First, let me give you the background on this cake. It is made from a mix from Wellness Bakeries (as is the "ganache"). It was a sample my boss got at work; I was tasked with baking it and bringing it in for a taste test.
Per serving, this cake has:
- Fewer grams of sugar than a quarter of an apple
- More protein than a scrambled egg
- More antioxidant power than 6 cups of blueberries
- More fiber than a bowl of bran flakes
- Fewer calories than a serving of yogurt
So why am I bragging about this healthy cake? I'm not sure - I guess it just surprises me that a piece of cake that is better for me than yogurt, bran flakes, an egg, an apple, and blueberries actually tastes good! I'm not an affiliate of Wellness Bakeries. In fact, I've never met or talked to the Wellness Bakeries people; I'm definitely not getting any credit for telling you about this cake. It's just interesting. Somewhere on the Wellness Bakeries website, I read that they are developing more mixes, including gluten free.
I hope we will start carrying it at work (healthy chocolate cake would be a great finish to a grass-fed steak dinner, no?).
