I wanted to bake a “healthy” chocolate cake and in cases like that I usually make a Beetroot chocolate cake. But on this very day I didn’t have any beetroot in my fridge and so with some tweaking and hoping and substituting this cake was born – Baked Sweet Potato Chocolate Cake.
You know what – it turned out better than my beetroot version … and so this is the NEW chocolate cake in our house! It is softer and sweeter – even though the same amount of sugar is used. This is because the sweet potato is baked in the oven till caramelized on the edges and it is naturally sweet.
Not to say the beetroot chocolate cake is no longer good enough, if I can’t get sweet potatoes then it will be back on the menu shortly but this cake has really stolen the show.
