Easy and tasty 2-ingredient chocolate cake

I found this super-easy recipe for a two-ingredient, no-bake chocolate cake.

I tried it, and can testify to how easy it is, and how tasty and rich-chocolaty the cake is.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of chocolate chips. (I recommend dark chocolate, which is loaded with beneficial antioxidants. Better still, go for either semi-sweet or no sugar. Instead of sugar, which has zero nutritional value and is really, really bad for us, substitute with non-glucose, natural sweeteners like erythritol and stevia.)
  • 1½ cups pumpkin or banana puree. (I used no-sugar pumpkin puree, rich in fiber and beta-carotene.)

Instructions:

  • Grease or line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Microwave the chocolate chips at 1 minute intervals, stirring in between intervals until chips are melted and smooth. (It took me about 4-5 minutes.)
  • Stir in puree until combined.
  • Pour chocolate-puree batter into pan. Smooth top; tap bottom of pan to eliminate bubbles.
  • Refrigerate until set (30-60 minutes).
  • Top with berries or sprinkled powdered sugar.

Enjoy!

Wow! This sounds like a “killer” recipe. I can hardly wait to try it. Thanks for the “heads up” on a virtually all chocolate cake. Who doesn’t like that, and this one is actually beneficial to those who eat it.

I got a hold of some extreme dark chocolate bars recently and could not stop eating them. This looks like a better way to go, getting pumpkin at the same time

Heeeeyyyyy-THAT sounds GOOD! And it fits my rules for cooking-If there’s multiple steps to it, I doubt I’ll do it, but these are such easy steps I’ll try it on payday (about a week out).
