used to add some sweetness to your life!

Natural sweeteners are diverse and many. There sometimes seems like there is no limit to the amount of natural sweeteners you can choose from.

 

Gentle Sweet by THM

This is my top sugar replacement resource. I use it in nearly all my sweet recipes. It does not have the bitter aftertaste that some stevia blends have and it is extremely pure.

Pure Stevia by THM

This pure stevia from THM is excellent in drinks and smoothies. It is completely pure and very sweet!

Monk Fruit by Lakanto

This is my favorite monk fruit blend. They do an excellent job making a very pure product.

Powdered Monk Fruit by Lakanto

Lakanto brings a stellar product for a powdered sweetener, which is great for making icings!

Brown Sugar Alternative by Swerve

Swerve is a bit more widely available in grocery stores. Their brown sugar alternative is my personal favorite.

How can I Sweeten a Cake without Sugar?

For this recipe we are going to use Gentle Sweet from Trim Healthy Mama as our antirural sweetener. THM has some of the best products that I have found for adding taste and sweetness to your low carb or sugar free lifestyle. They really have learned how to harness the power of stevia in a way that doesn’t leave a bitter aftertaste. 

There certainly are other natural sweeteners that you can choose from to sweeten a cake, but for this no sugar chocolate cake it makes the most sense to use a sweetener that will balance out the bitterness of unsweetened cocoa power without adding more bitterness!

What is the Healthiest Cake to Eat?

By now I’m sure you have figured out that I really like this no sugar chocolate cake! It’s just THAT delicious! However you maybe wondering if there are other sugar free cakes that I enjoy as well. Great question! I have to tell you that the inspiration for this recipe came from a number of sources. A few of which was in the Trim Healthy Table cookbook. I wonder if you can guess the original recipe that I started playing around with? 

THMers can you guess it?! Alright I’ll tell you. The Trim Healthy Table cookbook has a Butter Bundt Cake recipe (pg 300) that is the recipe that I make every year for Christmas morning. I started thinking this past Christmas that the recipe would taste great with chocolate! 

After playing around with that recipe and a few zucchini cake recipes (like this one from Brianna Thomas), this no sugar chocolate cake was born and it’s one of my favorite chocolate cakes ever! 

I also can’t help but love the Bundt pan, which I think makes this cake look completely stunning! 

Nordic Ware Bundt Pan

Isn't this Bundt Pan adorable! I love the design! I've never had a cake to this pan even a little, which of course is a nice bonus.

Making a Sugar Free Glaze

One of the toughest parts of getting this cake right was making the glaze. This glaze is not your average no sugar chocolate cake glaze! Nope! It is going to use actual chocolate, which means that if you put it in the refrigerator, this cake will harden on top as the chocolate solidifies. This adds a nice texture to it in my opinion! 

If the cake does not already have ample air bubbles on top, you can poke holes in the cake for the chocolate glaze to seep into.

The Final Results of the No Sugar Chocolate Cake

This cake is best eaten right away after the glaze goes on, however you can refrigerate the cake for up to a week. Are you ready to give this cake a try! It is great for birthdays, valentines day, or other special occasions. I think the results were pretty tasty!
