Eggless Triple Chocolate Cake

We are in the third week of Blogging Marathon and I shall be showcasing Guilt free Indulgence for three days. When it comes about chocolate I never think twice and always go for it. Chocolates are our weakness and we’d love to have some anytime a day.I wanted to make Chocolate cake but with some healthy options.So this time ,I replaced all purpose flour with whole wheat and refined sugar with coconut palm sugar.

However, this cake was for a friend’s birthday and that is why there are no pictures of cake from inside.We have some neighbors from India living in our apartment complex.This cake was a surprise for one neighbor friend from Chennai. She was very happy and loved our surprise cake . Everyone including kids enjoyed the cake and no one would have guessed the presence of wheat flour.

So let’s start the recipe.yum

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup coconut palm sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
