For all of you chocolate lovers out there who are feeling a little deprived... here's the perfect solution! This cake is absolutely delicious! It really gets rid of that occasional chocolate craving, and I personally like it much better than regular cake!

Ingredients

    1 tsp. vanilla extract

    1 c. milk, raw or organic

    1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

    2 c. coconut sugar

    1 c. millet flour

    3/4 c. peanut butter, creamy

    3/4 c. cacao powder

    1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

    1 tsp. sea salt

    2 egg

    1/2 c. coconut oil

    2 tsp. vanilla extract

    1 c. water

    1/2 c. butter

    2/3 c. cacao powder

    1 1/2 c. coconut sugar

    1/2 c. honey, raw

    1/3 c. milk, raw or organic

Directions

FOR CAKE: Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix coconut sugar, millet flour, peanut butter, cacao powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, milk, eggs, coconut oil, vanilla, and water together in a bowl. Pour batter into a greased pan (batter will be thin) Bake for 30-35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely before frosting.

FOR FROSTING: Melt butter. Move to a bowl. Stir in coconut sugar, honey, cacao powder, milk, and vanilla. Set in fridge and allow it to firm up a little, approximately 10-15 minutes. Remove from fridge and stir - it should have the same consistency and appearance as regular frosting. After cake is completely cooled, frost, and enjoy!

*NOTE: This makes a very chocolate-y cake, for those of you who are not a big fan of dark chocolate, I recommend using less cacao powder.
